…for apple sponge cake:
Preheat the oven to 200 °C (top/bottom heat). Line a baking tray with parchment paper, possibly also place a baking frame on the baking tray. Mix 500 grams of flour with 2 teaspoons of baking powder and set aside. Melt butter on the stove or in the microwave. Core the apples, peel if necessary & then cut into pieces, wedges or slices with a knife.
Next, beat 5 eggs, 250 grams melted butter, 150 grams sugar, 150 milliliters milk & a pinch of salt with a mixer for 2 – 3 minutes until fluffy. Then add the prepared flour and baking powder mixture, mix in briefly with a mixer & then transfer the batter on the prepared baking sheet & smooth out evenly.
Top the batter with the prepared apple pieces & then place the tray in the preheated oven for 30 – 45 minutes until the surface has turned golden brown & the cake is completely baked, it is best to test with a chopstick.
Take the finished apple pie out of the oven, allow to cool down a bit & then cut into pieces & best serve while still warm. Have fun baking!
Tip: The best way to serve the apple pie is with whipped cream, vanilla sauce or vanilla ice cream. Alternatively, just sprinkle some powdered sugar over it.
