  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 140g butter, melted

  • Flaked almonds

Method

Additional Equipment: 20cm springform pan with a removable base.

Preheat the oven to 160°C, 140°C Fan, 325°F, Gas 3. Line the cake tin with a circle of bakewell/parchment paper on the base. Butter and flour the sides of the cake tin and shake out the excess.

Mix the sugar, flour, ground almonds and baking powder together in a bowl. Add the beaten eggs and melted butter and stir well.

Put one third of the batter into the cake tin. Place a layer of apples over the batter and then spoon the rest of the batter on top. Sprinkle the surface with flaked almonds. Bake in the oven for about 50-55 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Turn out onto a wire tray and leave to cool. This is delicious served as a cake with afternoon tea, or with a good dollop of cream for dessert.
