Apple & Almond cake

Apple & Almond cake

The Rum in this cake just adds an extra depth of flavour and this is perfect served with some tea. This cake will serve about 2 people so just increase the ingredients if you are serving more. This is a thick cake so it will can be deceptive when cooking since it will start going brown even though it’s not fully cooked. It will required piercing, I usually use a chopstick and if it comes out clear it’s done. Also before serving run a knife around the edge of the cake and tin so that it will come out in one piece.
