The apple pie I propose is very easy to make quickly. It is an inexpensive recipe, and the cake is delicious. The texture is similar to a pudding, and it is delicious in combination with the apples.
- Two eggs
- and a pinch of salt
- 100 gr. of sugar
- Three apples
- 50 ml. lemon juice
- 90 gr. Of flour
- 20 gr. of butter
- 7 gr. Baking powder, grated lemon peel, a teaspoon of vanilla essence
Put the two eggs together in a large bowl with a pinch of salt. They are going to beat until they double their size. Then the sugar is added. Continue beating until well dissolved and the eggs have whitened.
In the next step, the milk and melted but not hot butter are added to the mixture. Lemon zest and vanilla extract are also incorporated until incorporated, a few seconds.
Add the baking powder to the sifted flour and mix. Then the flour is poured over the previous mixture before beating with the rods and stirring to incorporate the flour.
This way, it won’t pop out when the rods are pulled out. Instead, beat low speed until the flour is well integrated into the mixture. Set the bowl aside and then peel the apples.
Then they are cut in half, and the core is removed. Once the apples are clean, they will be grated on the part of the grater where the slices come out. Then, add the lemon juice to the grated apple slices and stir well. In this way, the apples will not oxidise.
Add the apples to the previous mixture. Mix well until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. The oven is preheated to 180ºC or 356ºF with top and bottom heat. If a gas oven is used, it will be put on moderate heat.
The mould has to be lined at the base with baking paper, and the walls are greased with butter. I have used a removable round mould. The measurements of my mould are 18 cm in diameter and 5 cm high.
Next, pour the cake mixture into the mould. The entire surface is levelled and then taken to the oven. Baking time is approximately 40-45 minutes. Depending on each oven, it may take more or less.
After 40 minutes, the toothpick test is done. If the toothpick comes out clean, it means the cake is ready.
Once it is baked, take the baked apple pie out of the oven and leave it in the mould for about 5 minutes. Then the ring is removed from the mould, and the cake or cake that I cooled is left at room temperature.
Once cold, place a plate on top and turn it over to remove the paper from the base. Then the plate is placed where it will be served and turned over again. Now you can sprinkle icing sugar on top, and our cake is ready to enjoy.
Cut a good piece and savour it. You will surely love it. It is an easy dessert ideal for any occasion or when we fancy something sweet and rich.
fine apple pie
- For two persons:
- One sheet of puff pastry
- Two apples
- Two teaspoons butter
- Four teaspoons of sugar
- Two tablespoons of apricot jam
- mint leaves
- For the oven plate:
- One teaspoon butter
- One tablespoon of flour
Grease the plate with a little butter. Spread the puff pastry sheet on the board, cut two elongated triangles and place them on the plate.
Clean the apples, core them, peel them, cut them in half, then into half moons and cover the puff pastry triangles.
With one teaspoon, take small portions of butter, distribute them on the surface, sprinkle them with sugar, and place them in the oven (previously heated) at 200 degrees for 20 minutes.
Remove the triangles from the oven and brush them with a little apricot jam. Garnish with some mint leaves.
If the jam to make this apple pie is a bit hard, you can heat it a little in the microwave so it liquefies.
If you don’t have apples or don’t like them, you can use pears as this apple pie substitute. The flavour is not the same, but the cakes will be just as delicious.
