Apple almond cake
A rustic classic cake, made gluten free and excellent for any occasion. 

3 tart eating apples

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tsp caster sugar

Vegetable oil to grease tin

8 large eggs

325g ground almonds

275g caster sugar

1 tbsp lemon juice

50g flaked almonds

To decorate

1 teaspoon icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4.

Line and grease a 25cm/10 spring form tin.

Peel, core and chop the apples roughly. Using a large sauce pan, add the apples with the lemon juice and sugar and bring to a bubble over a medium heat.

Cover the pan and cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes or until you can mash the apple to a rough puree. Leave to cool.

Using a food processor, blitz the puree with the eggs, ground almonds, caster sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and blitz until everything has a puree texture.

Scrape into the prepared tin, sprinkle the flaked almonds on top, and bake for 45 minutes. Check the cake after 35 minutes –it may be done at this point.

Put on a wire rack to cool slightly, then spring open.

Sprinkle over the icing sugar and serve warm.
