Apple plate cake

Yield: 1 cake

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Flour; self-rising
4 ounces Butter
2 ounces Caster sugar
4 Cooking apples
1 Egg; beaten
A little milk
Butter; melted for glazing
Ground cloves or cinnamon and caster sugar for dusting

Set oven to 425øF or Mark 7. Grease an 8 inch round flan tin. Rub the butter into the flour in a bowl and stir in the sugar. Peel and grate two of the apples and add to the flour with the beaten egg. Mix well together. If the dough is rather firm add a little milk to soften. Turn the dough on to a floured surface and knead lightly.

Press evenly into the base of the tin. Peel, core and slice the remaining apples and arrange, neatly overlapping, on top of the dough. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a pinch of ground cloves or cinnamon and a little caster sugar. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes and serve warm. ** Scottish Tea-Time Recipes -- Johanna Mathie ** ** ISBN = 1 898435 18 9 ** Posted by The WEE Scot -- Paul MacGregor Submitted By PAUL MACGREGOR On 07-13-95
