I found this recipe in my collection of clippings from old magazines. In those days when the internet was not even a word, collecting clippings and buying cookbooks were the way to go. First thing that attracts, of course, is the photograph_the apples were arranged so beautifully on top of the cake. I also happen to love cooking with apples as the smell and taste brings a warm feeling on cold days.
This cake is actually very simple to make, and has lemon as the background flavour instead of the usual spice. My children asked for some vanilla custard to go with it. They were right, it tasted so good together.
