Apple Traybake with Raisins & Almonds

After lovely few summery days we are now back to black here in Ireland so one big warming cake is a necessity.I was in the mood for something extra sweet & fruity so I came up with this traybake to meet the needs:)

400 g flour
250 g butter,at room temperature
125 g sugar
1 egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp  baking powder

500g-800g apples,cored & chopped
125 g sugar
100 g raisins
50 g chopped almonds(you can also use hazelnuts instead)
1 tbsp brandy( optional :) )
4 tbsp raspberry jam

With a wooden spoon beat the butter & the sugar together until smooth.
Add egg,stir in the flour mixed with baking powder & cinnamon.
Using your hands knead the mix together.Take a small bit of the dough for the hearts to decorate the cake.
Butter and line a 20 x 30cm baking tray with baking paper.
Press the dough over the baking tray.
Spread with raspberry jam.
For the filling mix all ingredients together & scatter over the base.

For the hearts roll out the rest of the dough to about 1/2 cm thick. Cut out your shapes & arrange over the cake.

Bake at the 220C for 30-40 min,until golden brown.
