Step 2/4

  • 200 heavy cream

Bring cream to a boil, then remove pot from the stove. Add chocolate and stir well until melted. Set aside.

  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 eggs

Whisk butter, sugar, and salt until creamy. Add eggs individually and continue to whisk. Next, add the chocolate-cream and flour mixtures, and stir well to combine.

Step 4/4

Wash and peel apples. Cut to personal preference—thin slices, for example. Fold into cake batter. Transfer batter to springform pan. Bake at 150°C/300°F (convection) for approx. 1 h. As baking time may vary from oven to oven, make sure you test cake for doneness. Insert wooden skewer into cake. If skewer comes out clean, cake is done. I serve it with caramel sauce and brittle.
