I use Granny Smith apples in this milopita recipe, but if you have a favorite apple you prefer for baking, use it.

  • Combine sliced apples, 1/2 cup white sugar, butter, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Mix together gently, being careful not to break apple slices. Pour sugary juice from the apple mixture into the prepared baking pan. Arrange sliced apples on top in a circle. Sprinkle raisins on top of apples and pour any remaining juice over all.

  • Combine olive oil and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Add egg yolks, flour, grated apples, baking powder, and remaining white sugar. Stir well to combine. Beat egg whites to a light froth in a separate bowl and stir into the olive oil mixture carefully. Pour over the apples in the baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cover cake with foil if the top browns before the cake is done baking.

  • Remove cake from oven and allow to cool, about 30 minutes. Invert cake onto a serving plate.

I made this for dessert on Christmas day for the family. Everyone loved it overall rating was 8.5 out of 10. A couple of people thought it could be a bit more moist although I didn't agree I thought it was perfect. Some thought it would be even better with a dollop of whipped cream. I used a mix of Granny Smith apples and Honey Crisp Apples and used Vietnamese cinnamon (my favorite). I will definitely make it again thanks for the recipe! I didn't have a big enough pan so I made two cakes with what I had and it worked out well. Read More

It s a bit too oily & WAY-too sweet - Even tho i cut the sugar from 2.5 C total to 2 C one in the topping 1 in the cake batter the cake is too too sweet. I will make it again but next time 3/4 C of olive oil & 3/4 C of applesauce in place of the remaining oil should correct the greasy mouth-feel & I will also cut the sugar again - 1 C in the topping 1/2 C in the cake batter. // I also used 1/4 C snipped prunes no raisins on hand & those taste great. I added 2 tsp of apple-cider vinegar to the topping to balance the sweet & that worked fine plus i used ONLY brown sugar in the topping & white in the cake. Overall it s tasty; a bit too oily a bit too sweet but good nonetheless.: ) I am sure it will all be eaten! Read More
