500 gram cooking apples, cored and thinly sliced
¼ cup flaked (sliced) almonds
½ cup superfine sugar

Ready-made fresh custard or single (light) cream, to serve
Beat together the butter and caster sugar in a large mixing bowl until the mixture is very light and fluffy
Gradually beat the eggs into the butter mixture, beating well after each addition, then fold in the lemon rind, flour and ground almonds.
Mix the brown sugar with the apples and lemon juice in a bowl, then turn into an ovenproof dish. Spoon the topping mixture on top of the apples, leveling the surface, then sprinkle with the flaked almonds.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden. Serve immediately with fresh custard or cream.
