I don’t often fancy recipes in newspapers but this recipe for a Sliced Apple Cake from the Times – with some minor adjustments – is now my favorite. It’s just as good, or even better, next day – if you have any left.
I always used to grease my cake tins with vegetable oil but then discovered Bake Easy! spray at Lakeland. It works really well but unfortunately they only do the liquid now so this time I had to buy the spray online.
The other indispensable gadget for me is their Cake Tester. The black end turns bright red when the cake – or muffin – is done.
