Kitchen scale, teaspoon, tablespoon, oven, non-stick or heat-resistant baking dish (desired diameter from 24 to 26 centimeters), a baking brush, paper kitchen towels, cutting board - 2 pieces, a kitchen knife - 2 pieces, a mixer, a kitchen towel , wide metal kitchen spatula, large flat dish, fine mesh sieve, portioned plate.

Preparation of lush charlotte with apples:

Step 1: prepare the oven, mold and apples.

First, turn on the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Then we take a round non-stick or heat-resistant baking dish with an approximate diameter of 24-26 centimeters and with the help of a baking brush, grease its bottom, as well as the inside of the sides with a thin layer of vegetable oil. Then we wash several ripe sweet and sour apples under streams of cold running water, dry them with paper kitchen towels, using a sharp kitchen knife, take turns cutting each into 2 halves and remove the core with the stalks from them.

If you really want to, remove the peel from the fruit pulp, put the apple parts on a cutting board and chop it with layers, cubes, slices, rings, half rings, rhombuses or as you like. As you can see, the shape of the slices is not very important, the main thing is the thickness of the slices, it is desirable that it fluctuates from 4 to 6-8 millimeters. We send the slices to the baking dish and go on.

Step 2: prepare the dough.

With the back of the knife, we beat each raw chicken egg in turn and send the squirrels with yolks into a deep bowl. Add salt to them, as well as two types of sugar: vanilla and plain white. We put the dishes with these ingredients under the mixer blades and beat them until the volume increases 2-2.5 times. This process will take at least 5-7 minutes, although everything is relative and depends on the power of your kitchen appliance. As soon as the mixture acquires a glossy thick airy homogeneous structure, we extinguish baking soda into it with table vinegar. After that, using a fine mesh sieve, we begin to sift wheat flour, preferably of the highest grade, into the same bowl, at the same time, with a tablespoon, kneading a dough of medium density, with lumps.

When the semi-finished flour reaches the desired homogeneous consistency, fill them with apples, comfortably settled in the form, and slightly level them, so that they lay down in an even layer.

Step 3: bake lush charlotte with apples.

If the oven has warmed up to the desired temperature, put in it the still moist pie on the middle rack and bake for 25-30 minuteswithout opening, otherwise it may settle. After the right time, we look into the oven and check the readiness of the fragrant miracle with a wooden skewer. Just insert its tip into the pulp of charlotte and get it. If there are wet pieces of dough left on the tree, let the cake bake for about another 5-10 minutes.
Is the biscuit ready? Then everything is simple, using a kitchen towel, we move the form with charlotte to a cutting board previously laid on the countertop, and allow the dessert to cool to room temperature. Then with the knife edge, carefully separate the sides of the pie from the sides of the form, gently cutting them in a circle. We lift it with a wide kitchen spatula, move it to a large flat dish, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve on the table.

Step 4: serve lush charlotte with apples.

Lush charlotte with apples is served at room temperature. Before serving, it is optionally decorated with icing sugar, chocolate chips, watered with honey, jam, jam or syrup based on fruits or berries. Then they are divided into 8-10 portions and put on the table along with warm or cold favorite drinks: tea, coffee, juice, yogurt or whatever you like. Enjoy delicious and simple homemade cakes!
