Recipe: Apple Rose Cake (No Refined Sugar)

Hello my dears! Before I start inundating you with Christmas recipes (!), I’d like to share one last autumn recipe with you: Apple Rose Cake (No Refined Sugar).

slices
Prep Time 45 min.

Cook Time

Passive Time

ZUTATEN:

  • 200 g spelt flour
  • 50 g sliced almonds
  • 3 TBSP coconut blossom sugar*
  • salt*
  • 1 egg
  • 125 g Butter chilled
  • 500 ml milk or non-dairy alternative
  • 4 TBSP cornstarch
  • 1 generous pinch ground vanilla* or 1 TSP pure vanilla extract
  • 3 apples red
  • 60 ml lemon juice

ANLEITUNG:
  1. Make the dough: in a bowl, combine flour with ground almonds, 2 tbsp coconut sugar, and a pinch of salt. Chop butter into pieces and combine with egg. Knead everything into a smooth dough. Cover and let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. While dough is chilling, make the topping: mix 4 tbsp milk with the starch. In a pot, boil vanilla, milk, and starch with remaining milk and 1 tbsp coconut sugar. Stir until a thick liquid “cream” has formed, then remove pot from heat immediately.
  3. Wash, core, and quarter apples. Using a mandoline, cut apple quarters lengthwise into fine slices (approx. 2 mm), ensuring that the skin on the edge of each slice remains visible. Add slices to a bowl and carefully combine with lemon juice.
  4. Preheat oven to 175°C (top and bottom heat) and grease springform pan. On a floured work surface, roll dough out into a circle. Press dough into bottom and 3–4 high along the sides (3–4 cm high) of the springform pan. Spread vanilla cream over dough.
  5. Make the apple rose petals: starting from the edge and working inwards, lay out apple slices (skin edge upwards) over the vanilla cream until a “rose” is formed. Bake cake in preheated oven (middle rack) for 50 minutes. Remove from oven, briefy let cool, and release from springform pan.
