We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Our thoughts are with the The Royal Family at this incredibly sad time as we join the nation in mourning the loss of our beloved Sovereign.

May she rest in peace.

Cinnamon sourdough apple cake

Preheat oven to 175C.

Cream together 180g butter and 180g caster sugar until fluffy and white.

Add 3 eggs and mix in.

Add 100g unused sourdough starter...fresh is better but it can be completely flat and still be ok.

Stir in 180g self raising flour.

Put in a greased loaf tin. Sprinkle top with mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped up apples...to taste.( one cooking apple, tablespoon of sugar and teaspoon of cinnamon ) Press the sprinkle gently into the cake mixture...not too far...just enough to connect.

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes...top should be golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.
