Your Family Will Love This Easy Apple Cake!

Traditional charlotte russe is an elegant molded dessert set off by lady fingers positioned vertically around the perimeter (in fact, there are special pans designed to achieve this culinary piece of architecture.

A Russian Charlotte (Sharlotka), though, is much simpler to make, does not require a special pan, is delicious and is similarly impressive due to its light, airy appearance. The word "Russe" is French for "Russian," so the dessert name is slightly redundant, but no matter - the flavor will capture your taste buds, no matter what the name!

Some people refer to this dessert as a Russian apple pie because its single-layered profile, especially when prepared in a springform pan, resembles a pie. However, it requires very little flour (so does not have the carbohydrates found in pie crust) and once removed from the pan, it stands alone, like a cake.

The recipe can be made denser with fruit by adding more apples. When the eggs are beaten until very frothy, the crust or cake part of the dessert almost has the consistency of meringue.

For the best 'effect,' use a springform pan. Charlotte Russe with lady fingers can be made in a molded pan (both are shown here), but don't hesitate to use whatever baking pan you have on hand - it will still taste great!

Use Fresh Apples

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 55 min
Yields: Serves eight

Ingredients

  • 3 Apples (tart, such as Granny Smith), Thinly sliced (if you have an apple corer and peeler, it will go more quickly!)
  • 1/2 Lemon, (Juice only)
  • 3 Eggs, Can use egg substiture (will not be as frothy)
  • 1 Cup (236.6 grams) Sugar
  • 1 Cup (236.6 grams) Flour, (All-purpose)
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda, Can reduce or increase amount
  • Oil or Butter, For greasing pan
  • One Charlotte Russe Molded Pan (a Springform Pan will also work!)
  • Cooling Rack
  • Optional Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, For topping

Basic Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (150 degrees Celsius; Gas Mark 4)
  2. Peel apples and remove the cores. If desired, slice into thin half-moon shapes. If you prefer diced shapes, that's fine, too. Sprinkle with lemon juice and toss to cover (the result should be a burst of tart flavor into your mouth before you taste the sweetness of the apple).
  3. Beat eggs with hand or countertop mixer until they're frothy (or whisk by hand).
  4. Add sugar gradually, mixing thoroughly so granules will blend well.
  5. Add flour and scant amount of baking soda, and combine to form batter.
  6. Generously oil or butter the springform pan (or other baking pan). If desired, arrange apples in circular layers, otherwise, place cut apples in the pan.
  7. Pour batter over apples, allowing to seep between spaces.
  8. Bake about 30-45 minutes (check at 25-30 minutes by inserting a toothpick)
  9. Allow to cool completely before removing the springform or (if baked in a skillet) turning onto a platter.
  10. Cut, Serve, and Enjoy! You'll love this moist, tender cake!
  11. If desired, top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. But this cake is so luscious, it doesn't need any extras!

Variations for This Recipe

This recipe is given in the traditional amounts and has been a standard 'quick dessert' choice in Russia for many generations. When prepared as described here, it is very sweet (possibly sweeter than you may prefer).

If you're a fan of Downton Abbey, you may have seen elegant desserts like this one. Downton Abbey dining is done in the European tradition and the series' historians add authentic touches in the dishes served, the place settings and costumes.

A traditional version of this recipe uses lady fingers to line the pan (see the video here for tips).

How to Vary This Recipe:

You may wish to adjust some ingredients to adapt to your family's taste or for diet preferences. Here are some suggestions:

  • Reduce the amount of sugar: This will change the overall texture of the cake, but it still tastes good.
  • Add a dash of cinnamon to the apple mixture or when you mix the batter. This will give it more of an apple pie flavor (but the cake tastes excellent without this addition).
  • Use egg whites or egg substitute: The end result may not be as 'light' as the original, but will still hold together and retain flavor.
  • Experiment by adding peaches or another fruit to the apple mixture. You may have to adjust baking times, or add more flour if you use moist fruit.
  • Try using pears rather than apples!

