Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees.  Grease a one quart ovenproof dish with butter.
  2. Peel and core the apples and slice thinly.  Place in the prepared dish and sprinkle the turbinado sugar, nutmeg, and lemon zest over them.  Add 1 tbsp. of water.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and superfine sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the egg gradually, beating well.  Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl and fold in the mixture.  Add a splash of milk – enough to give a dropping consistency. Spread this mixture over the apples. (Don’t worry if you aren’t able to cover the whole base.
  4. Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes, until the sponge mixture is golden and firm to the touch in the center  
  5. Spring with superfine sugar and serve with custard or cream. (I prefer non fat plain yoghurt to keep the fat count down.)
Recipe Notes

*you can make superfine sugar by giving table sugar a quick pulse or two in your food processor, and then measure for the recipe.
