The husband and I are off to the 'rents house for Christmas holidays today, so I'm planning to bring a cake! My mother in law is gluten-free, and so I wanted to try and make an almond cake - I searched around for a few recipes, and chopped and changed a few things, and thought I'd share my take on one with apples!
3 chopped apples
Juice of 1 lemon
300g golden caster sugar
325g ground almonds
icing sugar and flaked almonds to sprinkle on top
-In a pan, cook apples with lemon juice and a bit of the sugar. Mash them when they are soft enough, but leaft them a bit lumpy for texture.
-In another bowl mix the eggs, and then add the ground almonds, rest of the sugar and lemon juice, and the apple mash.
-Grease a baking tin and pour in the mixture, sprinkling the flaked almonds on top. Bake for 40 minutes. After cooling, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve!
I haven't actually done this yet, but I'll check back with a picture of how it turns out. It sounds like an easy recipe though!! What could go wrong...?
Oh, I had better buy a baking tin.
[Update: It baked like a dream, and tasted amazing! Definitly going to make this one again!!]
