I promised this recipe to Sue after she had Not Enjoyed the version of this on a Co-op recipe card. I have been making this for years, and it is divine. It's even more divine cold, next day, with ice cream! Sorry - no picture as I've not made it recently (OH deems it in the "fattening" category . . .)
APPLE DAPPY (Serves 6)
8 oz (225g) S-R flour
2 oz (50 g) margarine
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 pint (150 ml) milk
1 tblspn Demerara sugar
1/2 level tsp. cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves or mixed spice
2 good-size apples (I use cookers, but dessert will do)
1 (washed) lemon or a little lemon essence
1 tblspon golden syrup
1/2 oz (15g) margarine
4 oz (100g) sugar
7 fl. oz (200 ml) water
Make syrup first. Peel fine strips of lemon rind and squeeze lemon. Put rind, juice and all other syrup ingredients into a pan and stir over a gentle heat until sugar is dissolved. Leave to cool.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and rub in marg. Mix to dough with milk. Roll into 8" x 5" x 1/4" thick rectangle on floured board. (20 x 13cm x 7 mm thick).
Peel, core and chop apples and spread on pastry. Mix sugar and spice together and spribkle over apple. Roll up pastry and apple like a swiss roll. Then cut into slices about 1" (2.5 cm) thick.
Grease an overproof dish and lay slices flat on it. Remove lemon rind from syrup and pour over the apple slices. Bake in a moderately hot oven, Gas6, 375 deg. F, 190 deg. C for about 30 mins.
Serve with cream or custard.
