Cooking sponge cake with apples:

Step 1: prepare the flour.

To make the flour free from lumps and lush, sift it through a sieve into a clean bowl. To prepare our pie, we take wheat flour of the highest grade and finely ground.

Step 2: prepare the apples.

We wash the apples under running water and use a knife to peel them from the skin. We shift the fruit onto a cutting board and, using sharp tools, remove the peel and seeds from the apples. Then cut the apples into small slices, transfer to a plate and sprinkle them with cinnamon.

Step 3: prepare the eggs.

We take out the eggs from the refrigerator, chilled, they beat better. Mixing of two egg components should not be allowed, as the eggs will not beat well. Therefore, it is important to properly separate the yolk and protein. We take the egg in one hand and with the tip of the knife we ​​lightly hit the egg shell. We must try to do this so that the upper half of the shell is less than the lower. Then carefully remove the upper half by hand and holding two halves of the eggshell side by side, connect them so that a narrow gap forms between them. Through it, we filter the egg white in a bowl, and grab the yolk on the upper half of the egg shell. Usually, several strands of protein lag behind the shell poorly, so with a fork we separate them from the shell and put them in a bowl with the protein ingredient. We transfer the yolk from the second half of the shell to another clean bowl. This procedure needs to be done with each egg. It's important to know: so that the egg ingredients beat well, the bowls in which we transfer the yolk and protein separately, as well as the container where we beat the protein, must be clean and dry.

Step 4: prepare the dough.

Pour the proteins from the bowl into the mixer bowl and add sugar with a tablespoon. Sugar is added to the proteins gradually, one tablespoon each. Turn on the mixer at high speed. At the beginning of whipping, the protein becomes bubbly. Then you need to turn off the mixer and again add one tablespoon of sugar to the proteins in the container. Beat the protein again at high speed. At this time, the protein acquires a fluffy white color. This process is repeated until the required amount of sugar is used up. Soon, the protein will become more dense, smooth and uniform. We check the quality of the process: if solid peaks appear and the protein mass does not flow from the tilted dishes in which it is located, then the protein is ready. It is important to ensure that when whisking reaches the bottom of the container and whips the entire volume of protein. Using a tablespoon, add the yolks one after the other into the bowl with whipped proteins, and vanilla sugar. We continue to whisk everything at high speed. Our mass acquires a yellowish color due to the yolk and continues to harden. After that, we reduce the speed of the mixer and gradually add flour to the mass from the glass. We mix everything well with a whisk of the mixer at low speed until a homogeneous state of the test. The dough in consistency becomes like thick sour cream.

Step 5: make a biscuit with apples.

Lubricate the bottom and sides of the baking dish with butter and using a tablespoon pour the dough from the container into the mold. We spread apple slices on the surface of the dough so that they do not touch the sides of the form. We heat the oven to a temperature 180 ° C and put the dish form in the oven. Baked cake 35 - 40 minutes. And you can check the readiness of the biscuit with a toothpick. It is important to stick it in the dough, and not in apple slices. If it stays dry, then our dough is ready. With the help of kitchen gloves, we get out a baking dish with a pie. Let it cool and then transfer to a wide dish. Using a sieve, evenly sprinkle the top of the cake with icing sugar. On top of the cake you can decorate with fresh berries or apple slices.

Step 6: serve the biscuit with apples.

Serve a biscuit with apples on a dish for dessert for tea or other drinks. Apple pie is juicy, delicate and very fragrant. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - To prepare the dough, we take only fresh eggs. They beat better, but a little longer, because they have a very thick protein. But fresh eggs are better kept in a whipped condition.

- - When whipping the protein, you can add powdered sugar instead of sugar, but you need to add it in quantity much less than sugar.

- - For better and faster whipping of the protein, you need to first add a little lemon juice or acetic acid to it. A pinch of salt will also speed up the process of whipping egg whites.

- - It is better to take apples for making a pie, not sweet, but sour or sweet and sour varieties. For example, Seveninku or Granny Smith. Such a variety as Antonovka is ideal for our apple biscuit, it not only has an amazing smell, but also quickly becomes soft in the dough during baking and therefore serves as a wonderful filling. In no case do not take such varieties of apples as Jonathan, Jonagold, Golden for making apple biscuit. These varieties of apples are created only for food, but not for baking, as they harden during baking dough.
