We had been collecting some apples that Robert received at school for a long time. There were some apples that didn't really entice you to eat them as such, but they weren't to be thrown away either. And as I had a craving for a cake, I implemented a simple and easy to make recipe, as I like it, you know! :))
A good, fluffy and fragrant cake… what more could you want?
200 g sugar
100 ml oil
100 ml of cold milk
300 g flour
1 baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
400 g diced apples (weighed after peeling apples and stalks)
Sprinkle the diced apples with cinnamon and sprinkle with lemon juice, so as not to oxidize.
The yolks are mixed with 100 g of sugar and orange powder, until they turn white and become like a cream. Add the oil, mixing lightly as for mayonnaise, then cold milk. The flour is mixed with baking powder and is easily incorporated into the composition. The result will be a whirling composition, which sticks to the mixer blades.
Separately, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Add the rest of the sugar and mix until you get a hard and shiny foam, like meringue. We will incorporate the egg whites into the dough in 2 batches, mixing lightly with a spatula, with light movements, from the bottom up. At the end, add the apples, stirring lightly.
The composition is poured into a large cake tray (or cake) and put in the oven over medium heat for about 50 minutes, until browned and cracks appear on the surface of the cake. The toothpick is tested for safety.
Leave in the tray to cool, then portion as desired.
