Rachel Allen’s Dutch Apple Cake

I’ve had a hankering for apple pies and tarts since our last visit to Ireland in November last year.   We were treated to home-made apple desserts, ripe from the garden variety, served with hot custard and cold vanilla ice cream.  Once we were back in London, I dreamed about them for days, I kid you not.  In fact, Hubby made several trips to M&S for their apple pie and custard.

We were watching Rachel Allen on telly last week and saw her make a lovely crumble topped cake, which got me flicking through her book ‘Bake’.   I found an easy recipe for a Dutch apple cake, achievable even with the little ankle-biter begging for play-doh every 2 minutes.   I used a 9″ springform tin and the cake turned out beautifully.  No cream needed, but pots of tea is advisable.
