How to make homemade apple cake

Difficulty: Easy
  • Total time 1 h 10 min
  • Elaboration 25 m
  • Cooking 45 m

We preheat the oven to 180ºC with heat up and down without air. We separate the yolks from the whites of the eggs. We mount the yolks with the sugar until they turn white. Add the soft butter and beat until it is integrated.

We add the sifted flour and yeast. We mount the whites to the point of strong snow. We add a third to the dough and mix without care to lighten the mixture, the rest of the egg whites we mix carefully, with enveloping movements from bottom to top.

Line a 20 cm round mold with baking paper or grease it with butter and a little flour. We pour half of the dough and place thin slices of apple. We add the rest of the dough and garnish with the remaining apple. We sprinkle a little sugar and bake for about 45-50 minutes.

If the cake browns very quickly, we can cover it with silver foil once the first 30 minutes have elapsed. We remove from the oven and leave about 15 minutes before unmolding. Heat three tablespoons of apricot jam and brush with it.
