Traditional Guernsey Gâche Melée

Gâche melée is a heavy and dense Guernsey cake that is traditionally prepared with a combination of apples, flour, sugar, milk, salt, and suet (instead of butter).

When baked, it is recommended to serve the cake cut into squares, and it should ideally be accompanied by a dollop of Guernsey cream or a scoop of ice cream on the side.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

225g plain flour

114 g Guernsey Butter

680g apples (peeled, cored and chopped)

225g demarara sugar

1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of mixed spice

1/2 teacup of water

1 teaspoon salt

1 free range egg

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE TRADITIONAL GUERNSEY GÂCHE MELÉE

Heat oven to 150°C. Rub the butter into the flour until like breadcrumbs. Add all other dry ingredients, apple and mix well. Add egg and water and again mix well. Place in a 7 inch (18cm) square tin.

Sprinkle the 2 tbsp sugar on top prior to cooking( this makes a crunchier top.). Place in oven and bake for 2 hours until golden brown. Serve with ice cream.
