I often go back into my vast repertoire and re-do something from the past. I mean after all, I like them, so of course I will re-make them and re-share them. You can’t argue with success, right?! My Italian apple cake Italian Apple Cake is my latest re-make I am sharing with you. Once again, it was a massive hit with everyone and there was none leftover. 🙂
Usually when I re-share something, I have tweaked it a bit, and hopefully am making it even better than it was before. This time, I added almond slivers on top before baking, which in my opinion, made it much better. It already has almond flour in it, so why not add slivered almonds too?
This cake is filled with lots of apples and almonds. Not only does pairing apples and almonds together taste good, but both are also great sources of fiber, which makes them a healthy and fiber-packed treat. Fiber helps fill your stomach and slows digestion to keep you going until your next meal, which may just mean you may actually be easting a bit less too.
Once the apples were cooked with butter, sugar and cinnamon, I lined the bottom of my greased 9×13 baking pan with about 1/2 of the deliciously softened apples. Then I added the cake batter on top. Another layer of apples and a final layer of almond slivers went on top before putting it in the oven.
Bake at 350* F or about 190* C for about an hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the cake is golden brown. Then let cool completely before adding a dusting of powdered sugar and slicing it. This cake is best when shared with family, friends and loved ones, but then, most things are.
!Mangia, mangia e buon appeitito!
Have a great day Everyone. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
