Cooking charlotte with apples on sour cream:
Step 1: prepare the oven and baking dish.
The first thing we do is turn on and preheat the oven up to 180 degrees Celsius. Then we choose a suitable baking dish, if it is heat-resistant glass, then we lubricate its bottom and the inner sides of the walls with butter. Using metal non-stick cookware? In this case, we process its surface not only with fat, but we also crush it with a thin layer of wheat flour or simply cover it with baking paper.
Step 2: prepare the apples.
Then we wash the right amount of apples under streams of cold running water and dry them with paper kitchen towels to prevent excess moisture. Using a sharp knife, cut each fruit into 2 halves, remove the core with stones from them and, if desired, remove the peel from the pulp. We spread it on a cutting board and chop it into small pieces up to 5-8 millimeters thick, it can be cubes, layers, rings, half rings, rhombuses, or the shape that you like more.
Step 3: prepare the dough.
Next, break the raw chicken egg into a deep bowl and add granulated sugar to it.
Beat them in any convenient way at high speed until the grains are completely dissolved, as well as increase the mixture by 2-2.5 times. This can be done using a mixer, a submersible blender with a nozzle specially designed for this purpose, or an ordinary whisk. Of course, the time spent on this process will vary depending on the choice of kitchen appliance, starting from 5-7 and ending with 10-12 minutes.
When the mass becomes almost snow-white and quite lush, put sour cream and vanilla sugar in it. Shake them at medium speed for a few minutes until smooth and then sift through a sieve with a fine mesh food baking powder together with a glass of premium wheat flour. Knead a liquid, viscous dough without lumps, reminiscent of a thick cream in consistency, and proceed to the next step.
Step 4: form and bake charlotte with apples on sour cream.
We distribute half the sliced apples at the bottom of the prepared baking dish in an even layer and fill them with 1/2 of the dough.
On top of it we again lay out the remaining chopped fruits, but this time in an artistic mess or figured, as you like, and cover them with the rest of the semi-finished flour from the bowl.
We put still raw dessert in an oven preheated to the desired temperature on an average rack and bake 35-40 minutes. After this time, we check its readiness with a wooden kitchen skewer. We introduce its end to the edge of the pie, so that it pierces only the dough, not the apples. If there are wet clumps left on the stick, then leave the pie in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
When the dough is baked, we pull the kitchen gloves on our hands, rearrange the forum with the aromatic yummy on a cutting board previously laid on the countertop and allow its contents to cool to room temperature without taking it out.
After that, using two ordinary or one wide kitchen spatula, we move the beautiful charlotte to a large flat dish, decorate it with any decor if desired and serve it.
Step 5: serve the charlotte with apples on sour cream.
Charlotte with apples on sour cream is quite lush, very fragrant and very tasty. After baking, the cake is completely cooled, transferred to a large flat dish and, if you really want, decorated with icing sugar, favorite creams or syrups based on berries or fruits. Then, with a clean knife, divide into portioned pieces, distribute them on dessert plates and serve on a sweet table with fresh hot or cold drinks, such as tea, coffee, yogurt, juice, kefir and many others.

- some housewives before laying apples in a form, sprinkle them with cinnamon to taste, as well as a small amount of vanilla sugar, and if the fruits are too sweet, they are watered with one or two tablespoons of fresh, only squeezed lemon juice;
- A good alternative to a food baking powder for dough is a teaspoon of soda slaked with 9% table vinegar, but this is only if you normally tolerate the smell of these ingredients;
- very often apples are replaced or supplemented with finely chopped peaches, not very juicy plums, pears, bananas, apricots and even very thinly sliced quinces;
- sometimes walnuts or orange or lemon peels, crushed into crumbs, are put in the dough, each of them individually gives the finished baking its pleasant zest.
