It is a delicious cake, but I was a bit disappointed that the almond flavor seems to dominate it and I could hardly taste the apple as a result. I've not done it but it takes a very powerful machine food processor to get it as finely ground as purchased almond paste. Either will work in this recipe. You never bore :.
Thank you again. Cinnamon and sugar are generally mixed in with the apple filling. I an American living in Berlin was also very excited to try this out.
