Don't get caught off guard by the title of this recipe. This dessert is very different than most American cakes. The abundant amount of apples are coated with a minimal amount of batter which is made of yeast and whipped egg whites.

A touch of cinnamon and a powdered sugar glaze enhances the results of this unusual but delicious Italian "cake."
2 large egg yolks
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
Pinch of salt
1/6 oz dried yeast
1/4 cup milk
2 lb apples, peeled and thinly sliced
2 large egg whites
Apple Cake Recipe at
Butter a 10-inch diameter cake pan. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Beat the egg yolks in a large bowl. Mix in the flour, sugar, salt, yeast and milk. Add the apples and stir to coat. Using an electric mixer with clean dry beaters, whip the egg whites in another large bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the apple mixture.

Immediately transfer the mixture to the prepared cake pan and bake until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out dry, about 45 minutes.

Allow to cool before serving.

I wanted to like this, but it wasn't what I was expecting. It came out overly moist with a bit of an eggy taste - almost like an apple frittata. I cooked it for 50 minutes, and a skewer came out clean, but it just never firmed up well. It kind of flopped out of the pan and broke apart easily. I had planned to bring it to share at work but didn't think it was worthy. I will say that it did not look as dark as the cake in the picture. I will try again, cooking it longer, as I really want it to work. :) It had all the promise of being right up my alley - light ingredients, not too sweet, fruit based. Sigh.
