Witch Apple Cake

Witch Apple Cake
This dish earned a Hollywood Handshake on The Great British Baking Show ™

Voice-Over:  "After failing to impress with flavour last week, Syabira plans to wow with a cake inspired by her favorite Malaysian ingredient, asam boi, and also chilli." 

Syabira: "I'm actually trying to bring the flavors together." 

Voice-over: "Syabira will spread sour plum and chili, cream cheese icing and bramley apple crumble between layers of apple sponge to create a giant apple shaped cake.

Paul Hollywood: "I'm not sure about the face. It's sort of gone out all over the place, isn't it?" 

Prue Leith: "I love the face. I mean, for heaven's sake, it's a witch. Of course she can be crooked." 

Syabira: "This is my favorite snack of apples, sour plum and chili." 

Prue leith: "I love it. Really powerful flavors. Sour plum is perfect. That cake is beautiful. And it's so light." 

Paul Hollywood: "I was about to say that I didn't get the chilli, but it's just come in. I think you deserve a handshake. Chili is the thing that gets me. It's a real triumph. Flavour's back."
