East Midlands Food

Just like my mother used to make…

Here’s another recipe from the Ayscoughee Hall Museum project in 2008 to collect memories of food from people who were born in the UK or who moved to Spalding from Latvia, Lithuania and Romania. This one is from Apple Crumb Cake, from Lithuania:

Apple Crumb Cake 

200 g butter, softened

500 g flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon or lemon juice

100 g sugar

3 eggs

8-10 apples

125 g sugar to sweeten the apples

235 ml milk

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 degrees F/Gas Mark 4.

1. Mix butter, eggs, flour and baking powder into crumbs. Divide in half and add the milk to the half to be used on the top.

2. Sprinkle half of the crumbs in the bottom of a 30 x 45 cm cookie sheet pan (baking tray).

3. Shred the apples and toss with the sugar and lemon juice or spice.

4. Put the apples on the dough, then spread the rest of the mixture on the top.

5. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes until brown.
