The theme for the best dressed apple competition is book titles and there will be two categories – 3-8 year olds and 8 upwards. Seasonal refreshments will be available and there will be apple juicing outside the hall from 11am – 5pm (bring your own apples and bottles for the juice).

Somerset Apple Cake

Cream together butter and caster sugar. Add 4 large eggs and the self-raising flour alternately. Include the cornflour. Fold the chopped Bramley apples into the mixture. Pour into an 18cm/7inch diameter cake tin. Cut segments from an unpeeled apple and soak in lemon juice. Arrange segments in a circle round the top of the cake and dust with soft brown sugar to make a crusty glaze. Bake at 170C/325F for about an hour and a quarter.
