What is invisible apple cake?
Gâteau invisible aux pommes, which translates from French as “invisible apple cake”, is a popular fruit cake from France. It consists of several thin apple layers and a pudding-like batter. In fact, it’s more of a dessert that looks like a cake. It is similar with the cake “Monastyrskaya izba”.
Why invisible? The thin apple slices in the cake seem to disappear after baking. You can hardly distinguish them visually from the vanilla pudding. That’s where the name comes from.
Since the batter for the invisible apple cake is runny, a one-piece baking tin is best for it. In a springform tin, it might flow out.
I used a loaf pan to bake the gâteau invisible aux pommes, just as I did for the raisin cake “Stolichny” and the red wine cake. Alternatively, a round one-piece baking tin or a casserole dish will work.
Note that, depending on the size of your tin, the baking time given in the recipe may vary greatly on your end. My invisible apple cake got very high in the loaf pan. Accordingly, it had to stay in the oven for quite a long time. If your gâteau invisible aux pommes is flatter, then it needs to be baked for a much shorter time.
Invisible apple cake is
sweet and sour,
with lots of fruit,
with vanilla pudding instead of dough,
with crunchy almond flakes,
a cute eye-catcher,
easy to make with common ingredients,
perfect for a coffee round during the week or for a party,
