It is one of the easiest and most delicious thing to do. There is a strange feeling about baking that I always have. Whenever I’m baking something, I feel more calm and happy, it’s like the cheapest medicine for a bad weather or a bad mood. If you don’t know what to do with yourself – bake! That’s what we did one day – me and Cristina – to pump up our positive energy and satisfy our belly’s 🙂 It’s really simple and don’t cost much – so everyone can make it!
Let’s start then. What do we need?
For the cake:
500 g of flour
150 g of butter
8 big spoons of powder sugar
around 10 big spoons of water
For the filling:
1 kg of apples – it can be different types of apples, usually people prefer sour apples, but I love it with normal, sweet apples
150 g of sugar
1 big spoon of cinnamon
5 big spoons of coco powder
And some creative part – around 100 g of red fruits – it can be strawberries, raspberries, just sth that give this additional “kick” to our flavour
Ok let’s start to make it then!
First part – Let’s prepare a cake :
To the flour we r adding firstly butter and powder sugar. We have to mix it very carefully and then we have to slowly add water – spoon by spoon – until our cake will have just one colour. Then, we have to put it inside the fridge for about 25 min.
Second part –
While our cake is in the fridge, we can make a filling. So- we need to grind our apples (smaller the wholes in the grater – the better, of course we have to peel the apples before) and add sugar. Then – we r warming this filling on the pan for about 15 min (don’t burn it!). During that time we can take our cake and split it into two half’s. The first half we need for “the bottom” so we have to roll half of the cake, until it will have more or less 0.5 cm. Then, we have to put our cake into our baking form (which has to be all covered in some kind of butter or oil). Then, we put inside the form our filling, to which we had to add coco powder, cinnamon and fruits that we choose. The rest of the cake we r using to make ‘the top” (also 0,5 cm).
The last part-
We have to put our form into the oven for about 40 minutes (temperature- 190 degrees). When it will be gold and we start to smell it all around the kitchen – that’s means it’s ready. After just add a bit of powder sugar on the top of the cake to make it look really nice. Bon apetit!
And someone couldn’t wait to taste it! 🙂
