Winter Wholemeal Apple CakeA wholemeal cake recipe that's wintry to the core, the humble apple is the seasonal bakers’ best friend... - Butter and line a large (900g) cake tin with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6.
- Using an electric mixer, cream together 200g muscovado sugar and 200g soft butter until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time. Add 1tsp vanilla and 150g plain yoghurt and mix well. - In a separate bowl, whisk together 250g flour, 2 tsp baking powder, half tsp salt, half tsp cinnamon and a good grating of nutmeg. Add to the butter mixture and beat just until incorporated. - Grate three unpeeled apples (about 375g) and fold into the cake mixture. Scrape into your prepared cake tin and smooth the top. Peel and slice the remaining apple and arrange on top of the cake. Sprinkle with demerara sugar and bake about 60 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
