Bramley Apple and 'Wild Spice' Cake - By Richard Hughes

The cake will be quite wet, indeed that’s why we call it a pudding cake. As it stands the fruit will release more juice, and so it keeps very well, if you can resist it!

250g muscovado sugar
250g butter
2 teaspoons mixed spice
250g wholemeal flour
2 tsp baking powder
3 eggs                                                                                                                      125ml Wild  Spice ale
400g chopped Bramley apples (peeled and cored)

  • Cream together the butter, spice and sugar.
  • Sift together the baking powder and the flour.
  • Alternately add the beaten egg and the flour.
  • Fold in the fruit.
  • Add the ale
  • Line an 8 inch spring loaded cake tin with buttered greaseproof paper.
  • Place the mixture in the tin.
  • Bake for 60 minutes at Gas Mark 4/180°C.
