Poached Cinnamon Apple Cake - Kolac od jabuka

Light and spongy and perfect for winter days.

4 eggs
4 table spoons of sugar
4 table spoons of flour
1 sachet baking powder

For the filling:

3-4 green apples
100-150g tablespoons of sugar
Vanilla pudding (see note below)


In a large bowl which the egg whites first until soft peak form. Add sugar spoon by spoon until you get a glossy texture. Add the egg yolks one by one and then the flower spoon by spoon. Add the baking powder. Pour in a medium sized baking and bake on 180C for 20-25 minutes.

Meanwhile peel the apples and slice them. Use a medium sized pot and add 500ml of water, add sugar, apples and cinnamon to your liking. bring to the boil and then simmer until the apples are poached and soft.

Once your sponge base has cooled place apples on top and pour over the vanilla Pudding.

For the vanilla pudding - add 50ml of milk and dissolve in a measuring cup. Add that mixture to 200ml of boiling milk and stir constantly so that no lumps form. Your mixture needs to be fairy runny.

Once this has cooled decorate as desired, above I used cake icing mixture and chocolate icing to decorate. An alternative can be marzipan.

Happy baking :)

Note: Vanilla pudding can be purchased at your local Delicattesen it is similar to a custard texture but unlike custard it sets.
