Nutty Apple Tray Cake

Ingredients (for four people):

  • 400ml soy drink, nature
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 200g Alsan, room temperature
  • 200g sugar
  • 320g flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 150g hazelnuts ground
  • 80g marzipan
  • 6-8 apples, sour varieties


  • baking paper


  1. Give soy drink in a bowl. Wash and rub lemon peel, put abrasion aside. Halve and squeeze lemon, mix lemon juice with the soy drink and curdle about 15 minutes.
  2. Whip room warm Alsan with sugar until creamy. Cut marzipan raw mass into small pieces.
  3. Give ground hazelnuts in a dry frying pan and fry for a few minutes while stirring until the nuts develop their flavour. Put flour, salt, baking powder and the roasted nuts into a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Add marzipan pieces and lemon peel abrasion, then alternately add the margarine and sugar mixture and the coagulated soy drink and work all ingredients with a hand mixer to a uniform dough.
  4. Peel the apples, quarter and core. Quarter apple pieces and cut each piece several times with a knife.
  5. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and spread dough on it. Spread apple slices evenly over the dough and press them lightly.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C for about 40-50 minutes.
