Preparation

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is smooth. Add the softened butter and milk, then add the flour and baking powder. Beat the mixture well, adding more milk if necessary. Dice two apples and slice two others. Add the two diced apples to the mixture. Beat the egg whites until stiff and embed them into the mixture. Pour the mixture into a greased and floured cake tin. Cover with apple slices, arranging them in a radial pattern. Add some more flakes of butter. Bake at 180°C for 40 minutes.

Tips
This apple cake can be stored, in a classic cake holder, for 3-4 days and it will stay moist. To make it even more tasty you can sprinkle with icing sugar, but always wait until the cake is well cooled otherwise the sugar will be absorbed. As an alternative to icing sugar you can add cane sugar.
Trivia
It’s a classic cake made all over the world, and is the one Snow White was preparing in the fairy tale for the seven dwarves. For this cake you should use Fuji or Golden Delicious apples, which are the most flavourful and ideal for a cake of this kind.
