How to Make Russian Sharlotka Cake: Preheat Oven to 340˚F.
Peel and core apples, cut into small dice.
Beat 6 eggs with 1 cup sugar on high speed for 6 minutes until thick and fluffy.
Whisk together 1 1/3 cups flour with a pinch of baking powder. Sift the flour into the foamy egg mixture in three increments, folding it in with a spatula to combine between each addition. Don't overmix.
Fold in the diced apples (reserving 1/2 cup diced apples), just until combined and transfer batter to a greased baking pan. Sprinkle the top with reserved apples and bake at 340˚F for 1 hour. The top will be golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 15 minutes then you can slide a knife around the sides of the cake to loosen it from the pan. Once cake is near room temp, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
