Scottish Recipes - Apple Gingerbread
This is a reasonably simple dish which works well as an after dinner pudding. Equally well it can be served as a cake with a hot beverage (such as tea or coffee)
In a separate pan melt the syrup, butter and Demerara sugar together until dissolved. Again allow this to cool. Add the egg to this mixture and beat well into the following flour mixture
Sift the flour, ginger and cloves into a bowl and make a "well" in the centre. Into this, add the syrup as previously mentioned.
You now have two options. You can EITHER add the stewed apples to the mixture and mix thoroughly OR you can line the base of the tin with the apples and pour the mixture over it.
Whatever option is chosen you should bake for approximately 30 minutes until firm. Leave to stand for a few minutes then turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool. Serving suggestions are a matter of taste, as you can use it as a cake or a pudding served with a little custard or cream
