Baked Apple Almond Cakes

Serve Anna Olson's apple cakes warm with a dusting of icing sugar.


  • 4 Mutsu or Golden Delicious apples

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 2/3 cup ground almonds

  • 2 large eggs

  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

  • ¼ tsp almond extract

  • pinch salt

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds

  • icing sugar, for dusting


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 375 °F and lightly grease an 8-inch baking dish.

  • 2.

    Peel apples a third down from the stem and generously core out apples with a melon baller, leaving about ¾-inch of apple and bottom intact, and reserving apple pieces that don’t have core or seeds. Place apples in prepared baking dish and brush tops with melted butter.

  • 3.

    Puree apple pieces in a food processor and measure ¼ cup to use with sugar, then pulse in almonds, eggs, extracts and salt. Spoon mixture into the center of each apple and sprinkle sliced almonds on top. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until tops of apples are a rich golden brown.
