    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!❤❤

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Method

    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.

    Tip

    I made this up, so if any mistakes or omissions please let me know in your reviews or via debsmth9@hotmail.com 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
