rye apple cake

Rye apple cake

Ed: We have been asked to state that

"Recipe taken from The Guardian and written by Dan Lepard:"

I've made this a couple of times, it successfully 'vegan-ises': replace milk with soy milk, butter with Stork, egg with No Egg.  The rye flour gives it a nice dark, grown-up flavour, not too sweet.

One that my BF requests I make again <3

1 med apple (125-150g)
Ground cinnamon, for dusting
75g flaked almonds
150g rye flour
2tsp baking powder
75g unsalted butter
50g golden syrup
100g dk muscovado sugar
75ml milk
1 egg
Demerera (or soft brown) sugar

Line a 2lb loaf tin.

Preheat oven to 170c.

Peel & core the apple, cut into dice and toss in cinnamon until lightly coated.

Grind 50g of the almonds (set aside the rest for later), combine with the flour & baking powder.

In a small saucepan, over a gentle flame, heat the butter w/ the golden syrup & muscovado sugar until smooth and the sugar has dissolved.  

Remove from the heat, beat in the milk and egg, then stir in the dry ingredients. 

Fold this through the cinnamon-coated apple pieces, then scrape into the tin. 

Sprinkle the top w/ the remaining flaked almonds & a light dusting of sugar. Bake for 35-40 mins.

I finally got around to making this last night - it's utterly wonderful! The almonds and sugar on the top just give it a nice crunch too. I added some sultanas as well, just because. Lovely - thanks for posting this.
