I like the simplest pies possible that can be made quickly for breakfast. One such is apple pie with kefir. You are likely to find all the ingredients in your refrigerator. As nutritionists point out, apples are not only a tasty fruit, but also a healthy one.
WHAT APPLES ARE GOOD FOR
Apples contain a lot of fiber and water, so they can quickly relieve feelings of hunger. And it is better to eat these fruits with peel, since the latter contain polyphenols, which have an antioxidant effect. Apples can be added fresh to salads, baked in the oven, grilled and marinated in them.
Apples contain pectin, a type of fiber that acts as a prebiotic. But it is important to consider that if you make apple juice, this drink will not contain fiber. It is better to eat one or two apples as a snack.
Just imagine, one small apple - up to 180 grams - contains 14% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, 6% of potassium, and 5% of vitamin K.
200 grams of sugar
1 tsp. vanilla sugar
250 ml kefir
50g butter (+ 20g extra for greasing the cake pan)
250 grams of flour
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2 or 3 hard apples
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Mix 2 eggs and 200 g sugar in a bowl. Use a bowl large enough to hold all the dough. If you have a food processor, you can knead the dough in it.
Add a pinch of salt and 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar. Whisk the mixture thoroughly with a whisk.
Add 50 g of softened butter and mix until smooth.
Pour 250 ml of kefir into the bowl. Mix again with a whisk until completely combined. I use regular store-bought kefir.
Add 1 tsp. of baking powder to the mixture and mix with a whisk. Often you see the advice that the baking powder must be mixed with the flour, but trust me, it makes no difference here.
Sift 250 grams of flour through a sieve and add it to the bowl, stirring the mixture constantly with a whisk.
Mix the mass well until homogeneous. The ready dough should be quite thick, like very thick sour cream.
Take a baking dish 24-26 cm in diameter and line it with parchment. Grease the inside of the mold with 20g of butter.
Take 2-3 apples, wash, cut into slices about 0.5 cm thick. You can peel the apples beforehand if they have very hard skin, or you can not peel them.
Pour the entire batter into the baking dish so that it spreads evenly over it.
If necessary, use a tablespoon to gently smooth out the dough in the mold.
On top of the pastry, fan the apple slices so that they take up the entire area of the pie.
Sprinkle 1 tsp. ground cinnamon on top of the apples and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Check if the apples are ready with a wooden skewer. Sprinkle the pie with powdered sugar before serving.
Cooking is easy!
