Apple & Almond Ring Cake

About this recipe: I love using my bundt tin, so always trying to make up a cake recipe to use it. This one turned out quite well. I have found cinnamon & brown sugar a must when using apple - these seem to complement each other quite well!❤❤

  • 100g ground almonds
  • 150g Self -Raising Flour
  • 180g Margarine (I use flora buttery) at room temp
  • 100g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 40g Soft brown/dark brown sugar( you can use whichever is to your taste))
  • 3 eggs at room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2-3 tbsp milk (at room temp)
  • 2-3 apples( I used British gala apples)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon ( more if you prefer)
  • Flaked almonds


  1. Pre-heat oven- gas mark 170°c Fan. Adjust oven shelf to just above centre.
  2. Grease & flour a non- stick bundt ring tin - approx. 22cm across or spray with cooking spray
  3. Core, peel & chop apples- mix with cinnamon & place some on the bottom of the greased tin, sprinkle with some flaked almonds(optional)
  4. Beat margarine & both sugars until creamy & smooth - U may need to break up lumps of brown sugar if using
  5. Add the vanilla & beat
  6. Add eggs one at a time & beat well after each- U can add a little flour if looks like 'curdling'.
  7. Mix flour & ground almonds together- then mix half into egg/marg/sugar mix with a tbsp of milk- combine, then repeat with the rest of the flour & milk. I have found about 3 tbsp may be needed for a slow dropping consistency of the cake mix.
  8. Gently fold in the rest of the chopped apples.
  9. Spoon into tin- evenly- then gently smooth the top with a small spatula or knife.
  10. Bang tin gently on counter before putting in oven( helps to expel air bubbles , which I have found tends to help with a more level cake)
  11. Bake 30-35mins, but as all ovens vary- it may take 35-40mins, do check after 35mins, if still not done but is browning too much, a piece of tin foil over the tin, I usually cut a disc that fits just on the inside of rim.
  12. Cake is done when a skewer comes out clean- cool in tin 10mins, put a piece of greaseproof onto a cooling rack- overturn onto cake tin- then flip all of it over, gently shake- it should come out easily!
  13. Make some glace icing until it coats the back of a teaspoon, drizzle however you like, over the warm cake & sprinkle with flaked almonds.


I made this up, so if any mistakes or omissions please let me know in your reviews or via Hope someone will make it & let me know how it turned out. I think this recipe could be tweaked to different taste & flavours- I'll have to try some tweaks & publish if it turns out ok!😜😜😜😜😜 I also used my Kenwood One machine to make these- took 30mins to mix
