These cakes can be made with eating or cooking apples. Add an extra tablespoon of sugar if using cooking apples.

50 gr sugar (or 75 gr if using cooking apples) – I keep the sugar low as I don’t like cakes to be too sweet.
50 gr salted butter
75 gr ground almonds
25 gr rye flour (you can substitute this with ordinary flour)
1 tsp baking powder
50 gr sultanas
3 eating apples (or 2 medium cooking apples) – peeled and chopped into small pieces
Juice of a lemon
Mix butter and sugar together. Add eggs. (Tip: if mixture starts to separate, give a quick whiz with an electric whisk or hand beater).
Measure ground almonds and rye flour together with baking powder. Fold into mixture.
Add sultanas and chopped apples; stir in grated marzipan and divide into 12 foil cake cases.
Cook for 30 minutes at 180o (not fan)
