- 80 g (3 oz) veggie margarine, diced plus
- 2 tablespoons cane sugar

When a childhood friend, who seldom comes to visit, phones and tells you that in tree hours time will be there for lunch, making a cake (together with two first courses and a second course…) is due.
This was an improvised cake, made from an idea I had been having in mind for some time.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Knead with your hands and make a ball-shaped dough. Let it rest in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
Place the apples and the knob of margarine in a frying pan. Let it cook over a medium heat for a couple of minutes. Add the tablespoon of sugar, a pinch of cinnamon and some water if the mixture is too dry. Turn off the heat and add the agar-agar. Mix until thick.
Take the dough from the fridge and roll it out using a rolling pin. It must be pretty thin. Cut it into medium triangles and bake in a preheated oven at 200° C (400° F/Gas Mark 6) for about 10 minutes or until golden. Let it cool.
Spread a tablespoon of apple mixture on a flaky pastry triangle and cover with another triangle. Repeat this operation until you have tree layers of pastry. Spread the melted chocolate on the surface of the last triangle. Sprinkle with cane sugar before serving.