Note: Some versions of this recipe call for four eggs rather than three, or for quite a few more apples. Because the recipe has a heritage of being a standby standard, people have adapted it to fit what they had on hand or the number of people expected for dinner. Feel free to experiment and create a version you and your family will love.

Serving Suggestions

Charlotte Russe makes a great table presentation by itself, but you can also add a few things to make it more interesting.

  1. Serve with hot coffee or hot tea. This recipe begs for a steaming cup of after-dinner coffee.
  2. Serve warm with ice cream. Yes, this is an American tradition, but I guarantee it will be a hit with any diner. This cake is delicious when still warm from the oven, and reheats well, too.
  3. Top with fresh whipped cream. Perfectly chilled and freshly whipped mounds of real cream will complement this dessert beautifully. Since whipped cream is rich and the dessert is sweet, you can cut down (or perhaps even avoid) the sugar you might normally add.
  4. Offer an after dinner brandy or liquor to guests. Since the cake is sweet, choose an aperitif that won't conflict. A fruit brandy can be used successfully.
  5. Serve with a fresh slice or spoonful of the fruit used in the recipe. If you're making the apple version. keep a few slices to one side (sprinkled with lemon juice to retain the color), and garnish the plate or top with fresh fruit just before serving. For the lemon version, a sliver of fresh citrus will look great.
  6. Sprigs of mint. Yes - that's almost a dining cliché, but they do dress up a plate!

      I hope you enjoy it, Audrey! It's rich (sweet), but so good! The apples give it a great texture. After reading your comment, I am considering playing with the extra flavors (lemon, or other additions), since the apple cake provides such a good base.

      Ah, Marcy, you've hit my yummy dessert spot...anything apple or lemon. This recipe is just too good not to try. I'm so looking forward to whipping these two recipes up.

      No dieting for me this next week. :)

      Hi, PeachPurple - I hope you try making it - the cake is heavenly. My only warning is that it's very (very!) sweet as it is written, so you might want to adjust the sugar here and there. The apples are standard cooking apples - they are just the ones with green skins.

      Hi Marcy,

      When I first commented on this recipe I had not yet joined Pinterest. Going to pin this to my cake and sweet breads board. We are having dinner guests over this weekend. I am thinking that this would be a good dessert. Also giving this a share.

      Hi, Heidi! I can't wait to hear how the cake turned out for you - and I think coconut sugar would be a heavenly variation! Thanks for the info on the temp - I need to check the information I had on it and make that change here.

      Thanks for your comments! Enjoy the cake!

      I have two in the oven now! one following your recipe, and one substituting coconut sugar and spelt flour to make it even healthier. I'm in Australia and it's a cold spring day, so apple cake sounds perfect for dessert.

      Just a heads up , 350 fahrenheit is around about 180 celcius... not 150 as stated above. that 30 degrees makes quite the difference in celcius, so it is important. :)

      This Charlotte Russe looks so pretty! I was about to tell you that you left out the number of eggs in the ingredient list when I saw it further down in a text capsule. No oil or shortening, other than greasing the pan, would cut down on unhealthy fats. We have some Pink Lady apples in the house right now. It if is a very sweet dessert, the Granny Smith apples would probably be a better foil against the sweetness. Up, useful and interesting votes. Will keep this in mind for serving to company! Thanks!

      That's an interesting question, Austinstar - I'm not certain how Fuji apples perform in baking. The best baking apples are crisp and tart, and don't fall apart as easily when cooked. FYI - this recipe is very (very) sweet - so you will likely not notice the zest of the lemon juice. You can always leave it out (it won't hurt the recipe to leave it out), and experiment with different types of apples. Hope you find a mixture you like!

It really does look a little more airy than a traditional apple pie. (By the way, isn't Charlotte Russe also the name of a clothing store? Strange if it is.) Thanks again.
