Let's Bake - Dorset Apple Traybake


I've been getting my bake on a lot recently. This can't be good for my bikini body but the treats just taste too good. I've made this recipe before and it was so yummy I thought I would share it with you all. I did a few things differently this time to test them out and found that the original way I made it was better. Therefore I've included a few tips and tricks in here for you to help if you make this yourself.

As usual, the ingredients you need are shown above but you can find a full list along with the original recipe here.

Generally I weigh everything out to start with as I feel like it helps the baking process flow a little bit better but this is completely up to you :)

The first job in this bake is to peel the apples. I used a Bramley apple which works really well with the recipe. 

You are meant to cut it into slices after peeling it which is what I've done below. However last time I cut the apple into small segments. This works a lot better as when you eat the cake you get bigger chunks of apple. Personally I prefer the taste that way, but if you wish you can slice it how I've done below.


Pop your apple into a bowl and pour some lemon juice over the top to stop the apples from going brown.

Honestly, this doesn't seem to work. They still go brown anyways but I wouldn't worry. It still tastes just the same.

Next pop all the other ingredients into a bowl. All you have to do now is mix to make the cake mixture.

When everything is blended together it should look a little something like this. I like to use a wooden spoon but I can imagine an electric whisk being easier if you don't want to put in the elbow grease.

Now it's time to line your tray and layer up the cake. Start with a layer of cake batter and then put a layer of apple, then just repeat this until everything is used up. Normally I get two layers of each.

Sprinkle your traybake with some Demerara sugar and then pop it into the over on 180 fan for around 45-50 mins, until golden brown.

And voila. It should end up looking something like this. I admit mine definitely looks home made but I feel like that's part of its charm. I'm not trying to be perfect. I like that it looks rustic and it sure does taste amazing.

If you give this recipe a go yourself, please tweet me a picture @edgeofbeauty7. I'd love to see it. And if you have any recommendations for recipes you think I should try, please leave them in the comments below :)
