  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • pinch cinnamon
  • sticks unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cups blanched almonds finely ground
  • 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • tsp baking powder

Instructions
 

Caramelized Apple Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Place the apples, maple syrup and cinnamon in a baking dish, stir well and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Grease a 10-inch round springform pan and line with parchment paper. In a mixer, beat the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy.
  • With the mixer on low, add the eggs one by one. Once incorporated, add the vanilla extract and ground almonds and stir.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder together in a small bowl and fold into the batter. Pour the batter into the springform pan and push the apples and the pan juices into and over the batter.
  • Bake the cake for 30 minutes, remove from oven and lower the heat to 325°.
  • Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the brown sugar, orange zest and almonds. Spread evenly over the cake and bake for 1 hour. Remove from the springform and let cool to room temperature.

Fresh Maple Cream

  • Whip the cream and vanilla in a mixer with the whisk on high speed. As the cream thickens, drizzle in the maple syrup.
  • Continue whisking until it is as thick as you like, and remove. Serve on top of cake slices.
