Quick Apple and Almond Cake

Quick Apple and Almond Cake

Also this weekend realised it had been such a busy week, I had not baked any cake !! Such a crime for the true domestic goddess which I aspire to be . Plenty of apples in the fruit bowl .

So a very very quick cake that could cook in just 15 minutes, think this would actually make a very good breakfast cake if you are into sweet things.

Juicy chunks of apple , scented cinnamon , the almonds mean this cake gets a nice crispy top .

Quick Apple and Almond Cake

110g butter
110g soft brown sugar
110g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
55g of ground almonds

  1. Wow! I wish I could grab a slice… My favorite ingredients in a cake! 🙂

  2. Quick, easy, and fantastically edible – sounds like just my kind of recipe. Yep, I think that’s going to have to go on my ‘must make VERY soon’ list!

  3. I was looking for an Apple recipe this morning – and ended up making some cookies…now just found this typical! Looks yummy, mind you I dodn’t have any almonds so probably couldn’t have made it anyway 🙂

  4. Oooooh yummy! I made it last night (birthday cake) very tasty indeedy, especially served warm with vanilla ice-cream (or custard) 🙂

    You didn’t say what to do with the cinnamon so I just chucked it in with the flour, I guess it could go in the pan with apples instead?

  5. Made this yesterday and it was lovely thanks. My only comment is that it needed much longer cooking than you suggested, almost 30 mins. Or is that just my oven

  6. Outstanding piece. I personally wholly clicked

    . I really shouldn’t produce problems by simply stating this however, your message brought to mind fireplace place that i learned about on a site designed for fireplace place recently.
