Nutritional values

By using coconut blossom sugar instead of conventional refined sugars, you not only get a pleasantly caramel sweetness in the cake, but also ensure your blood sugar levels don't rise too quickly. 

To prevent the crumbles and the flaked almonds from becoming too dark, another piece of baking paper can be placed on the cake during baking.

Kitchen utensils

1 Bowl, 1 Hand mixer, 1 Baking sheet, 1 Apple corer, 1 Knife

Preparation steps


Mix flour and baking powder, add cold, chopped butter and coconut blossom sugar. Cut the vanilla pod open lengthwise, scrape out the pulp and add to the flour mixture together with the eggs. Use the dough hooks of a hand mixer to make crumbles. Spread 2/3 of the crumbled dough on a baking tray covered with baking paper and press down to a firm base.


Rinse lemon with hot water, dab dry, grate peel and squeeze juice. Peel and quarter apples, remove core and cut apple quarters into finer slices. Mix the slices with the lemon zest, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, cinnamon and honey. Arrange the apple slices in rows on the dough base and sprinkle the remaining crumbled dough and almond flakes over them.


Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for approx. 40 minutes.
