  • 150g butter, softened, plus extra for the tin
  • 3 eating apples, peeled and cored
  • 150g light brown soft sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs


  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Butter a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin and line with baking parchment. Thinly slice one of the apples into 16. Arrange in a circle around the base of the tin.

  2. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla together until light and fluffy using an electric whisk. Mix in the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, cinnamon and eggs until combined. Grate the remaining apples into the batter, then fold in. Carefully spoon the batter over the apple slices and gently smooth the surface using the back of the spoon. Bake for 45 mins until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 20 mins. Invert onto a serving plate so that the apple slices are on top. Will keep in an airtight container for three days.
