Chocolate Apple Dessert

Every Rosh Hashonah, I try to create a variation on the traditional apple cake to excite the family.

Method

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C/ 350 F/ Gas mark 4.

2. Line and grease a 22 cm/ 9 inch loose base cake tin.

3. Put the eggs, icing sugar and vanilla sugar in a mixing bowl and whisk together.

4. Stir in the grated apple, raisins, flour, baking powder and nuts.

5. Bake for 1 hour or until firm in the centre and golden brown.

6. Let it cool for 30 minutes before adding the topping.

7. Melt the chocolate and margarine over a double-boiler.

8. Spread the jam over the top of the cake and then pour over the chocolate mixture.

9. Leave to set until ready to serve.
