  • :
  • 1.4kg (3lb) loaf tin, greased and the base and sides lined with baking parchment

Method

  • Heat the oven to 170C, 150C fan, 325F, gas 3. Thinly slice enough apple to cover the top of the cake – around one and a half. Toss in the lemon juice and set aside. Peel, core and roughly chop the remaining apples, and heat in a heavy-based saucepan with 1tbsp water for 5 minutes or until softened slightly. Set aside to cool.

  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Gradually beat in the eggs and vanilla extract until well combined.

  • Fold in the sifted flour mixture, then, when almost combined, fold in the cooked apple and clotted cream until mixed well. Pour into the tin and level with a spatula. Arrange the reserved apple slices evenly on top and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until cooked through. Once the cake has cooled, heat the jam in a small saucepan, then brush all over the top.
