Dorset Apple Cake

Time to get out your scales! Adapted from Cook Britain

225 grams flour
pinch salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
40 grams ground almonds
210 grams sugar
170 grams unsalted butter, melted
zest of 1 lemon
3 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into 8 and mixed with 1 tablespoon lemon juice (I used Gala)
2 tablespoons flaked almonds

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line bottom of 8" round cake pan with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, salt, baking powder, ground almonds, and sugar. Blend in melted butter, lemon zest followed by eggs, one at a time, and milk, until smooth batter forms.
3. Spread half of the batter into the bottom of the prepared pan. Arrange apple slices over top of batter and then spread over remaining batter to cover apples. Sprinkle on flaked almonds.
4. Bake cake for about an hour until golden brown on top and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cake cool completely in the pan then slice & serve!

Serves 8. For best keeping, store cake in the refrigerator.
