A great combination of soft dough and apples - You will love this pie.

I found this recipe on the internet. As usual, I modified it a little, and the result was really excellent. What have I changed from the original recipe? I grated the juice of half a lime (or a green lime) into the paste; lime gives an absolutely fresh taste and is less acidic than lemon. Instead of oil, I put 80 g of warm, melted butter. You can, of course, vary the combination with apples, for example, with pears, or combine both at the same time depending on what you have at home.


Ingredients for the cake:


Material used — you can buy spring form mold Ø 26 cm on our site.

4 apples
1 egg
lemon juice
100 g of granulated sugar
125 ml of milk
80 g of melted butter
200 g flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

icing sugar for sprinkling

Zest of half a lime.


Preparing the cake dough


Peel and core all the apples. Cut two of them into half-moon shapes and set them aside.

Beat the eggs in a bowl, add the sugar, and beat with a whisk. Then add the milk and melted butter and incorporate the flour little by little. Finally, add the sifted yeast and lime zest. Mix until you obtain a homogeneous mass.

Grate the remaining two apples into the dough.

Grease the cake mold with butter and sprinkle it with flour. Pour the dough into it.

Smooth the surface, then place the apple half-moons on the dough, and sprinkle them with brown sugar.

Bake for around 40–45 minutes at 180 °C; check using a toothpick.
