  • Pour batter into the greased baking pan. Arrange apple slices over the top. Press them firmly into the batter, but make sure the slices are still visible. Sprinkle pearl sugar and cinnamon over the apples.

The flavor of this cake is so good--it isn't too sweet, which really allows the apples to shine. I was surprised at just how buttery the cake part tasted with only having 1/4 cup melted butter in it (I was also surprised to see no egg in the recipe either). Regardless, the cake is delicious and has a wonderful texture. The only changes I made were to use 1 1/2 tsps cardamom (because I really love it) and to add 1/2 tsp salt. I baked this in a 9 inch springform pan, and it took 55 minutes to bake. So, I would definitely keep an eye on your bake time--as 40 minutes was not enough for my cake. Thank you for the recipe--this is a wonderful cake! Read More

Great cake for coffee or dessert with ice cream. Cardamom is so good. Perfect for small batch cooking. Read More
