Hi, I am Ilona from IlonaPaperPassion. I have a perfect apple cake recipe for the Fall season.  

Apple Cake
Ingredients (All ingredients has to be at room temperature):
Cake Layer:
2 1/2 cup flour
2 Teaspoons baking powder
2 butter sticks (about 8oz. total)
1/3 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
3 Teaspoons half and half
pinch of salt
Apple Layer:
3 lbs. apples
2 packages of 3oz. Jell-O Gelatin (color orange or yellow)
Top Layer (meringue):
4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
Cake Layer:
Mix flour with butter and baking powder. Add sugar, egg yolks, half & half and pinch of salt. Combine all ingredients together very well with your hands. Prepare a 13 x 9 pan. Lay nicely the cake with your hands on the bottom of the pan. Set aside for awhile.
Apple Layer:
Wash and peel the apples. Shred all of them and put in the cooking pan. Add 2 packages of dry gelatin to them and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes until gelatin will dissolve. Add apples on the top of the cake.
Top Layer (meringue):
In a medium bowl whip egg whites on lower speed with mixer. Start adding sugar gradually and mix all the time; raise the speed of mixer. Whip the egg whites until smooth and thickened into a shiny meringue. Add the meringue on the top of the apples.
Bake at 350F for 40 minutes, after this time turn off the heat and leave the apple cake inside, after 30 minutes open slightly the door of the stove, give another 30 minutes. After this time you can take out the cake.
