I've been wanting to bake this for ages ever since I researched Dorset bakes when I mistakenly thought that the August Best of British challenge was Dorset. It was in fact Yorkshire and I ended up making a Real Yorkshire Wensleydale & Cranberries and Apple Cake. Well things have come full circle as this month Karen from Lavender and Lovage is hosting Best of British again and it really is Dorset this month! Yay!
The Best of British Challenge was created by Fiona from London Unattached and Karen from Lavender and Lovage which will run for 6 months. Each month, a county or region around the UK is selected. To enter, blog about your interpretation of a recipe or dish from that region. The challenge is sponsored by New World Appliances and there is a prize of a £50 Amazon voucher.
I've entered every challenge since it started except for last month which was London. I am doubly upset as I live in London but unfortunately Sep was a crazy month and I was unable to participate. You can see the round up of amazing London entries here. I'm so excited to join in again this month with this simple and delicious bake from BBC Good Food. I especially like the layer of apples in the middle. The cake was moist, delicious and flavourful - definitely one to bake again and again.
As apples are in season, I'm also entering this to Simple and in Season created by Ren from Fabulicious Food and guest hosted this month by Nazima from Franglaiskitchen.
