Tried and Tested: Apple Cake Success

I wanted to use up some apples and was experimenting with making a new apple cake recipe on the weekend. It was successfull enough to need being made twice on the same weekend!

I think using the ground almonds makes it very moist.
I served it as it was, but I can see a nice vanilla custard, whipped cream or icecream could go down well with it.

Mix well
60 grams of ground almond
190 grams of flour
250 grams of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
4 tablespoons of brown sugar
250 grams of butter
to a 'sandy' consistency

Whisk 4 eggs separately and add to the dry mixture.
Pour the batter into a large cake tin.
Peel, core and chop finely 6 apples and press these well into the batter
Chop roughly 3-4 handfuls of almonds and spread over the apples
Drizzle on top cinnamon and a few spoons of brown sugar
Chop into small squares 25 grams of butter which you scatter on top.
Bake for about 40-45 mins on 190 degrees in the bottom of the oven.
You might need to cover the top half way through to avoid it burning.

PS: This is also my contribution to Sota Saker's November challenge.
