Spiced Sultana, Cranberry and Apple Cake

message posted 11-Feb-10 12:55:59
Ingredients:

100g sultanas
75g dried cranberries
125mls Copella Apple Juice
175g unsalted butter
225g golden caster sugar, plus more for sprinkling
2 large eggs
300g plain flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon mixed spice
Grated zest of 1 lemon
2 eating apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
Melted butter to finish
Method

Soak the sultanas and cranberries in apple juice overnight. Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas mark 4. Grease and line a 20cm loose bottomed cake tin. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating as you go. Fold in the dry ingredients and lemon zest followed by the soaked fruit and any juices. Spoon into the tin and level. Arrange the sliced apples on top of the mixture, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with caster sugar. Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool in the tin and then transfer to a wire rack.

Serve with cream - optional
