- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
- Generous 1 cup light brown sugar
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- Scan 1 2/3 cups self-rising flour
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
- ½ cup golden raisins
- 3 small apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp. honey, warmed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch round springform cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. Place butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs. Sift the flour, cinnamon and nutmeg into the batter and fold in gently using a metal spoon. Fold in the golden raisins. Spoon half the batter into the prepared pan and level the surface. Scatter over half the sliced apples. Spoon over the rest of the cake mixture and gently level the surface. Arrange the rest of the apple slices over the top. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 ¼ hours until risen, golden brown and firm to the touch. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Brush the top with the warmed honey and let cool completely.
