apples, 2 large
lemon, 1
flour, 2 cups
sugar, 2 cups
butter, 2 tablespoon
eggs, 2
baking powder, a teaspoon
milk, 1 glass
a pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 356° F.
Melt the butter (in a double boiler or in the micro-wave).
Squeeze the lemon zest and grate its skin.
Wet and wring well a sheet of baking paper, which you will use to bake the cake.
Peel the apples, cut into wedges, deprive them of the core and cut into very thin slices.
Work the eggs until having a cream and add 100 gr of sugar. Add the sieved flour, zest and lemon juice, a pinch of salt and continue to beat with a whisk until the mixture is smooth and homogeneous. While stirring constantly, pour slowly milk at room temperature and the baking powder.
At this point the dough will be very liquid, but do not worry, it’s normal.
Spread the mixture into the pan covered with parchment paper and distribute the apple slices. Cover them with the remaining sugar and the melted butter. Bake for one hour in an oven preheated to 356°F.
Serve at room temperature.
