    120 grams paleo flour
  • At the bottom of a round spring form, add apples. They should cover the whole surface of the cake form. Pour the cake dough over the apples.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the tooth pick comes out clear. Let it stand for 15 minutes before removing the cake from the pan. Enjoy hot or cold.


*do not over mix the eggs and sugar. Once you see tiny bubbles appear and it becomes fluffy, time to add the flour.
*if your cake pan is not new, use some cooking spray or parchment paper to prevent sticking.
