Sunday = Cakeday

I had some leftover apples and that's what I used them for today... The combination of apples, nuts and cinnamon just always works. This cake goes wonderfully with an extra helping of whipped cream... heart-warming... Perfect for such a lazy day in late autumn.

Apple Slices:
(Source: LE MENU 10/2010)

100g soft butter
125g mascarpone (I had none at hand so I used creme fraiche)
150g sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
50g ground hazelnuts
125g flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 apples, peeled, cut into slices
2 tbsp cream
2 tbsp sugar crystals

Preheat oven to 200°C.

Beat butter until smooth. Add mascarpone, sugar, salt and cinnoman. Blend well. Add eggs and beat until you have a light batter. Mix hazelnuts, flour and baking powder and add to the other batter. Mix well. Pour the batter into a prepared caketin of 32cm length.

Stick the apple slices into the cake batter, brush with cream and sprinkle the sugar crystals over the cake. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 30 minutes. Serve warm or cold, with extra cream or vanilla icecream.
