Does cinnamon belong to the same season as warm blankets and candles? If you think so, then these two delicious "flower power" cakes are right up your alley. Whether you opt for apple or nuts, this cake is sure to be a winner on those cold winter days!

You'll need:

For the yeast dough (for each variant):

  • 8 fl oz lukewarm water
  • 1 tbsp dry yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 2½ oz sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 fl oz oil
  • 22 oz flour

For the apple version:

  • 2 apples
  • 1 bowl of lemon water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1½ oz sugar
  • 1 egg
  • icing for decoration

For the nut version:

  • 10½ oz ground walnuts
  • 8½ fl oz cream
  • 1½ oz sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • chocolate icing for decoration

Here's how:

You need yeast dough for both the apple and nut version. To make it, knead the water, dry yeast, eggs, sugar, salt, oil, and flour together and leave the covered dough to prove for half an hour until it is considerably larger.

1. Apple Version

1.1 Cut two apples into thin slices and place them in a bowl of lemon water for several minutes.

1.2 Roll out the yeast dough and place the apple slices on top in three rows. Be sure to leave a little distance to one of the edges. Next, mix the cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle the mixture onto the apple slices.

1.3 Now lift the free edge of dough and place it on top of the first row of apple slices. Next, roll this covered row onto the next row of apple slices until everything is rolled up.

1.4 Cut the roll of dough into pieces.

1.5 Place each piece of filled dough in a greased Bundt cake tin. Insert an apple slice into the gaps and brush whisked egg onto everything.

1.6 After baking the cake at 350°F for 30 minutes, garnish with icing. It's now time to get tearing!

2. Nut Version

2.1 Mix the ground walnuts with cream, sugar, and cinnamon. Spread the mixture onto the yeast dough in three rows and roll it up.

2.2 Cut the roll of dough into pieces.

2.3 Place the pieces of filled dough into a Bundt cake tin and brush whisked egg onto everything.

2.4 After baking everything at 350°F for 30 minutes, decorate your nut flower cake with chocolate icing. Doesn't it look irresistible?

Do you know which version you're gonna bake first? Or will you impress your guests and serve both at the same time? Whatever you decide to do, satisfaction is guaranteed.
