Apple Pan Bread

This isn't the prettiest cake but it's a moist, delicious apple cinnamon treat.

Apple mixture:
  • 10 oz. (about 4 large apples) pared, chopped apples (slightly sour apples are better)
  • 1 oz. (1/4 cup) dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
Mix in a saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, until bubbling. Then cover and leave over low heat for just 2 minutes.  Leave to cool.  Apples should still be firm.

Cake batter:
  • 3 oz. (1/2 cup) butter or margarine
  • 4 oz. (1/2 cup) dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 8 oz. plain white flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
Cream butter with sugar until light, add the egg and beat until light and creamy. Sift the flour with the salt and baking powder and add without mixing; add cooled apple mixture and milk, and then mix only enough to blend. Grease an 8" square pan.   Pour into prepared pan, smoothing the top.

  • 2 oz. dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
Mix well together and sprinkle over the top of batter in the pan before putting in oven.

Bake at medium heat (350 F) for about 30 minutes, until a knife or toothpick stuck into the middle comes out clean. Serve hot or cold.
