“Posted for ZWT6 Scandinavian Region - Sweden. Oh boy does this sound heavenly. I can't wait to try it out. If you do not have biscotti you can process into crumbs they state you can use almond rusk crumbs, zwieback crumbs, or fine dry bread crumbs (even though I don't think I'd like the idea of bread crumbs - just my opinion).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Butter the bottom and sides of a 10-inch spring-form pan or cake pan. Sprinkle the crumbs in the pan, being sure to coat the bottom and sides as evenly as possible.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup sugar with butter. Add one egg at a time until all are incorporated.
  3. Sift together the flour and baking powder. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the bowl until a smooth batter is formed. Pour batter into pan.
  4. Toss the apple slices in the cinnamon and 3 tablespoons remaining sugar, then press each one lightly into the batter to form a decorative pattern (pinwheel pattern is the prettiest). Scatter chopped almonds across the top.
  5. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
