---Apple Layer---
5  large  apples, sliced thin
6    dried apricot halves, coarsely minced
1/4  cup  sugar
1  tsp  cinnamon

3    eggs, separated
3/4  cup  matzoh cake meal
3/4  cup  sugar
1/3  cup  oil
2  tsp  vanilla
1  Pinch  salt
2  tsp  finely grated lemon zest

1/3  cup  walnuts, finely chopped
2  tsp  cinnamon
1/2  tsp  sugar

1. Toss apples with sugar and cinnamon. Set apples and apricots aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, lemon zest, matzoh meal and oil. Blend until smooth. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with pinch of salt until stiff and glossy. Loosen batter with generous dollop of egg whites, then fold remaining egg whites into batter.

3. Spoon half of batter into greased 9-inch springform pan. Arrange apples on top. Dot with minced apricot and cover with remaining batter. Batter will be thick and sticky; don't worry about spreading it evenly.

4. Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over cake batter. Bake 50 to 55 minutes at 350 degrees F.
