- Combine flour, butter, 100g of the sugar and salt in a bowl. Add 3/4 of the wine and mix till well combined and smooth. Add more wine if the mixture is dry and crumbly. Shape into a ball, flatten, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Peel apples and cut in half. Remove core and place into a bowl with cold water and lemon juice to prevent browning.
- Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a rimmed baking tray with butter and dust with flour.
- Roll out pastry mixture into a rectangle slightly larger than the baking tray. Transfer pastry to the baking tray and press some of the it up the rimmed sides to make an edge. Pierce all over with a fork.
- Place apple halves cut-side down on a cutting board. Make several parallel cuts without cutting all the way through the apple. Evenly distribute apples over the pastry. Sprinkle evenly with 3 tablespoons cinnamon sugar.
- Bake in the preheated oven until apples start to lightly brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
- Combine eggs, the remaining sugar, vanilla sugar, and lemon zest in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until very foamy, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Beat cream in a chilled glass or metal bowl with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into the egg mixture.
- Remove cake from the oven and reduce temperature to 165 C / Gas 3-4. Pour egg-cream mixture over the apples and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar.
- Bake until cream topping is golden brown, 10 to 15 further minutes.

Top 10 red cabbage recipes
A head of seasonal cabbage goes a long way. Learn how to prepare and cook red cabbage with one of our delicious recipes.
Red cabbage is healthy, thrifty and robust, so why it remains such an underrated ingredient is beyond us. Part of the problem may be that the tightly-packed sphere yields so many layers it’s sometimes hard to know how to use up a whole one. We’ve put together some red cabbage recipe ideas for you, from festive side dishes to standalone meals.
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this tasty main dish (the exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below):
Olive oil spray: I love olive oil and use it frequently in my cooking. But if you worry about its relatively low smoke point, you can use avocado oil instead.
Kosher salt and black pepper: If using fine salt, you might want to reduce the amount you use, or the roast could end up too salty.
Spices: Garlic powder, paprika, dried sage, dried thyme. Make sure they are fresh! A stale spice can easily ruin a dish.
Boneless pork shoulder: I usually pick a 3-lb. one. I get them either at Whole Foods or at my local supermarket.

La Belle Day Off.
My family's annual day trip to France with friends meant I wasn't at the tea rooms yesterday when the half-term world descended. And ordered paninis. Hurray. And had to wait for them. Not such a huge hurray . The stash of cake was rapidly reduced so I'll be baking again tomorrow - cobweb cakes for the kids and lemon drizzle. I may even have to dust off my Victoria Sponge recipe at this rate.
I'm on a countdown to Sunday when we close our doors for Winter.
