Apple Sharlotka

I love a simple apple dessert – thanks F&W for the inspiration.

Ingredients:
5 Granny Smith apples:cored, halved and thinly sliced
1 TBSP lemon juice
3/4 c sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 TBSP flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
Salt
3 eggs
1/2 tsp almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease the bottom and side of an 9-inch springform pan.

In a large bowl, toss the apples with the lemon juice and 2 TBSP of the sugar and let stand for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the flour with the cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

In a stand mixer, beat the eggs with the almond extract and the remaining sugar at medium-high speed until thick and pale yellow and a ribbon forms when the beaters are lifted, 8 to 10 minutes. Gently fold in the dry ingredients just until incorporated.

Spread the apples in the prepared pan in an even layer, then pour the batter evenly over them. Let stand for 5 minutes to allow the batter to sink in a little.

Bake for about 1 hour, until it is golden and crisp on top and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Transfer to a rack and let rest for 15 minutes. Unmold and transfer to a serving platter.

Serves 8 – 10.
