This recipe originates from a 50 year old recipe book that my house mate has; its called practical cookery.
I took only twenty minutes with this recipe so don’t be discouraged by its fancy name. You just need to prepare the shortcake and the apples and you’re done!
These are the things you need:
Nine inch pan
3 Sour Apples
6 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Sugar
3 Tsp Baking Powder
2 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cinnamon Powder
1 Tbsp Sugar
My house mate helped me peel , core and quarter the apples while I prepared the shortcake base for the apples.
First, you sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large bowl as shown above.
Then you proceed to add in the butter which you have to cut into little pieces before you add them in separately.
Mix the dry ingredients and the butter together until it looks similar to what I have in this picture below.
Then, you shape it into a ball as shown
And roll it out till its about half-inch thick
Then you place it on a baking pan and press it along the sides and the bottom of the pan and place the apples atop the dough. You also mix the sugar with the cinammon powder and sprinkle it over the apples and that’s about it!
You then just have to bake it in the oven for about 25-30 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius; till it turns a beautiful golden brown.
You then place it on a plate and serve it with a scoop of ice-cream, I used toffee ice cream and it was absolutely divine.
You can also serve the dessert with some cinnamon powder sprinkled over it! Enjoy!
