Today we made Apple Almond Cake!
1/2C butter, 1/2C sugar, 3 eggs, 1t salt, scant 1 1/2C flour, 2t baking powder, 3 medium apples, peeled and sliced in crescents; 1C coarsely chopped, salted, roasted almonds, 1T almond extract
Topping: 1T lemon juice, 2t cinnamon, 1/4C brown sugar
Preheat oven to 325F. Sift together dry ingredients. In separate bowl, beat butter with sugar.
Add eggs and extract.
Beat in dry ingredients.
Stir in almonds.
Spread into greased, rectangular cake pan.
Press one half the apple crescents into batter in desired pattern. Mix topping ingredients into a paste.
Spread on apples.
Place remaining apples on top. (For more intense topping flavor, double topping amounts and spread on top layer of apples.)
Bake 45-55 minutes or until cake is lightly browned.
