MethodIn large bowl, whisk together 1-1/4 cups of the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; whisk in soda water. Whisk in butter and egg yolks; cover and let stand for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)
In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry peaks form; fold into batter. Place bowl in larger bowl of ice water; let stand until cold, about 15 minutes.
Peel and core apples; cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes. Toss with remaining flour; fold into batter.
