Matrimony Cake - South East Version

Pastries - Sweet Double Crust Pies
South East

Double-crust apple pie, the filling enhanced with breadcrumbs, with sweet spices, or with honey, dried fruit etc.

The original source of this receipt isn't known. Can you help?


Take a shallow tin and line with pastry. Core about 4 large sour apples and cut them in thin rings and lay on pastry, jut overlapping each other. Fill the core holes with currants. Sprinkle sugar over all and a pinch of ground nutmeg (my mother puts a slice of lemon in the middle of the cake). Then cover with a thin layer of pastry. Bake in a hot oven and cut in fingers and eat hot for tea with Devonshire cream.
