Number of serving: 4
50 g / 1.75 oz Butter

175 g / 6.1 oz Sugar, fine

2 medium Eggs

250 g / 8.75 oz Almonds, ground

250 g / 8.75 oz Applesauce

1 medium Orange, finely grated zest

100 g / 3.5 oz  Rice or Quinoa Flour

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

4 medium Apples

2 teaspoons Sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 325 F / 180 C and prepare a 10 inch / 22 cm spring form pan. Get all your ingredients together and lets get started.
  • Cream the soft butter, mix in the sugar and the eggs until light and creamy, then add the ground almonds the apple sauce and the orange zest.
  • Sift the rice flour and the baking powder together and fold into the mixture with a spatula.
  • Peel the apples, cut them in half and remove the core, cut them in fine slice, but keep together.
  • Then pour the batter into the prepared spring form pan and layer the cut apples onto the batter, so they make a nice pattern. Sprinkle with a little bit of sugar.
  • Bake the cake on the middle rack of the preheated oven for about 60 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean.
  • Once the cake comes out of the oven, brush the apples with some warm apricot jelly, that will keep the cake looking shiny and it tastes great.
