This recipe is from a friend’s wife, who is from Belarus. She made this for me and I fell in love with it! It has just the right amount of sweetness to it, has an awesome tooth and crumb…can’t give it enough praise. She and her husband JUST translated the recipe for me today, so I thought I would share it with everyone…
Amount Ingredient 2 Eggs 1 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Flour 125 Grams Butter 1/2 Cup Potato Starch 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract 3 TBSP Sour Cream 4 Small Green Apples, peeled and thinly sliced Powdered sugar for sifting on top of finished tort
Preheat oven to 375* F. Mix together everything EXCEPT for the apples. Pour half the batter in a greased and floured springform pan. Spread the apple slices evenly on top of batter, then pour remaining batter on top. Bake for 50 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before releasing sides of pan and turn out on cooling rack to finish cooling. When tort is completely cool, sift powdered sugar on top. (Make sure it is completely cool before sifting powdered sugar…if not the powdered sugar will melt on top). Enjoy!
For those of you without scales to measure the butter…125 grams of butter is roughly equal to 1/2 cup + 1 TBSP
