This simple apple shortcake recipe comes from my grandmother's handwritten recipe book. My grandmother grew up on a farm, and then moved to my grandfather's farm when they married in the 1950s. I imagine she made this shortcake many times for the farm staff!
Like most of our everyday farm baking recipes, this makes a delicious but fairly plain sweet to
enjoy after lunch or on a tea break. It's not a decadent meal of a slice like you find in most cafes these days!
Simple Apple Shortcake
1½ tsp baking powder
Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the dough is lightly golden and smells cooked. Leave to cool in the tin before dusting with icing sugar and cutting into squares, bars or, if you used a round cake tin, wedges.
