And squeeze out the juice. Now peel the apples, use your favourite: peel off the skin and cut into pieces and remove the core, of course. Drizzle with the lemon juice to prevent them from browning. And repeat with all the apples. Transfer to a blender, along with the orange juice, including the soaking juice of the raisins. Done! In this way, you can taste the flavour of the apples but you won't see them. Firstly sift the rice flour, the corn starch and the baking powder. Secondly separate the egg whites from the yolks, put the egg yolks in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment and add two thirds of the sugar -- in this case, it's raw sugar -- the butter, that has been melted and allowed to cool, the seeds from a vanilla pod and the lemon zest; turn it on, then add the milk in a thin stream. Add the sifted dry ingredients; this time beat at low speed. Incorporate the flour from the sides of the bowl and mix with the pureed apple mixture. Add half of the raisins and half of the pine nuts. Now beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar until soft peaks form and fold into the mixture. Stir gently to avoid deflating the egg whites, then pour the batter into a cake pan: I'm using a springform pan, 9 ½ inches (24 cm) in diameter, that has been buttered and lined with parchment paper. Finish by adding the remaining fruit: pine nuts and raisins. Bake in a preheated static oven at 350°F (180°C) for about 45 minutes. While it's baking, let's see together the ingredients needed for this recipe.
