Weeknight Baking: Apple Sharlotka

It has been snowy around Seattle the past few days, which has made me want to avoid icy roads, and instead camp out inside my cozy house with the heat blaring, and comfort foods a'cooking on the stove. Feeling inspired to keep up with my resolution to bake more, I attempted this recipe for apple sharlotka, a Russian apple cake. The cake is essentially a pan full of tart apple chunks, with a batter poured over the top.

Despite the fact that my version didn't turn out as compact and cake-like as Smitten Kitchen's, it was quite tasty! If you're a fan of tart apple pies - this is a dessert for you.

I made this same sharlotka recipe last week. Yours only looks different because your pan was too big. I will say that mine got this almost brulee-like crunch layer on the top. Was yours crunchy at all? All around, this recipe is divine. Best served day-of. Of course, I'm not ashamed to eat leftovers the next day if you can manage not to eat it all at once!
