About this recipe:This cake is traditionally made with almond frangipane but this is a much quicker version that uses apple sauce. It's traditional to insert a charm, such as a penny or a gold ring, and whoever finds it will get good luck but it's completely optional!
500g puff pastry
1 charm, wrapped in greaseproof paper

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper or parchment.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry until 5 mm thick. Cut out two large circles of dough (about 24cm in diameter). Place one circle of dough onto the lined baking tray.
Spread the applesauce over the centre of the pastry, leaving 4 cm the edge uncovered. If you want, insert a charm into the applesauce.
Place the second circle of dough onto the first one. Press the edges to seal. Brush with egg yolk.
Cut a small hole in the centre of the cake and decorate the top of the cake as you like with a knife. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm.
