Bio apples used by Alessio for the apple pie sunday Baking Km Zero Tours Slow Travel Tuscany 300x169

300 g flour
3 large apples
250 grams of sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder (16 g)
3 eggs
1 glass of milk
70 g butter
1 lemon
Cooking method:
Wash the apples, peeled and take out the core. Cut the apples into wedges and put them to soak with a little sugar and lemon juice in a bowl.
Whip the egg yolks with the sugar until you get a light cream and frothy. Beat the egg whites until stiff and embed them gently into the whipped egg yolks and sugar.
Add to the mix the previously sifted flour, melted butter and warmed milk. Stir and mix well. Reduce 2/3 of the apple slices into smaller pieces and mix them. At the end add the sifted yeast and mix well to the dough.

Pour the mixture into a greased baking sheet sprinkled with sugar with a diameter of about 24 cm. You can decide how to best decorate your apple pie, the dough should be sufficiently dense so that you can place the apple slices remained over the entire surface without sinking into the cake. Cook the apple pie in a static oven for about 40 minutes at 180 °C and buon appetito!
