Apple, Walnut, Olive Oil Cake


"Apple and walnuts are such a wonderful autumnal combination. They bring a wonderful texture to this not-too-sweet cake that’s inspired by a classic Italian tea cake. The olive oil and almond meal make for a more dense, moist cake, and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary when it just comes out of the oven adds a lovely earthy feel. It’s a perfect dessert, but equally lovely to serve with a cup of coffee for morning tea while you enjoy the warmth from your oven on a cool morning. Have it as is or with a dollop of crème fraîche, drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle of fresh rosemary and pinch of sea salt."
