1. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Put the egg whites in the fridge. Put the egg yolks and light brown sugar into a bowl. Beat until pale.
2. Combine the milk and butter and microwave at 600W for 30 seconds twice until the mixture is warm to the touch. Blend this with the egg yolk mixture.
3. Sift the cake flour and strong bread flour together into the egg yolk mixture, and mix well until the flour is just combined.
4. Make the meringue. Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites in a bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until bubbly.
5. Add the light brown sugar and beat at high speed with a hand mixer.
6. Continue to beat for 2 to 3 minutes until soft peak forms. Change you hand mixer to a whisk. You can continue to use your hand mixer all the way if you like.
7. Whisk until a stiff peaks form.
8. Blend the egg yolk mixture with the meringue. Add 1/3 of the meringue to the egg yolk mixture and mix with a whisk.
9. Once mixed well, add the remaining half of the meringue and fold it into the egg yolk mixture.
10. Transfer the egg yolk mixture into the meringue bowl. Mix gently with a rubber spatula until any lumps have gone.
11. Chop the caramelised apples finely (Recipe ID: 1913062) and add to the mixture. Blend into the mixture gently.
12. Pour the batter into a chiffon cake tin. Bake at 170°C for 20 minutes first and then lower the oven temperature to 160°C. Bake for another 20 minutes.
13. After baking, place the cake tin upside down and leave to cool. After it is cooled slightly, cover with a plastic bag and leave to cool completely.
14. After cooling completely, run your knife along the sides of the cake tin to remove the cake from the tin. Slice and serve. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if you have any.
