Apple Cinnamon Cake courtesy of Chicho’s Kitchen
1 tbsp cinnamon
4 tbsp sugar
1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
6 oz (180g) butter, softened
1 1/3 cup brown sugar
½ cup milk
1/4 cup flaked almonds
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven at 350ºF (180ºC). Peel and slice the apples. Toss them with 1 tbsp cinnamon and 4 tbsp sugar. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl, cream the softened butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Fold the sifted flour alternately with milk.
Grease a spring-form pan. Pour half the batter in then spread the apples. Pour the remaining batter. Combine the flaked almonds with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the cake.
Bake for one hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
