Butter and flour a 28cm spring-form tin and preheat the oven to 180C.

Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer, add the eggs one at a time.

Gently fold through the flour and lemon zest.

Pour the mixture into the tin and scatter with diced Granny Smith apples.

Cook for 35 minutes or until a wooden skewer, when poked in the centre and removed, is dry.

Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

Dust with icing sugar, a dollop of cream and some freshly sliced raw apple.
