For the Cake Base

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

For the Apple and Almond Layer

  • 2 apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

For the Streusel

  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tbsp sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a 7-inch square cake pan.

  2. Mix all the ingredients for the base in a large mixing bowl. Incorporate well. Spoon batter into the greased baking pan and press it down using a spoon until all the batter is evenly distributed across the surface.

  3. Arrange the apple slices over the dough in three rows, with the apples slightly overlapping. Sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg then top with the slivered almonds.

  4. To make the streusel, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle streusel on top of the cake and bake for 1 hour or more, until lightly golden.
