Ingredients

  • 2 medium Gala, Pink Lady or Fuji apples, peeled and thinly sliced

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Toss the sliced apples with the 2 teaspoons cinnamon and set aside.

5. Butter and flour a springform pan. Pour half the batter in the prepared pan, layer all the apples evenly over the batter, and top with the remaining batter.

6. In a small bowl, combine the slivered almonds and the remaining ground cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the cake.
