Quick Apple Sponge
1 tablespoon honey.
3 firm eating apples, cored and sliced.
3 cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced.
Same weight butter.
Same weight honey or sugar.
Same weight self-raising flour.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Generously smear the sides and bottom of a 9inch silicone mould with butter and add a tablespoon of honey.
Layer the eating apples around the base and top with any remaining pieces of the butter.
Layer with the cooking apple slices, retaining about eight slices.
Whisk the butter and honey until light and fluffy.
Whisk in each egg separately with a teaspoon of flour and then fold in the remaining flour and vanilla extract.
Pour the mix on the top of the apples, thumping the whole cake mould on the work surface a few times so the mix settles amongst some of the apple.
Decorate the top with the remaining slices of apple.
Place on a pre-heated tray at 180C, Gas 4 for 30 minutes.
Cover with a double layer of foil and cook for another 20 minutes.
Switch off the oven and let the cake continue to firm as it cools.
Turn-out upside-down on a plate once cool.
