Apple & Poppyseed Cake Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a deep 9-inch round cake pan and line it with parchment or waxed (greaseproof) paper.

Beat the butter and 1 cup of the sugar in a bowl until just combined. Add the eggs, flours, milk, poppy seeds, and lemon zest. Beat the mixture on low speed with an electric mixer until combined. Then beat on high speed until the mixture is light and creamy, about 5 minutes.

Spread the mixture into the prepared pan. Arrange the apple slices, overlapping around the top of the cake, and sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar.

Bake the mixture in the oven for 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Take the cake out of the oven and let stand in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.

Serve warm or cold.

Hint: Cut the apples as thinly as possible, otherwise the apple will sink into the middle of the cake during cooking.
