The method for this recipe is a little unusual and a bit of a fiddle, but the result is delicious and a good use for any scruffier apples in the fruit bowl. The ‘crumble’ sinks down into the cake to create extra texture - allow the cake to cool before eating to fully appreciate the crunchy crumbs.



  • 4 smallish dessert apples peeled, cored and slicedBabylon Apples
  • 1 heaped teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 50g light soft brown sugar
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • salt
  • 250g self raising flour
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp sultanas


  1. Line and grease a 23cm springform cake tin and pre-heat the oven to 180c.
  2. Toss the apple slices with the cinnamon and sultanas.
  3. Melt 200g of the butter and set aside to cool.
  4. In a mixing bowl rub together the ground almonds, the remaining 50g butter, 50g of the flour, the soft brown sugar and a pinch of salt..
  5. When the ingredients are well mixed and forming into small clusters scatter onto a baking tray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
