Put sugar with yolks in a bowl. Put egg whites aside.

Add oil, half of the milk and mix with a whisk.
Sieve all dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon and salt) and put them in a casserole. Add the already mixed liquid ingredients and the remaining milk. Mix with a whisk until smooth and homogenous.
Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold in delicately. Pour the dough into a cake pan with about 24 cm in diameter lined with baking paper.
Wash the Golden Delicious apples, cut them into slices or as you prefer and arrange on the surface.
