DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350º. Butter the bottom and sides of a 10-inch spring-form pan or cake pan. Sprinkle the crumbs in the pan, being sure to coat the bottom and sides as evenly as possible.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup sugar with butter. Add one egg at a time until all are incorporated.
  • Sift together the flour and baking powder. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the bowl until a smooth batter is formed. Pour batter into pan.
  • Toss the apple slices in the cinnamon and 3 tablespoons remaining sugar, then press each one lightly into the batter to form a decorative pattern (pinwheel pattern is the prettiest). Scatter chopped almonds across the top.
  • Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
