Method

 
Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Cream butter and sugar together well. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda together and add, alternately with the buttermilk, to the creamed mixture. Spoon half the batter into a greased 23cm loose-bottomed round spring-form pan. Layer the apples on the top and cover with the remaining batter.

Topping:
Combine all the ingredients and sprinkle over the top of the cake.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 40-50 minutes, or until the cake is done. Cool slightly in the pan and then remove carefully and place on a serving plate. Dust with icing sugar before serving.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
