Apple Sharlotka

I've followed the blog Smitten Kitchen for a couple of years, but until now hadn't actually tried any of the recipes, even though they all look amazing. Her photos of this cake are much more appetizing, so I recommend visiting her site to get the recipe.

This is a dense, super-moist Russian apple cake. What made me want to try it was seeing how many apples were put into it (6). There is no butter or oil in the recipe, but because there are so many apples, the batter absorbs the juices and stays moist without all the fat. I can definitely see myself making this more often.
