  • ¾ tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Caster Sugar
  • for the cake
  • 4 large Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 165g Almond meal/ground almond
  • 120g Caster sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp Lemon juice
  • flaked almonds for topping
Instructions
  1. Peel, core and chop the apples to cubes. Put them in a saucepan with the lemon juice and sugar and bring the pan to a bubble over a medium heat. Cover the pan and cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes or until the apples are soft enough to mash with a fork (stirring occasionally to prevent apples bottom from burning)。 Leave to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 deg C; line a small loaf pan all sides up with parchment paper.
  3. Put the cooled cooked apples in the processor and blend smooth. Add eggs, almond meal, sugar and lemon juice and blend well. Pour and scrape, with a rubber spatula for ease, into the prepared loaf pan, sprinkle the flaked almonds on top, and bake for about 45 minutes or skewer inserted into cake comes out clean.
  4. Leave cake in pan for about 5 minutes and move to cool on wire rack.
  5. This cake is best served slightly warm, though still good cold.recipe adapted from here
