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.
