Apple Almond Cake | with step by step photos and video. A delicious cake that is moist, fluffy and has the wholesome flavour of cinnamon, grated apples, and pieces of almonds. The sweetness of the apples, combined with the crunch of the almonds makes it the yummiest cake.
Such a cake is made through the process of slicing this sweet fruit to add fragrance to a cake base. Moreover, traditional apple cakes go a step further by including various spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon, which give a unique flavor.
Moreover, the cake can also be made with peaches, plums, pineapples or even cherries. Just make sure that the fruit is sweet. Or you can lightly cook the fruits in sugar syrup or macerate them in sugar. Pineapple, plums or peaches can give a sour and tart taste, which may not go well with some folks.
Selection of Apples:
Apples should be sweet and crunchy to yield the best cake.
