Honey and Apple Tea Cakes

At Harvest Launceston the apples are delicious at this time of the year.  Why not team some up with some Tasmanian Honey and locally-made vanilla bean ice cream for this perfect Spring dessert!

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan-forced). Grease an 8-hole, 3/4-cup capacity mini loaf pan.
  • Step 2
    Using an electric mixer, beat butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add honey and beat to combine. Fold in flour until combined. Fill prepared pans, smoothing top with a spatula.
  • Step 3
    Halve, core and peel apples. With cut-side down, thinly slice apples, not all way through. Arrange apple over batter, cut-side down. Sprinkle demerara sugar over apple. Bake for 25-30 mins, until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  • Step 4
    Remove cakes from pan and place on serving plates. Heat extra honey in a microwave until smooth. Drizzle over apple cakes and serve with ice-cream.
