Rustic Apple Shortcake

Rustic Apple Shortcake


I love this classic Apple shortcake recipe there’s no rolling involved which makes for a quick and easy dessert. Its defiantly a crowd pleaser and family favorite with it’s crunchy, buttery sweet pastry.

Apple Shortcake

170g butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp Baking powder
2 small tins Sliced Apples or 1 large tin
1 tsp Cinnamon
Icing Sugar,to dust (optional)

Preheat oven to 200 C.

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition.

Add flour and baking powder, mix till you have a soft dough.

Press 3/4 of dough into a greased baking dish.  Drain apples then spread over the dough, sprinkle cinnamon on top of apples.

With the left over dough pull pieces off and dot it on top of the apples and cinnamon. Don’t worry if you can still see some of the apples, it doesn’t have to be perfect that’s what gives it that rustic look.

Once you’ve used up all the dough, place it in the oven.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Let it cool before dusting with icing sugar.

Serve warm with cream, Greek yogurt or Homemade Custard.
