Apple Charlotte Recipe

Apple Charlotte Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4-6

450 g/1 lb cooking (tart) apples, peeled, cored and sliced
Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup caster (superfine) sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
10 slices of white bread, crusts removed

75 g/3 oz butter or margarine, melted
Cream, to serve

Method :

Place the apples, lemon rind and juice and sugar in a saucepan and simmer for about 10-15 minutes to a thick puree, then leave to cool. Cut one bread slice into a round to fit the bottom of a greased 1.2 liter/2 pt/5 cup soufflé dish. Dip the bread in the melted butter or margarine and lay it in the dish. Cut another round to fit the top of the dish and keep it aside. Dip the remaining slices in the butter or margarine and use to line the sides of the dish, tilling any gaps with small pieces of bread. Spoon in the puree and cover with the reserved bread, dipped in butter or margarine. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4 for 40 minutes until golden. Sprinkle with sugar and serve with cream.
