Servings and Ingredients

¼ c. margarine
½ c. brown sugar
½ c. white sugar
8 apples, left whole, peeled and cored
chopped walnuts
juice of 1 lemon
5 large eggs, separated
5 tbsp. white sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
4 tbsp. sifted potato starch


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place margarine, brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar in the bottom of a deep round oven-proof pan large enough to hold the apples comfortably. Place pan in oven until the margarine melts.
  3. Arrange the whole cored apples upright over the sugar sauce. Fill the openings with walnuts and raisins. Pour the juice of 1 lemon over the apples.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, until the apples are tender.
  5. To prepare the batter, beat the egg yolks with 5 tablespoons sugar in a large mixing bowl until mixture is very light. Add 1 teaspoon lemon juice and sifted potato starch.
  6. In a separate clean bowl, with clean beaters, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold beaten egg whites into egg yolk mixture. Pour the batter over the hot apples.
  7. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes, or until the cake tests done.
  8. Place cake on a wire rack for 10 minutes to cool. Turn cake out, upside down, onto a large cake plate. Serve cold.
