How 'Bout Those Apples


 The other day I was perusing the web looking for a recipe for dinner. While going through one of my favorite websites (smitten kitchen) I came across a recipe for something called Apple Sharlotka (don't go to her site just yet, because my photos look so sad in comparison.)

It looked pretty awesome, simple to make and I had all the ingredients.  All you need is:
  • 6 Granny Smith Apples
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 C. Sugar
  • 1 C. Flour
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Cinnammon
  • 9" Spring Form Pan
  • Cooking Spray or Butter for Pan
Preheat your oven to 350-degree and grease your pan (I used Cooking Spray). Take your vegetable peeler to the apple and remove skins, followed by core and cut into pieces.  I quartered the apple, sliced each quarter into 3-4 pieces then cut the quater into thirds.  Depending how thin or how chunky you want your apples to be, have at it.
Once all the apples have been chopped up pile them into the greased, spring form pan.
Next you'll want a med to large size mixing bowl.  Add the eggs and sugar.  Mix together well.  Next add the vanilla and flour.  Mix well and don't be alarmed when your mix because very thick.



Once the eggs, sugar, flour vanilla mix is well blended pour over the apples.
Using a spatula or back of a large spoon, pat the batter down into the apples until all ingredients are leveled.  I gave the pan a couple of pats down on the counter for good measure.  Place the pan in the pre-heated oven and back for 45-55 minutes.  When finished and cooled sprinkle powdered sugar and cinnamon over the top.


Viola!  The cake is awesome.  My family loves it.  And I especially love that its very light and not to sweet.  It's very reminiscent of apple bie but less gooey and sweet and of course minus a crust.




Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
