Decided it was an afternoon to do a little baking and decided to try my hand for the 2nd time at the delicious SHARLOTKA APPLE CAKE. It is the easiest & quickest cake to whip up for an afternoon tea with friends or a quick dessert to serve with cream or ice cream. "Sharlotka" a Russian version of an apple pie.
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Flour
4 Large Apples
Wash, peal and dice apples into one inch pieces.
Using a mixer, beat eggs with sugar, until it’s three times in volume.
Using a spatula, fold in flour by thirds; be very gentle with the dough, to not overmix it and lose the fluffiness.
Lay out the diced apples on the bottom of a 9 inch pan. Cover apples with cake batter, shake the pan a bit, to spread batter between each apple piece.
Bake it at 180 for 40 minutes, check, using a wooden toothpick. If the cake is ready, the dough should not stick to the toothpick. Once the cake will cool off a little, turn it over with the bottom up and dust with some powdered sugar.
