Tea Time Block from Ati

My Tea Time Treats Block arrived today, from Ati in The Nederlands.

Ati sent the recipe for a Dutch Apple Cake and it looked so good I made it for tea tonight. There is some left over for afternoon tea tomorrow. LOL
I might even freeze some. DH and I can assure you that it tastes good.
In case anyone would like to try it, here's the recipe

360g self-raising flour
180g sugar
210g butter
1 egg beaten
a pinch of salt
1 kilogram of apples
50g raisins
cinnamon - to suit
sugar - to suit
Make a dough from the flour, sugar, butter and half the beaten egg
Make a bottom in the form( 10" tin) and a wall about 2" high
Keep some of the dough for the top latticing.
Peel and chop the apples, dress sugar, cinnamon and 1 tablespoon custard powder and the raisins in it. Mix well
Put the filling in the form
Make a pattern of strips from the rest of the dough. Brush the rest of the egg over the stripes of the dough.

Bake about 1 hour and 15 minutes at 175 oC (approx 340 oF)

Maureen, it does look yummy!!!! And I do so enjoy apple based cakes, especially this time of the year. Snuggle up under a handmade quilt with a good book, a slice of cake and a hot cup of tea......

Maureen the cake looks very good. I am happy you like it. You can freeze it as well and have allways something delicious for unexpected guests.
I have made it often for the sunday's when my children were still at home.

This recipe looks wonderful, the photo looks yummy. Why wasn't I invited? Oh yeah, you didn't know me then...and I am half a globe away. Speaking of which, I have software that will convert the metric measurements for me, but what is custard-powder?
