Chocolate apple traybake

Makes about 35 slices

Ingredients:

  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 250g (9oz) sugar
  • 200ml (7fl oz) oil
  • 500g (1¾oz) apple, peeled, grated
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 300g (10½oz) plain flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 3-4 tbsp jam
  • 200g (7oz) dark chocolate

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4, then line a 20x30cm (8x12in) baking tin with baking parchment.
  2. Cream the eggs, oil and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix with all the other ingredients, except the jam, until it becomes a smooth batter.
  3. Bake in the oven for about 35 minutes or until cooked – a skewer should come out clean when inserted into the centre.
  4. Remove from the oven and, while it is still warm, spread the jam on the top and cover with melted chocolate. Let it cool.
