Apple And Cherry Slice

 

This is another one of those recipes where you would most likely have all the ingredients in the pantry. If you don't happen to have sliced almonds in the cupboard then omit them. The recipes will still be fine. By the way, it doesn't matter what type of apple you use

Ingredients:

2 apples cored and diced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup glace cherries, chopped
125 gm butter, melted
1 egg
1 and 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bi carbonate of soda

 

Method:

Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Mix first five ingredients together in a bowl. Add the melted butter and stir well. Add remainder of ingredients and stir again.

Pour into greased slice tin measuring about 18 cm x 28 cm (7' x 11"). Cook at 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) for 25 - 30 minutes. Put aside till cool and then cut into squares.

If liked, you can ice the cake with the following ingredients mixed well together:

1 and 1/4 cups sifted icing mixture
2 teaspoons butter
Few teaspoonfuls of water

The quantity of icing above is sufficient to cover the whole slice. Sometimes I only make about one quarter of the icing quantity and then I simply drizzle it over the slice, as in the photograph.

Serves about 15

 

Notes:

When you cook this slice for the first time you will think the mixture looks way too thick and sticky but that is perfectly fine. The moisture out of the apples seems to work its magic and the slice ends up being very moist.

You can peel the apples if preferred but I leave the skin on to retain more fibre.

I actually do sift the icing mixture in this recipe, otherwise the icing can be a little lumpy. Then you end up wasting more time trying to squish down the lumps.
