  • 3 medium to large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups (120g) yellow cornmea

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups (355ml) buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup (75g) butter, melted
  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Put the apples, tablespoon of sugar and lemon juice in a small pot over medium heat for a just a few minutes to slightly soften them, then remove from heat. Do not let them overcook.
  • Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Place the beaten eggs, melted butter and buttermilk in a large measuring jug, stir well and pour into the dry ingredients. Stir again until everything is combined.
  • Pour one third of the batter into a buttered loaf tin, then layer half of the apples on top.
  • Put another third of the batter on top of the apples, and repeat another layer with the remaining apples, and finish with the rest of the batter.
  • Place the loaf tin in the centre of the preheated oven and make for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the loaf cake, comes out clean. Sprinkle with a little sugar and allow to cool in pan about 30 minutes, then remove and place on a cooling rack.
  • Serve warm.
