My apple pie story

A delicious autumn-winter season treat, exactly how my mum makes it!


The base:

400g spelt flower

200g butter

4 egg yolks (keep the whites for later)

1 tbl spoon honey

1 spoon baking powder

2 spoons breadcrumbs

The apples:

1 kg apples

300g brown sugar

1 pack of vanilla sugar

1 spoon cinnamon

The meringue:

4 egg whites

200g icing sugar

A handful of chopped hazelnuts


The method:

  1. Peel and grate the apples. Fry them with sugar, adding the vanilla sugar and cinnamon at the end. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C (with the fan).
  3. Mix all the base ingredients and knead the dough until smooth. Spread the dough in the backing tray evenly and press it down. Bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Take the tray out of the oven, reduce the temperature to 150 °C. Sprinkle the dough with the breadcrumbs. Spread the apples evenly and bake for another 10 minutes.
  5. In the meantime beat the whites with sugar, add the walnuts.
  6. Spread the meringue evenly and bake for 25 more minutes.

Then, sit down, relax and enjoy the cake!
