This is an apple version of the plum and almond cake I posted recently. It’s such an obvious combination and a very special friend put in a request for apple so it had to be done! 🙂
You will need:
125g unrefined Raw sugar or Coconut palm sugar
200g Ground almonds
100 ml Almond oil (you can use mild Olive oil if you prefer
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
1/8 tsp Almond extract (if you have it)
Bramley apple (1 large)
Ground cinnamon (for dusting)
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C and line and grease a 20cm cake tin – if you have a springform tin then use that as it makes it easier to get it out without it breaking. If not a loose bottom tin is the best option.
Add the oil and sugar to a bowl and use a hand mixer to beat together (you can do it by hand with a fork if not). Beat in the eggs one at a time. Then add in the extracts and mix well. Fold in the ground almonds with a metal spoon. Once mixed pour in to the tin.
Peel and core the apple and cut into slices, and place in to the batter. Push them down a little bit so they’re well bedded in there. Sprinkle the top with ground cinnamon.
Let it cool for 10 minutes in the tin and then carefully remove it and allow it to cool on a wire rack. Slice and enjoy! 🙂
