cinnamon cake


Almond flour is my new Mantra. I recently discovered its taste and texture in bakery and now it's everywhere on my menu. We love it. I previously baked almond paste cookies so this time I decided to use fruits for a change. The Apple Cake With Cinnamon from Clea came to my mind…how about adding a personal touch ? The recipe can't be more simple : wheat flour (organic if possible), raw sugar and virgin plum oil is all you will need. I chose virgin plum oil and its almond-like flavor to add a plus. I also included a lot of apples because this is really what I like the most in cakes.


170 grams wheat flour (T65 type)
1 tea spoon yeast
90 grams raw sugar
2 eggs
100 ml milk
80 grams white almond paste
40 ml virgin plum oil
3 apples
Cinnamon and raw sugar to sprinkle on the cake

Preheat the oven to 180° (Th 6). Mix flour, yeast and sugar in a bakery bowl
Add the eggs and mix again.
Add plum oil, milk and almond flour. Mix
Pour this mixture in a bakery mould. Peel the apples and cut them into slices. Place them in the dough.
Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes (or less)

After 20 minutes of baking, sprinkle the cake with raw sugar and cinnamon.

Serve warm

The result ? : We loved it !
The dough wraps up the apple pieces and virgin plum oil adds a gorgeous almond taste. A real pleasure … Next time I will try with olive oil. It's wonderful in bakery and brings in a more subtle taste.
