Class 120 Apple & Lemon Sandwich cake

Ingredients Sponge

225g (8oz) Caster sugar

225g (8oz) Self raising flour

225g (8oz) Baking spread straight from fridge

4 Eggs, beaten

1 tsp Baking powder

2 Eating apples, cored & grated

Icing sugar for dusting
 

Ingredients Filling

200g (7oz) Icing sugar, sifted

2 tbsp Milk

100g (3.5 oz) Unsalted butter, softened

3 tbsp Lemon curd

Method

Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease and line two 20cm (8in) loose-bottomed sandwich tins.  Measure all the sponge ingredients except the apple and icing sugar into a large bowl and beat until combined.  Fold the grated apple into the mixture, then divide between the tins and level the tops.  Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden, allow to cool for a few minutes and turn onto a cooling rack. 

Beat the butter until soft.  Add half of the icing sugar and beat until smooth.  Add remaining icing sugar and 1 tbsp milk and beat until creamy.  Add remaining milk if it is too thick.  Lightly swirl in the lemon curd.   Put one cake upside down on a serving plate or cake board.  Spread the lemon cream on the sponge and place the other cake on top.  Dust the top with icing sugar.
