Some recipes come from a moment of inspiration, when something inspires you to go out of your comfort zone and experiment – and then there are recipes like this one, which are born from looking over at a fruit bowl and realising the apples needed using.
It was one of those magical moments where the fates seems to align. If I had never looked at that fruit bowl, one of my new favourite cakes would’ve never have been created. It was meant to be.
This is not like those party cakes, drowned in frosting. It’s a simple, warming, homemade and utterly delicious cake that so happens to double as a breakfast cake, though you could definitely have it alongside a mug of tea or coffee in the afternoon. There are no rules here.
It’s moist and soft, while still having a delicious crunch from the almonds and a delicious sweetness and warmth from the apples and cinnamon.
It barely lasted the day in my house, but maybe you’re better at self control than I am!
