1.Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease deep 1.5-litre (6-cup) 14cm-round ovenproof dish.
2.Peel, core, quarter and slice apples. Combine in medium saucepan with sugar and the water, cover; cook about 10 minutes or until apples are tender.
3.To make sponge topping: Beat eggs in small bowl with electric mixer about 7 minutes or until thick and creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until dissolved after each addition. Fold in sifted flours.
4.Spoon hot apple mixture into prepared dish; spread sponge topping over mixture. Bake about 25 minutes.

Recipe is best made just before serving. It’s important to have the apple mixture as hot as possible before spooning over the sponge topping; the heat from the apple starts the cooking process.
