Recipe by smile8115

This recipe came from pure experimentation. My boyfriend is a sweet tooth, and we always have apples in my house, so one day, I decided to make an attempt at baking an apple charlotte. The final recipe is a hit with my boyfriend and my family. The apple charlotte is also delicious with dried cranberries and/or pine nuts. The charlotte may be served warm with ice cream or cold as an any time dessert.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and thoroughly butter a 10 inch casserole pan.
  2. Wash, peel, core, and quarter the apples. Cut each quarter into six slices and arrange the slices into the casserole pan.
  3. Separate the eggs. In a mixing bowl, beat together egg whites and sugar on slow speed, adding one yolk at a time until you get a homogeneous mixture.
  4. Add the first half of the flour into the eggs and sugar, then in a teaspoon, mix together the baking soda and vinegar and add that to the mixture. Stir in the remainder of the flour, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  5. Pour the batter over the apples in an even layer. If desired, a sprinkling of dried cranberries and/or pine nuts can be added. Start the baking process on the lowest rack of the oven to allow the apples to bake, and move the charlotte to a higher rack to finish the baking process. The charlotte is ready when it has a light-brown color and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean and dry.
