Apples in Winter

It's so stupid cold that it's impossible to have the windows open for some fresh air and the furnace is running quite often, so baking has made our house smell lovely and the oven helps warm up the main living area. 

This is the latest creation, an apple and almond cake, only we used hazelnuts:

And here is the recipe!  We didn't peel the apples, there's no need, it all goes nice and soft, and we didn't use any special apples.  Also, I layered the dough, ground almonds and apples instead of trying to lift the apples so the dough could run underneath.

I was afraid the whole thing would be very loose and fall apart but surprisingly the entire cake is very firm and you can cut and serve cleanly.

And it is delicious!  Not too sweet, it's a lovely breakfast cake especially when you serve it warm and aromatic... yummmmm.  
This recipe is from an October 2008 issue of "Homemakers".  Thank you, Sally, for passing it along!
