"A Sharlotka is a Russian apple cake that is very light and fluffy. This cake is quick and easy to make. The texture is soft and airy and the cake is balanced with the perfect amount of tartness from the apples.
It is homey but perfect enough for company."
Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease the bottom and side of an 8-inch springform pan.
In a large bowl, toss the apples with the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the sugar and let stand for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the flour with the cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the almond extract and the remaining 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar at medium-high speed until thick and pale yellow and a ribbon forms when the beaters are lifted, 8 to 10 minutes.
Gently fold in the dry ingredients just until incorporated.
Spread the apples in the prepared pan in an even layer, then pour the batter evenly over them. Let stand for 5 minutes to allow the batter to sink in a little.
Bake the sharlotka for about 1 hour, until it is golden and crisp on top and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
Transfer to a rack and let rest for 15 minutes.
Unmold and transfer to a serving platter. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve warm.

What a beautiful cake FEM, it was perfection. Soft, tender and airy (sponge cake) with a meringue like crust. The apples were wonderful tart and tangy, slightly sweet.
We are moving so I was unable to make this in a spring form pan: I used a round glass pan, it worked great. Thank you for sharing a new family favorite.
Perfect Fall cake, light, not to sweet and lovely tang from the apples. So easy to put together, made as directed and will be making again
This is a very delicate, airy cake! The batter is silky smooth, the flavour is sweet with undertones of cinnamon and nutmeg. Really like that there is no fat or leavening outside of the eggs and the technique is quick and easy. We enjoyed this cake with a cuppa! Thanks for sharing! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
