Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 375F, and grease a 9" x 13" pan. (If you are feeling virtuous, dust it with cake meal, but I never do -- ).
- Peel, slice or grate apples and set aside.
- Beat eggs in mixer for about 5 minutes.
- Beat in sugar and salt, then oil, lemon juice and lemon peel.
- Mix together the cake/matzo meal and the potato starch, and add to the batter, still beating.
- Spoon or pour half of the batter into the greased pan.
- Top with all of the apples and raisins, if desired. (Don't worry, there aren't too many apples!).
- Sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Top with remaining batter, and sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired.
- Bake at 375F for 35-45 minutes (or more).
