Doesn't this look Absolutely Delicious?

[IMG][/IMG]

Smitten Kitten does it again with an Apple Sharlotka.


Apple Sharlotka

Adapted from Alex’s mother, who adapted it from her mother, and so on…

Butter or nonstick spray, for greasing pan
6 large, tart apples, such as Granny Smiths
3 large eggs
1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour
Ground cinnamon, to finish
Powdered sugar, also to finish

Directions at link seem pretty easy too....

Now I just need someone to make it for me and take it away so I only eat 1 piece....

1. Yes, it does look good.

I think I would be tempted to put whipped cream on top.

Since it's a Russian recipe, it would be fun to make it with Duchess of Oldenburg apples if you could find them at a local orchard or farm market (or if you grow them). Despite the German-sounding name, this apple was bred in Russia around 1700, and is also a tart apple very good for cooking. Granny Smith would be a good substitute, though.

5. I made this yesterday

I used a combinations of apples I had on hand, mostly pink ladies and galas. It was delicious. I added some chopped almonds and some almond extract.

I will be making this again for sure. Just a hint, the batter is very thick. I put a thin layer of batter on the bottom of the pan before I put the apples in. When I did pour the batter in I moved it around the apples a bit to make sure it was distributed. I also think the nuts and almond extract were vital to the recipe. Another option might be to add even more cinnamon.

I wished I had some whipped cream...That would have made this spectacular

6. About how much chopped almonds did you add?

They do sound like a good addition here.

7. A huge handful

I'm guessing about a third to a half a cup. Next time I will mix them with some cinnamon and maybe a pat of butter to make a paste. It might be nice to have a rich nutty swirl going through. The cake is delish as is but a little richness couldn't hurt. As it is the only fat comes from the eggs. You could make this pretty much fat free and use egg substitute.

This sounds so good. I will definitely be giving it a try. I'm thinking it would be a great brunch item.

10. I made this this morning.

It was outstanding, although not particularly easy. I added about 1/2 cup of sliced almonds, and 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. After removing from the pan, I sprinkled it with a bit of cinnamon (no powdered sugar), and served it slightly warm.

It tastes a bit like a baked (German) apple pancake, and a bit like a cake. It smells absolutely marvelous.
