Instructions

Prepare the apples

Peel 3 apples, cut into quarters, remove the core and seeds, and cut them into thin slices.

Put apples into the pan without oil, add 30 g of sugar, mix. Fry over medium heat until soft and then add 20 g of butter and a pinch of salt. Fry until golden brown for 3-4 minutes, leave to cool.

Prepare the dough

Separate the egg whites from the yolks; eggs should be at room temperature. Put the yolks in a large bowl, add 120 g of sugar, and 1 tbsp of almond extract, beat with a mixer until the dough is lush (it takes about 15 minutes).

Melt 125 g of butter in a water bath and leave to cool.
Slightly heat 500 ml of milk, no need to boil, the milk should be warm.

Add warm (NOT HOT) melted butter to the mixture of eggs and sugar, continuing to mix. Sift 115 grams of flour with a pinch of salt. Add to the dough, continuing to beat. After the dough becomes homogeneous, add warm (NOT HOT) milk.

Beat the egg whites to a dense foam, using a mixer, gradually add the whites into the dough, gently stirring from bottom up.

Making the cake

Preheat the oven to 160C degrees.

Put the baking paper on the bottom of the form (18x24cm, or 20-22 cm in diameter), then grease the paper and the sides of the form, sprinkle with some flour. Put the apples on the bottom of the form, gently pour the dough on the apples.

Bake the cake for 55-60 minutes at 160C degrees. Remove the cake from the oven and leave it cool completely at room temperature.

Pass the knife near the cake borders (if necessary), turn the cake upside down on a plate, remove the paper.

Making the caramel

Heat 140 ml of whipping cream, add 1 tsp almond extract.

Pour 70 ml of water into a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Gradually add 140 g of sugar, over low heat, stirring constantly.
*Add a new portion of sugar when the previous sugar has dissolved.
When the sugar is completely dissolved, cover with a lid, increase the heat and let it boil for 1-2 minutes, the color should turn golden.
*Watch the caramel – it will overheat and become bitter in just a few seconds.

When the caramel turns golden, carefully add a thin stream of hot cream, continuing to stir. Remove from heat; add 3 tsp of butter.

Making apple roses

Remove the core from an apple, cut it into very thin slices, dry in the oven at 80°C for one hour. Make four roses from dried apple slices.

Fry almond petals on medium heat for 2-3 minutes, in a frying pan, stirring constantly. Chop with a knife.

Pour the warm caramel on the cake, smoothen. Cut off the edges of the cake, sprinkle with almond petals, and decorate with roses.
