There's lots to look forward to as we head into Autumn, including aromas from the Corner Shop Chef's kitchen – beef stews, freshly baked cinnamon rolls and of course... this wonderful Apple, Raisin & Cider Loaf.

  1. Soak the raisins in the cider for a few minutes (I like to use Aspinals or Henry Westons, medium dry).
  2. Butter and line a 900g loaf tin with baking paper and preheat your oven to 180°C.
  3. Add the flour and salt to a large bowl, then rub in the butter until well mixed.
  4. Stir in the mixed spice, sugar, apple and the raisin and cider mix.
  5. Lastly, mix in the eggs.
  6. Now pour the mixture into your loaf tin and pop in the oven for between 50-60 minutes. It should be golden brown, and moist but not sloppy inside (check with a knife).
  7. Turn it out onto a wire rack to cool while you make the glaze.
  8. Boil the glaze ingredients in a pan for 3-4 minutes, then brush onto the warm loaf.
  9. When it's cooled slightly, you can slice and serve with or without butter, and maybe accompany it with the remainder of the cider!

Why not experiment with this recipe? Try different cooking apples; currants instead of raisins; tea instead of cider... Give it your own personal twist.
