Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   Gluten-Free
Servings   12
Preptime   1 hour

4 medium apples, peeled and chopped (johnagold, honeycrisp, gala, pink lady all work w
juice of one lemon
Coconut oil/spray
8 eggs
2 3/4 c almond meal
3/4 c sugar plus 1T for sprinkling
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 pint heavy cream, chilled
1 vanilla bean pod, split and seeds removed
1 tsp. ground cardamom
2T sugar
thinly sliced fresh apples, peeled, sliced and tossed in lemon juice - for top of cake
1/2 c sliced almonds for top of cake
honey for drizzling (optional)

In medium sauce pot, combine apples, lemon juice, a pinch of salt and 3/4c sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, cover pot and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes until apples have released their juices and softened and cooked down. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 min. (You can skip this step and use good quality prepared applesauce - you will need about 1 1/2 c)
Grease a 9 inch springform pan with coconut oil and line bottom with parchment paper also greased with oil. In blender, combine eggs, cooled apple mixture/applesauce, vanilla, cinnamon and almond meal. Blend to fully combine. Batter should be smooth and thick, but still pourable.
Pour batter into prepared springform pan, using spatula to remove all batter from blender. Top batter with almonds and sliced apples. Sprinkle with 1T sugar and additional cinnamon if desired. Bake in pre-heated 325F oven for 40 - 50 minutes. Check to see if center of cake is set by gently shaking pan. Turn off heat and allow cake to sit in oven for 10 minutes in residual heat if set. Continue to bake at 350F for 5 - 10 minutes if not set. Cracks will form along top of cake when done.
Cool cake for minimum of 1 hour and remove sides of pan (using knife along edges before removing cake pan from spring form to loosen). Cake can be refrigerated for up to a week. To prepare whipped cream- Pour chilled heavy cream into a large mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Add 2T sugar, vanilla bean seeds from pod and ground cardamom. Continue to beat on high speed with mixer until desired consistency/thickness is achieved.
