I think this cake is lovely served with some kind of caramel ice-cream and caramel ice-cream topping. I chose caramel praline crunch frozen yogurt.
serves 12 ( 5 points + )
- ¾ c. sugar
- 1/4c. water
- 3 c. apples, peeled and sliced
- 1-⅓ c. flour
- 1-½ tsp. baking powder
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ⅔ c. sugar
- 3 T. butter, softened
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ½ c. skim milk
- 3 egg whites
Preheat oven to 350 and coat a 9" round cake pan with nonstick spray.
Tp prepare topping, combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved, then continue to cook until mixture is golden about 5 minutes). Do NOT stir during this time. Pour mixture into cake pan and tilt to cover bottom. Top with sliced apples in concentric circles. Layer apples until you have used all of them.
For cake, mix dry ingredients in a small bowl. In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients alternately with milk.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until still peaks form. Fold into cake batter. Spread batter over apples. Bake for 35minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Loosen edges of cake with a knife and invert onto a serving plate.
