While warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool; re-roll in powdered sugar before serving.

    Here’s an amazing recipes for Russian Apple Cake (Yabluchnyk) it serves about 12, so you may want to make two. Enjoy!


    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 cup butter
    1 egg, beaten
    1/3 cup cream
    4 large apple – peeled, cored and thinly sliced

    Struesel Topping
    2 tablespoons cold butter
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    2 tablespoons flour
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly butter an 8 inch square baking dish. Sift together 1 1/2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut in 1/2 cup of butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir together the egg with the cream and gently mix into the flour until a soft dough has formed. Press into prepared baking dish. Layer the apples into the dish overlapping, in neat rows. Prepare streusel by mixing the brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Cut in 2 tablespoons butter until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake in preheated oven until apples have softened, and topping has browned, about 25 minutes.
