Upside-Down Apple Pie Sharlotka
Easy-to-make recipe :)

  1. Beat the eggs with 1 cup of granulated sugar; add flour, sour cream, and baking soda.
  2. Peel and core the apples, take out the seeds, and cut into pieces.
  3. Grease a round baking pan, sprinkle it with semolina or grounded bread crumbs; place the apples into the pan, sprinkle them with granulated sugar (to taste: ~1/2 cup).
  4. Pour the dough on top of the apples, spreading evenly to coat.
  5. Bake at 375-400 F about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. When the pie is ready, turn it upside down onto a plate, and sprinkle with powdered or granulated sugar. Enjoy with tea or coffee.
