What you'll need

500g Bramley apples, peeled and cored

250g butter, softened

150g Whitworths Fine Caster Sugar

100g Whitworths Dark Soft Brown Sugar

4 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

350g self-raising flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 heaped tsp cinnamon

25g Whitworths Crunchy Demerera Sugar

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/gas 4/350°F. Butter and line a rectangular baking tin (approx 27cm x 20cm) with baking paper. Thinly slice the apples and set to one side.

Place the butter and Whitworths Fine Caster Sugar and Whitworths Dark Soft Brown Sugar into a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth for two to three minutes, then add the eggs and vanilla and continue to beat for two minutes. Finally, add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon and beat briefly to combine.

Spread half the mixture into the prepared tin. Arrange half the apples over the top, and then repeat the process. Sprinkle over the Whitworths Crunchy Demerera Sugar.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden and springy to the touch. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then turn out of tin and remove paper. Cut into bars or squares.

Enjoy hot with custard or cold as it is!
