Nana Dennehy’s Autumn Apple Pie

Nonie Dennehy and granddaughter Eimear shared this recipe to celebrate Grandmother’s Day

8 ozs (225 g) butter
8 ozs (225 g) caster sugar
4 eggs, preferably free range
11 oz (300 g) self-raising flour
2 good – size cooking apples

Cream the butter and sugar until light, fluffy and pale in colour. Add each egg, beating well after each addition. Fold in sifted flour, mixing well. Place mixture in a well greased 9 inch (23 cm) round tin.

Peel cooking apples, slice thinly into ¼ inch (5 mm) slices and arrange slightly buried on top of the mixture. Sprinkle with caster sugar (a little dusting through the sieve). Place in a preheated fan oven 170ºC (325ºF/gas mark 3) for 25-30 minutes. Bake until golden brown and springy to touch.
