Readers Recipe: Cake for catholic tastes
Saturday 26 March 1994
He then offers a rough recipe from those days for a sweet walnut bread called Brotherly Love. 'Roll out the (standard white) dough to a rectangle about 8in by 10in and less than 1/2 in thick. Spread over this 2oz of demerara or Barbados sugar, dot it with small pieces of butter (use 2oz) and walnuts (2oz). Now roll it up like a swiss roll. Make sure the ends are well sealed and the long seam is on top. Score it with diagonal slits and brush with egg or milk. Bake in a hot oven for 1 hour.'
Mr Gilman will receive a bottle of 1989 Bukkuram de Bartoli, a figgy tasting Sicilian muscat, as will Marilyn Sarmiento of St Albans, Hertfordshire, who submitted another dish with a clerical connection. She says this recipe for apple cake was 'clipped from the Catholic Chronicle, the weekly newspaper of the Roman Catholic diocese of Toledo, Ohio, and a wonderful source of farm women's recipes'.
Ozark Mountain Raw Apple Cake
Ingredients: 6oz (170g) butter, melted
6oz (170g) caster sugar
2 large, fresh eggs, separated
1tsp baking soda
12oz (340g) soft white cake flour
12oz (340g) apples, cored and diced
2tsp vanilla essence
Preparation: Preheat oven to 350F/ 180C/gas 4. Grease a baking tin and dust with flour, shaking off excess. In a small bowl, blend egg yolks, vanilla and (melted but cooled) butter. In a large bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and sugar - twice. Stir in butter- egg mixture. You will have a dry, unwieldy batter. In a clean, dry bowl, whisk egg whites with another pinch of sugar, until they form soft peaks. Stir apples into the batter, followed, gently, by egg whites. Decant into baking tin, level off and bake for 40-50 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.
