Apple Cake with Almond Crust

, , , , ,

I love all kinds of apple cake. This apple cake with almond crust is especially delicious because of the almond crust, which harmonises perfectly with the delicately tart, sweet apples.

The base is a simple shortcrust pastry that is quick to prepare.

I had to bake this cake three times before I could take pictures of it. The children couldn’t wait to eat it each time because it was so delicious. 🙂
