Based on this beauty of an apple slice, I thought I’d make some alterations to one of our family favourites. And oh wow! It was so worth it!
2 cups self raising flour – (2 cups is approx 250g flour) 8p
1 cup sugar – 20p (1 cup is approx 225g)
6 nectarines, peeled, cored and diced to 1cm – 48p ASDA
125g butter or margarine 48p/20p (both from Aldi)
1 egg – 15p Aldi free range (lower welfare eggs are cheaper)
1/2 tsp ground cardamom – 1p
Total bake costs £1.12 with marg, or £1.40 with butter. It looks to make around 16 slabs so that makes it between 7p and 9p per piece.
Toss apples with self raising flour and sugar in a medium mixing bowl.
Melt butter in a small saucepan on the stovetop or in a small bowl in the microwave. Stir in egg.
Pour butter and egg into the apple mixture and mix until combined.
Spoon into a greased and lined slice tin.
Bake at 180 C for 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Keeps for about 3 days.
What’s cooking at your house? 😉
