Dorset Apple Cake

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4

Use a 20cm/8 inch square cake tin.

Grease and line the cake tin. Peel, core and finely chop the apples. Rub the butter into the flour. Stir in the chopped apples, brown sugar and currants. Gradually incorporate the sour cream and make a smooth dough. Turn it into the prepared cake tin and bake for 3/4 hour or until a warm knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Turn the cake out onto a warm dish, split it horizontally and butter the lower layer. Sprinkle it generously with brown sugar, replace the top and sprinkle with caster sugar. Serve immediately.
