Apple and Cinnamon Tea Cake GF
If you are wondering how to impress visitors with your gluten free baking? This will do the trick for sure! Everyone loves a cinnamon tea cake.
4 thinly sliced granny smith apples
300g unsalted organic butter
1 C panela sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 free range eggs
1 C almond meal
1 1/3 C gluten free plain flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Apricot Jam for brushing at the end
Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Generously grease a square cake tin with butter, sprinkle with sugar and arrange half the apple slices on the base of the tin.
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy in a large bowl.
Add eggs one at a time with mixer going.
Add flours, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix with a spoon until just combined.
Spread half of the batter over the apple, layer with remaining apple, spread rest of the batter over the top.
Bake in oven for 50mins ( I covered mine with alfoil for the last 15 mins so that it didn't brown too much )
Let cool for 10 mins before turning out onto cake rack.
Brush over the top with a small amount of apricot jam for a glossy finish. Dust with cinnamon.
