Number of serving: 5

Dry Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups All purpose Un-Bleached Flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons ground almonds (plus a few tablespoons for the pan)

wet ingredients:

3/4 cups brown sugar

1/3 cup flavorless oil

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 cup almond milk

1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract

+ fruit, 4-5 apples sliced thin

1 tablespoon sugar


1/2 cup apricot preserves

2 tablespoons honey (or agave syrup)

1/4 teaspoon cardamom


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl combine dry ingredients and whisk together. Add wet ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Pour into a spring form pan thats been greased or sprayed. Using extra ground almonds sprinkle the pan and roll the almonds around so that they stick to the greased pan.
  • Pour the cake batter into the pan and smooth out. Top the cake with fruit, use sliced apple cheeks, flat side down.
  • Sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon of sugar and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for another 25 minutes. About 45 minutes total.
  • You may have to lower the heat and move the cake around to prevent the almond crust from burning but assure you its well worth the fidgeting.
  • Bake until a toothpick or sharp knife tests clean. Allow to rest at room temperature about 5 minutes.
  • The cake will start to settle away from the edge of the pan. Remove the ring and pour glaze over top once its room temperature.
