Nottingham’s British Bake off star appeared on the 6:30 show last night with a delicious Dorset apple cake.
Here is the recipe for Jordan’s Dorset Apple Cake featured on the 6:30 show.
125g Caster sugar
75g Self-raising flour
75g Ground almonds
For the apples:
4-5 Eating apples
1 Heaped tbsp Granulated Sugar
1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 9″ spring-form pan.
Peel and core the apples, cut them into quarters and then slice each quarter in to about three pieces. You don’t need to be too precise.
Heat the butter and sugar in a frying pan and then gently fry the apples. When they are nearly tender and starting to caramelise, add the cinnamon and take off the heat. Allow to cool completely.
Beat the butter and sugar together in an electric whisk until fluffy.
Add the eggs, then the flour, then the almonds. Fold in the cooled apples.
Scrape into the tin, smooth over the surface.
Bake for 40-45 minutes (until a skewer comes out clean). Leave for 20 minutes before removing from the tin and leaving to cool.
Top with caramel sauce and caster sugar.
