Ingredients

6 apples 1.1 kg
7 tbsp butter, unsalted 100 g
1 cup sugar 200 g
2 eggs size large
1 cup almonds, blanched 150 g
170 mL "Crème Anglaise" [optional]

Before you start

The almonds must be blanched in advance.

A mill or food processor will be very useful to finely grind the almonds. A mixer will be very useful to beat the egg whites.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F. Butter a baking dish.
  2. Peel and core the apples then cut them in half. Blanch them 4 min in a pot of boiling water. Drain well and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Mix the butter and sugar in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Separate the egg whites from the yolks: add the yolks to the butter-sugar mixture, incorporating them well; add the whites to another bowl. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until finely ground, then add them to the mixture.
  5. Beat the egg whites to form stiff peaks using a mixer, then fold them into the mixture, blending gently with a spatule. Pour the mixture over the apples in the baking dish and bake in the middle of the oven 20 min.
  6. Let the apples cool down, then serve them with the light crème anglaise, if desired.

This cake was quite tasty, and decadently rich. A little too sweet for my liking, and you could certainly only have a small piece. However, it was very flavourful, and a big hit with the family. The creme anglais cuts the sweetness, but not the richness. I made it with 3/4 cup of ground almonds instead of grinding my own, and it was a little crumbley and didn't hold a shape well, maybe because of this. When I make it again, I will try it in a square pan and serve it as squares. Nice recipe, I will make it again next apple season!
