Sprinkle sugar over the baking paper in the prepared tin, place the slices of apple on top.

Cake mixture

Place the butter, jelly and sugar in a bowl, mix thoroughly using the whisk attachment on a mixer. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to beat until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Combine the polenta, flour, baking powder and salt, mix in. Spread the cake mixture over the apple slices.

Mix the mascarpone and jelly, spread over the base, cover with the top half of the cake.
