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!


Serves: 8 

  • 500g puff pastry
  • 400g applesauce
  • 1 charm, wrapped in greaseproof paper
  • 1 egg yolk

  3. Spread the applesauce over the centre of the pastry, leaving 4 cm the edge uncovered. If you want, insert a charm into the applesauce.
  4. Place the second circle of dough onto the first one. Press the edges to seal. Brush with egg yolk.
