Ingredients

  • 200g ground almonds
  • 120g polenta
  • 1 tsp baking powder - use gluten-free if required
  • 1 heaped tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 200ml light olive oil
  • 2 large eating apples (about 350g) peeled, cored and cut into 1cm dice
  • 50g blanched hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp demerara sugar

Step by step

Get ahead
This cake will keep well in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Line the base and sides of a 20cm diameter springform tin with baking paper.
  2. Place the almonds, polenta, baking powder, cinnamon and a good pinch of salt into a large bowl and mix together thoroughly. Whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer until really pale and thick, about 4 minutes. With the mixer still running, slowly pour in the olive oil in a steady stream. Once incorporated and emulsified, add the chopped apple and the mixed dry ingredients. Stir in with a metal spoon, combining until evenly mixed. Spoon into the cake tin and sprinkle over the chopped hazelnuts and demerara sugar. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the cake.
  3. Leave to cool completely in the tin. Run a knife around the edge of the cake before releasing from the tin.
