Chunky apple and marmalade cake...

Apple cake, actually any form of apple cake is one of my favourite types of all cakes. There are as many different types of apple cake as there are types of apples! Each and everyone different, with a distinctive taste and some unique qualities - texture, form, shape...

In this version of an apple cake you can definitely taste the almonds and a hint of whiskey too. Hope you'll try it, especially that apples are available all year round and are one of the cheapest fruit you can get.
