This cake uses ground almonds to replace the flour usually found in cakes. Be careful when preparing the almonds in a food processor because electric machines bring out the oil in nuts. Whizz a handful at a time.

A moist apple cake that is perfectly spiced with cinnamon. There's no dairy in this recipe. Use a mild-flavoured vegetable oil for best results, such as rapeseed or sunflower. The oil is what helps to keep this cake deliciously moist.

We traditionally bake honey cakes for the Jewish New Year. I usually find them too dry or too sweet. This honey-drenched cake is moist and delicious. It improves with age, so prepare it a day or two before serving.
