This week’s Weekly Bake Off challenge is Mary Berry’s Devonshire Apple Cake from her 100 Cakes and Bakes. Much as I love Mary’s recipes I’ve been feeling a bit ‘caked out’ after all the Jubilee baking so was craving something healthy and wholesome. I’ve adapted Mary’s recipe to include wholemeal self-raising flour and only half the sugar she put in. Her recipe has a delicious layer of bramley apple slices in the middle of the cake and is topped with a scattering of flaked almonds so the result is a fairly nutritious bake. My cake was delicious still warm straight from the oven and would be perfect with yoghurt, cream, fromage frais or custard – yum! Mary says that her cake looks a little unappetising when cold and mine will certainly be the same especially as it has a lot less sugar but served warm you can’t beat it and I will make this one again.
