My mom makes it every apple season all the time, and it's great for people like my husband who don't like cinnamon. This is what my family calls apple pie. Goes great for dessert or breakfast.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place egg whites into a mixing bowl with sugar, and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture forms soft peaks. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla.

  • Whisk together the flour with baking powder in a separate bowl, and mix the flour mixture into the beaten egg mixture until just combined.

  • Place butter and apples into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan, and place into oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) to melt the butter. When oven is hot and butter has melted, stir the apples and butter together, and spread out in the pan. Pour the cake batter on top of the butter and apples.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the top is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Loosen the edges of the cake with a spatula, and flip the cake over onto a serving platter to serve. Allow to cool for a few minutes before eating, or serve cool.

easy to prepare and looks pretty - until I dumped it out after 20 min....it was not completely cooked. My fault for not sticking a toothpick in it. Now it's ugly but hopefully will taste ok Read More

My son made this recipe. We sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on it. It would be more delicious with cinnamon sugar and pecans sprinkled across the cake before going into the oven. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly but found I had to bake it longer than 20 minutes to have it cooked through. My husband and I LOVED this simple cake and we couldn't stop eating it! We finished it off for breakfast with coffee. Perfect! Next time I will try to cut down on the amount of butter to see if it turns out well with less fat. Read More
