How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Butter a 9-inch springform pan

- Using a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the eggs on high speed until pale and very thick - about 8-10 minutes
- While the eggs are whipping, brown the butter.
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan ( it will foam ) and cook it until the butter browns and smells nutty (about 6 to 8 minutes), then set aside
- Add the sugar to the eggs and whip a few minutes more.
- Add the flour mixture and brown butter alternaetly
- Whisk until just barely combined , so as not to deflate the batter
- Pour into prepared pan.
- Sprinkle the apples and chocolate chips over the top, and bake until the cake is golden brown and springs back to the touch, about 40 to 50 minutes or a tester comes out clean.
- Note: apple and chips will sink and disperse through the batter.
