Apple Nut Cake I (D, TNT)
Source: My Mother
Serves: 10

1kg (2 lb.) finely sliced apples
200g de farine (1-1/2 cups) flour
300ml (1-1/4 cups) lukewarm milk
250g (1 cup) sugar + 2 tablespoons for the top
4 eggs
100g (1 cup) ground hazelnuts
100g (1 cup) skinless almonds, finely sliced
100g (1 cup) raisins, golden or black
A few drops of vanilla extract or vanilla sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg or clove
1 pinch ginger
2 tbsp. rum or brandy; less if you don't like it.
Juice of two lemons
. Pinch of salt
Butter flakes

Put the sliced apples and the raisins in a bowl, add the lemon juice; set aside.

In another large bowl mix well the flour and lukewarm milk. Add the eggs one by one, sugar, vanilla, rum or brandy, spices, salt, and the ground hazelnuts. Mix well to make a slightly thick sauce. Drain apples and raisins in a colander and add them in the sauce. Mix.

Pour the mixture in a baking pan. Sprinkle the sliced almonds, 2 tbsp. sugar and some butter flakes on the top.

One hour in a preheated oven 180°C (350°F). Try with a knife.

Poster's Notes:
You can eat it cold or warm. We like warm with vanilla ice cream.

Sometimes my mother added chopped nuts, chunks of dried figs and/or dried apricots.
