Butter Cake! Today you will get a butter cake with lots of apples, almonds, and caramel sauce. I warn you, this is a yeast dough that requires you to start at least the night before and that needs a few hours of rising before you can actually bake it. But if you bear with me and go through all the hassle, I can promise you, this is an ultra fluffy yeast dough with a nice crunch at the same time. Think of baked apples and caramel sauce as the addition to this delicious cake and you will love this one.
I often take cake to work. My colleagues are some of my regular test eaters. And since I bring cake to work often, I usually can tell if a recipe stands out. That was definitely the case with this apple almond cake. Suddenly I found post-its saying “Thank you to our baking queen” or “Thanks for making my Thursday morning much sweeter.” My conclusion? This apple almond cake is a keeper, it is a keeper because no other cake has received as many post-it notes. It definitely needs to be posted on the blog. If you want apples in your coffee cake, this is the cake to choose. You have some apple in the cake dough, a lot of apple compote on the top with some nicely browned almonds plus one full apple as pretty decoration on the top. I mean, you got APPLE cake for sure with this one.
