Romanian Apple Cake, recipe from a friend

Here is a wonderful recipe for Apple Cake from a dear friend. She is a great cook and very generous with her culinary masterpieces. At Christmas and on birthdays she will appear with trays of beautifully crafted biscuits and cakes, works of art that could grace any pasticcieria. So when she told me about the apple cake that she had made I immediately asked her to teach me.

Romanian Apple Cake

4 apples, peeled and cored.
5 eggs, separated
250g flour
250g sugar
100g butter, melted and cooled
1 small cup of milk
1 small packet of baking powder

Heat the oven to 200
Slice the prepared apples into three and line a rectangular cake tin.
Sprinkle them with sugar and dot with butter.
Bake in the hot oven for about 30 minutes until the apples are slightly golden.
remove from the oven and let the apples cool.

In a large mixing bowl beat the egg whites until stiff and then add the sugar.
Beat the egg yolks together with the melted butter.
Mix the two egg mixtures together in the same bowl and then fold in the flour and the baking powder.
Stir in the milk.
Spoon the cake mixture evenly over the apples.
bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 190 and then turn the heat down to 160 and bake for another 20 minutes.
Check with a toothpick or skewer that the cake is cooked.
Let the cake cool in the tin for 10 minutes and then turn it over onto a board.

It looks very attractive with the apple rings on the top.
This cake will now definitely be one of my favourite Apple Cake recipes.
Hope you like it.
