● 1 kg. apples
● 120 gr. sugar + 2 Tbsp. for sprinkles
● 150 ml milk
1 sachet of vanilla sugar
● 1 lemon zest
● 150 gr. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
● 1 tsp. cinnamon
● 1 tsp. cinnamon ● A pinch of salt
1 tsp. cinnamon ● a pinch of salt ● 30 gr. butter
Peel the apples from the skin and seeds, and cut into thin slices (or you can grate them on a Berner grater, or a special attachment on a food processor). Mix the flour with the baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar into a fluffy mixture. Add the milk and beat a little more. Add flour mixture in batches and knead the dough. The dough will be a little runny. Add lemon zest and apples. Stir everything well.
Line a 20x30cm rectangular baking tin with parchment, pour out the batter and smooth it out. On top spread the cooled butter, cut into small pieces, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Bake for 40-50 minutes at 180 degrees, until the crust browns on top. Cool the finished pie for 10 minutes in the form on a rack, then take out of the form and remove the paper. Cut the pie into square pieces and you are ready to enjoy.
