6 medium large eggs
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons vanilla sugar
100ml milk
1kg apples  [🍎]  
Apricot or orange  [🍊]  jam, warmed up in the microwave to brush the cake after baking 


-Mix butter and sugar until it's creamy and soft
- Then mix the eggs in it, one after the other.
- Mix flour and baking powder and put it into the butter,sugar,egg mixture together with the hand warm milk.  Slowly, and stir everything all the time with a wooden spoon. 
- Put this dough on the prepared baking tray which you buttered before.
