Somerset Apple Cake

Somerset apple often you heard of this cake? As apple cake is pretty much a common cake to most of us, so what is the different between Somerset apple cake! Somerset apple cake is actually originated from a place called Somerset in England where they normally used apple juice or apple cider in their cake mixed. Other than that the classic English apple cake is usually no need much whisking. The very common way of making this cake is by rubbing butter with flour and then stir in wet ingredients to combine, just like making the English scone or welsh cakeSo that the cake can only captured just enough moisture to serve with ice-cream or fresh cream. Sounds incredible, isn't it? haha....

So, here we go.
Ingredients :
300gm   all purpose flour
2 tspn   baking powder
160gm   sugar
pinch of salt
1 tspn  cinnamon powder
200gm   butter

3 eggs, beaten
60ml    apple cider (I used Kefir drinks)
2 apples,  diced
1/2 cup  raisins

Method :
(1) combine all ingredients (A) into a big bowl and rub butter till well combine.
(2) then stir ingredients (B) into (A) and mix well.
(3) pour batter to a 9" greased tray and bake at preheated oven 175-180'C for about 50-60 mins.

I baked mine at 185'C for the first 30 mins then 180'-175'C the following. I like the burnt looking crust of the cake.
The texture of this cake tastes as beautiful as the common apple cake. I think I prefer the crust. It's simply addictive!  Hope you'll love it too.
