  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until pale and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time and beat until fully combined.
  4. Sift in the flour, add the milk and mix until well combined
  5. Spoon the mixture into the tin. Cut the apple into slices and lay on top with the strawberries.
  6. To make the crumble topping, rub together the flour, butter and brown sugar until thick breadcrumbs form. Sprinkle over the top of the fruit.
  7. Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 10 mins or until a skewer comes out clean, then remove from oven and cool for 10 mins in the tin before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

This is one of the nicest cakes I have tried, as I love fruit in cakes and this is a really moist one with a crumble top that gives a crunchy finish.

A friend suggested it would be nice with rhubarb instead of apple. Thank you Sue x
