Step 1

Cream butter and sugar, until light

Step 2

add in the eggs 1 at a time. With every egg add in a tablespoon of the flour, to prevent the mix splitting.

Step 3

once the eggs are combined, add in the rest of the flour, and mix well

Step 4

Spoon the mix into a baking dish and cook for 20 minutes at 180 degrees.

Step 5

cook the raspberries down with a tablespoon of sugar until jam is formed (strain if pips are a worry!)

Step 6

Make a sugar syrup from 100ml of water and 50g of sugar. Bring to a simmer and then add in the apple slices. Cook for approx 2 minutes, until the apples are almost transparent.

Step 7

once the cake is almost cooked, remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.

Step 8

top the cake with the jam

Step 9

To make apple roses, take a slice of apple and roll into a tube. Add slices around this to form petals. Repeat until you have enough roses to cover the cake.

Step 10

return to the oven for 10 minutes. Remove and serve with cream.
