Best Scottish Apple Cake

Best Scottish Apple Cake.

8 oz Self Raising flour
4 oz Butter
2 oz Caster sugar
4 Cooking apples
1 Egg, beaten
Little milk
Melted butter for glazing
Ground cloves or cinnamon
Caster sugar for dusting

Set oven to 425 Degrees F 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 25-30 minutes and serve warm. Serves 4.
