Finally, add egg white and mix to combine until you have a thick batter.

Scrap half of the batter into prepared tin and gently level out. Sprinkle over, ground cinnamon and diced apple, cover it with remains of the batter and again sprinkle over cinnamon powder and diced apple.

Bake it in the oven for 40 minutes. Test the cake by inserting a knife or skewer into the centre, it should come out clean. Leave the cake to cool for 15 minutes and then remove it from the tin. Cut it into pieces. Dust with sifted icing sugar and garnish with crushed pistachio.
