2 - 3 Granny Smith apples
butter for greasing
2 teaspoons of sugar
cinnamon for dusting
! tablespoon of butter
1/4 cup of sugar
1 cup of Self Raising flour
1/2 cup of milk (approximately )
Peel, core and thinly slice the apples
Arrange the apples on the bottom of a greased pie dish. The apples can be arranged up the sides a little but allow room at the top for the sponge batter.
Sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and 2 teaspoons of sugar.
In a bowl mix the melted butter, 1/4 cup of sugar, egg, flour and milk until it forms a smooth, slightly runny batter.
Pour the batter over the apples making sure they are all covered.
Bake in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 30 - 40 minutes until golden on top.
Run a knife around the edges to loosen. Place a larger dinner plate on top of the pie dish and flip over so the dessert is now on the dinner plate.
Serve with cream or icecream ( or by itself ).
Serves 5 - 6.

I love pretty much anything with apples in it! Sometimes, I get bags of apples that are discounted simply because they are not "perfect", are marked etc. There's nothing really wrong with them and I stew them up, with cinnamon (Isn't that a match made in heaven!) and freeze them. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Meg:)ReplyDelete
Thanks Wendy, sounds delicious. I'm going to make this tonight. Just a question- you have put ! for tablespoon of butter, is it 1 tablespoon of butter? Thanks againReplyDelete
Yes it's one tablespoon although I don't usually measure it. I just put in a good knob of butter.Delete
I love apple sponge. Granny Smith really give it s good zing.ReplyDelete
A well balanced apple tea cakes needs no cream or ice cream. Best eaten fresh by itself with a cuppa. I remember my grandmother stating that it used to be impolite to serve cake with cream to visitors as the cream was only used to 'hide' the slight staleness of not-so-fresh cake! How times have changed.ReplyDelete
My mum used to make this when I was a child except it wasn't turned over - just left with the sponge on top. We used to have it with custard but I think I'd prefer ice cream now.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the recipe Wendy - very timely as I had 2 apples and a pear begging to be used. Very easy to mix and simple ingredients. Cooking in oven now and will be appreciated as dessert tonight.ReplyDelete
