Making Charlotte "Easy":
Step 1: knead the dough.
First of all, you need to shake the eggs with sugar well. Therefore, break them into the bowl for the mixer, pour sugar in the same place and mix everything at maximum speed until a white and sufficiently thick foam is formed. Transfer the resulting mass into a deep bowl and gradually add the flour. This is best done in portions by sifting the bulk ingredient through a sieve. Thoroughly mix all the components together. You should get a liquid, similar to pancake dough, a mass without flour lumps.
Step 2: peel the apples.
Stack fresh apples in the sink and rinse them with warm running water to clean the dirt. It is especially important to pay attention to this stage if you use purchased apples, because everyone knows that they are specially treated with chemicals so that they are not susceptible to various diseases and insects.
After washing, apples must be peeled with an ordinary kitchen or special knife. Cut clean fruits into halves and remove from them the kernels with seeds, as well as cut the stalks. Then chop the apples into thin slices or small cubes, depending on your desire. But, the larger the pieces, the less soft they end up being.
Step 3: bake charlotte.
Pre-set the oven to heat up 180-190 degrees Celsius. Prepare the split mold by lubricating it with a little butter. Gently lay the apple slices, laying them in a spiral towards the center. Do not worry if it turns out that your fruits are lying on top of each other in layers, as it should be. Pour the dough into the mold, trying to evenly distribute it between the fruit slices.
Place the pie in the oven and bake it for 30-40 minutes. You can check readiness with a wooden skewer. Choose a place where one sponge cake without apples and poke, if the skewer is dry and without pieces of dough at the exit, then the cake is ready, if not, then bake the dessert further. It may suddenly turn out that on top the charlotte began to burn, and inside it is still damp, then it may be worthwhile to slightly reduce the temperature and increase the cooking time.
After baking, do not rush, carefully remove the cake from the oven and wait a bit until it cools down, only then remove it from the mold and serve it on the table.
Step 4: serve the charlotte.
Charlotte “Easy” is served at the table as a dessert. Just cut it into portioned slices as usual. You can also lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar or garnish with whipped cream, sour cream. In the end, just brew your favorite tea and start eating.
