Dutch Appeltaart

Today i baked the Dutch Appeltaart. Not for myself, but for a friend. Too sweet for me i confess. It is lovely of course. Filled with apples surrounded by a sweet baked dough. Cinnamon and vanille are the main tasty ingredients. Apart from the apples and the sugar and the flour. I used Goudreinette, the apple i use to make an applesauce most of the time. A sweet and sour apple which does cook easily to a pulp.

I used a recipe i found online on Eef kookt zo. In Dutch of course.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilo of Goudreinetten apples
  • 450 gr flour (any you want, i used a wheat flour which was partly freed of brown stuff
  • 250 gr butter on room temperature
  • 225 gr light brown sugar
  • 100 gr raisins – sultana’s are the ones i used
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanille paste
  • salt
  • fresh lemon juice

Method

  1. Put the raisins in a bowl of warm water and let it sit for a couple of minutes
  2. Heat up the oven to 175ÂșC
  3. Mix the flour, butter, sugar, vanille paste, salt and one and a half egg until it is nice and compact
  4. Grease a springform of 23-25 cm wide in with butter and press in 3/4 of the dough in the form, going up all the sides
  5. Core the apples, peel them and cut them in small wedges. Put in a bowl with the freshly squeezed lemon juice. Pour the water away from the raisins and add them to the apples. Mix the apple and raisin misture with a spoon of sugar and the cinnamon.
  6. Fill the dough with the apples. Press down with a bit of force.
  7. Take the remaining dough and roll out to a thin layer, slice strips of it. Weave the strips over the appeltaart.
  8. Use the remaining quarter of the egg to brush over the dough at the top.
  9. Bake for an hour in the oven until it is golden brown
  10. Enjoy!
