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 .

  1. 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 πŸ™‚

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

    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?
