    Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : Zz- Passover (Cakes)

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    8 firm apples -- peeled, cored and
    5 tablespoons margarine
    3/4 cup sugar -- divided
    3 large egg yolks
    4 egg whites
    1 Pinch salt
    3/4 cup golden raisins
    1 cup matzo meal
    4 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3 tablespoons sliced almonds
    3/4 cup confectioner's sugar, (make your own)
    3 teaspoon lemon juice

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9-inch
    spring form pan and dust with cake meal.

    On medium heat, melt 2 T margarine in a
    heavy 11-inch saute pan. Cook apples, stirring
    often as they exude their juices. Evaporate most
    juices, don't scorch. Spoon into a large bowl,
    coarsely mash apples. Add remaining margarine and 1/2 cup
    cup sugar or to taste. Cool briefly. Stir in egg yolks
    and raisins.

    With mixer on low speed, beat egg whites until foamy,
    add salt, increase speed and beat until stiff but not
    dry. Fold whites into the apple mixture in two
    additions. Combine matzo meal, 1/4 cup sugar and
    cinnamon. Sprinkle half cup of mixture into prepared
    pan. Spoon half the apple mixture into prepared pan,
    spread with all but 4T matzo meal mixture. Spread
    remaining apples, top with matzo meal mixture and
    sliced almonds. Bake until golden and firm to the
    touch, about 45 to 50 minutes. Cool.

    Combine confectioner's sugar, lemon juice to taste and
    1-tsp. water. Drizzle on cooled cake.
