What apples for sharlotka with cinnamon?
Sour apples are best for the recipe, just like for the invisible apple cake. They complement the sweet sponge cake very well.
Also, you should choose a crisp apple variety. Then the apple pieces won’t fall apart so quickly during baking.
Refined with cinnamon and walnut
With this recipe I have refined the classic sharlotka with cinnamon and walnuts. This gives it a delicate aroma and a special taste.
Thanks to cinnamon, the Russian apple cake tastes sweetly spicy and even more fall, similar to the apple bundt cake with cinnamon. Crunchy walnuts with a subtle hint of caramel combine perfectly with the fluffy pastry and juicy apples.
I baked the sharlotka with cinnamon and walnut in a Ø 20 cm springform tin, just like my yogurt cake and the crustless cheesecake. This made it quite high, but also had to stay in the oven for a long time. The baking time was 50 minutes for me.
For baking the sharlotka is also suitable a springform tin larger in diameter. Take for example a Ø 24 cm baking tin, like for the sour cream plum cake or the beer cake. Your Russian apple cake will be ready faster in it.
This sharlotka with cinnamon is
with a generous portion of fruit,
with lightly caramelized walnuts,
easy and quick to make,
ideal for a tea party with the family.

The sharlotka convinces not only with its taste. Also their simple and quick preparation have made the apple cake so popular. I jazzed up the classic sharlotka with cinnamon and nuts using the recipe you’ll find in the recipe box here at the end of the post.
First, beat eggs with sugar until fluffy. Then, fold in flour with baking powder. Now you stir in melted butter.
Then, peel apples, cut them into small cubes and mix them with the batter. Pour the batter into the baking tin and add thin apple slices and roasted and chopped walnuts. Then sprinkle them with brown sugar.
Bake the Russian apple cake for about 50 minutes, let it cool and dust it with powdered sugar.
How to make sharlotka with cinnamon: tips and tricks
It is best to use sour, crisp apples for the recipe.
You can omit nuts.
Butter in the batter makes the sharlotka even more moist. You can also leave it out.
Instead of a Ø 20 cm springform tin, you can bake the Russian apple cake in a Ø 22 cm or Ø 24 cm springform tin. The larger the baking tin, or the flatter the cake, the shorter the baking time.
