Dorset apple, pumpkin and caramel cake – PAP blog Recipie

Hey guys ,


I have been requested to share the recipie for the dorset apple cake I made a few weeks ago. I shared a picture of it on Instagram and had over 20 likes !  I have to apologise for how long it took me to write a new blog post!  (I have some more posts in the pipeline , so please hang tight! They are *imminently* on their way! ).



Dorset apple, pumpkin and caramel cake

(Serves 8 approx)


You will need:

  • 1 large Bramley apple
  • 225g  self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice   (nutmeg and cinnamon are good choices!)
  • 125g  cold butter, diced
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs (beaten)


 To make the cake :

1.   Preheat the oven to 190’C (gas mark 5) and lightly grease a medium sized cake tin.  Peel the apple ,  cut it into          quarters and remove the core.  Reserve one of the quarters and dice the rest.


2.   Sift the flour , baking powder and mixed spice into a large bowl.  Rub in the diced butter to form fine     breadcrumbs.


3.   Stir in the diced apple , sugar , and pumpkin puree , then gradually stir in the beaten eggs to form a stiff mixture.   Spoon into the prepared tin and level the surface with the back of a spoon.  Thinly slice the reserved apple quarter and arrange on top of the cake.



4.   Bake for 30-40mins , until its springy to touch.  Leave in the tin to cool for 10 minutes.  Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely ,then slice and serve drizzled in caramel sauce!
