Dorset apple cake

This recipe is my version of a Dorset apple cake. Great classic that I gave an update and made it slightly healthier with wholemeal flour.


200g wholemeal self raising flour
50g plain white flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g brown sugar
pinch of salt
100g butter
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamon
1 lemon (juice and zest)
2 medium eggs
5-6 tbsp milk
2 apples
almond flakes

Preheat the oven to 170°C and grease a 20cm baking tin. Sift the flour, spices and baking powder in a bowl. Cut the butter into small cubes and rub in to form breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, salt, lemon juice and zest. Beat the eggs with the milk and add to the mixture. Peel the apples and cut into small pieces. Add as well. Spoon into the tin and sprinkle with almond flakes. Bake for 35-45 min.
