  2. In a medium saucepan, cook the apple, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and the juice of half a lemon until soft and fragrant.

  4. Cream the butter and brown sugar with a hand mixer in a large bowl, smoothing out with a wooden spoon if needed.
  5. Sift in the flour, cornflour, baking powder, cinnamon, and ground cloves and mix until incorporated.
  6. Add one of the eggs and mix in. Repeat twice until all three eggs are fully incorporated to make the batter. Fold in the apple mixture.
