Preparation method:

Put the flour on a work surface and make a well in the centre of the mound. Melt the butter and pour into the well along with the baking powder, sugar, two eggs and a pinch of salt. Incorporate to obtain a smooth dough. Butter a tin and line with the shortcrust pastry ensuring it sticks to the edges well. Spread with a thin layer of apricot jam. Quarter and slice the apple and place on top of the jam in a fan shape.
Cook in the oven at 180°C for 45 minutes. In the meantime, melt the gelatine in a bain-marie and mix with the cinnamon powder. Once cooked, cool the cake and then brush with the cinnamon-flavoured gelatine. Cut into slices and serve with a light dusting of icing sugar.
