Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with unsalted butter and dust with flour, patting out excess.
Using a hand mixer, beat eggs and yolk with vanilla on high speed in a large bowl, adding sugar a little at a time until sugar is entirely incorporated and eggs are light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Whisk together the 6 Tbsp flour, baking powder, and salt; fold into the egg mixture along with apple and nuts until ingredients are combined.
Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.
Bake torte in center of the oven until torte is browned on top and a toothpick inserted into its center comes out clean, 35-45 minutes.
Cool torte 5 minutes.
Serve torte with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream; garnish with apple slices and finely chopped nuts.
