A week ago we went to one of my favorite restaurants to have Ethiopian food, YUM! For dessert I ordered a piece of almond cake that was absolutely out of this world. The strangest thing is that I dislike almonds (very much), to the extent that you could catch me cursing when?finding?out that I?just washed my hands with almond soap. Yep.

Well guess what, almond cake has become my new obsession. Last Sunday we had guests over for dinner and I promised my son we’d?make an apple tart. I changed my mind and took a risk experimenting with the great unknown: almonds!

Thank god it turned out incredible! Moist and light, not too sweet or fatty and still very satisfying. I had just enough left over for my kids lunchbox the next day : )

Units: Servings: 8X8' cake
How it's made
  1. Preheat the Oven to 350 F. Grease a 8X8' cake pan. Peel and dice the apples.
  2. Mix together the eggs and sugar. Add the oil, apple sauce, and vanilla. In a different bowl mix the flours, salt, baking soda, almond meal and cinnamon.
  3. Add the dry mix into the egg mix. Mix until well blended. Gently fold the apples in with a spatula.
  4. Pour the batter in the baking dish and place in the oven. One level higher than the middle. The batter should fill up about 2/3 of the dish. If you have extra you can use it in a smaller tin, like I did. Bake for 45mn.
Recipe Notes

You can also bake this batter in small cake dishes, or in a muffin tin. You should adjust the baking time to about 20-25mn depending on the size. Check for doneness at 20 mn with a tooth pick, or by just gently padding the top of the cake, to feel if it's still mushy or firm.
