Italian applecake

Apples!

I confess, this morning when i peeled and cut the apples i got from the garden, i sighed. And decided to use to of the Delcorfs new harvest i bought on the market. Because they are bigger.

The recipe i used is from smulweb.nl, a Dutch cooking website. I did do a search on duckduckgo.com for the word appeltaart, trying to find a good recipe for the Dutch appeltaart. And there i found this Italian applecake recipe. Hmm.

Ingredients

  • 150 gram butter
  • 150 gram sugar ( i used light brown sugar)
  • 4 eggs (i only had three, i added soaked lineseed for the fourth)
  • 500 gram apples
  • 150 gram flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 lemon, the juice and the rind
  • a bit of salt
  • 1 courgette, rasped (because i have so many and this cake is for the garden)

Method

  • preheat your oven to 180 ÂșC
  • melt the butter on a low fire, keep an eye on this and put out the fire once the butter is completely melted
  • peel the apples, slice them finely
  • rasp the courgette over the apples
  • rasp your lemon
  • squeeze your lemon and put it over the apple slices
  • put the sugar, salt, lemon peel and four eggs in a bowl, whisk this till it is foamy
  • add the melted butter to the apples
  • add the flour and the baking powder to the apples and mix
  • add the apples and flour and butter to the egg mixture and mix good
  • cover a 26 cm wide round springform with butter and add a spoon of flour to it and swirl it around
  • put the dough in the springform
  • bake for 40 to 50 minutes in the oven
  • put the oven out once it is done and leave the cake inside for five minutes

Enjoy!
