5 Golden Delicious apples, peeled and sliced paper thin
2 eggs, extra large
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
7 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
Powdered sugar for decoration
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter and lightly flour two round pizza pans or a 9×13 lasagne pan.
Beat the eggs and sugar together and add the flour, baking powder, milk, butter and vanilla.
Add the apple slices and pour into the prepared pan.
Place the pan on the bottom of the oven for 10 minutes, then place in the center of the oven to cook until golden, about 1 hour.
Torta di Mele is a very thin, rich cake that will bake down to about one-half inch. It will cut easier if you let it cool before serving.
But you can reheat it in the oven before serving.
