Kim, from The Little Black Cow blog, requested this recipe and with the hacker and my hayfever driving me nuts I haven't typed it up till now. At least it's in time for everyone to try it out on the weekend :).
There are photos here if you want to see what it looks like.
German Apple Cake
60g butter; 1/3 cup sifted sugar; 1 egg; 1 cup self-raising flour, sifted; ¼ cup milk; 4 medium apples, peeled quartered and cored; juice of1 lemon; sugar; cinnamon
Cream butter with sugar. Add egg and beat well. Add ½ flour and beat to combine. Add milk and remaining flour alternately (this will make a thick mixture). Spread mixture over bottom of greased 23cm (9”) springform pan. Cut quartered apples into thin slices but not all the way through. As you are preparing apples put them in a bowl and squeeze over lemon juice to keep them from going brown. Place drained apples, cored side down, on cake. Bake in a preheated moderate oven (180ºC/350ºF) for 1 hour. While cake is still warm sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
