  • I am a big fan of cake and Italian dough, and I have been making their specialties for years, here is one of my specialties, a delicious dessert with apple and walnut cream. It tastes fantastic, and the dough is really crispy and soft, and the snacks are eaten with pleasure. Be sure to make it because the recipe is great! Follow recipe.

Ingredients: mold 28 cm ( 25 cm width of the bottom of the tray with sides is 28 cm), very easy /standing dough 40 min/cooking time : 80 min/total time: 120 min.

  1. Pour the butter and sugar into a deep plastic bowl, beat well with a mixer until the mixture becomes compact, add eggs, yolk, a pinch of salt, grated lemon peel, vanilla extract and mix again.

  2. After that, put the mixer attachment for a stronger dough on the mixer. Gradually add flour mixed with baking powder, stir until the mixture becomes compact, and then proceed to mix with your hands on the floured surface of the worktop.

  3. The dough must be compactly even and smooth.

  4. Then make a ball of dough and wrap it in nylon foil and let it stand for 40 minutes in the fridge.

  5. During that time, prepare Apple walnuts dressing.

Apple Walnuts Dressing:

  1. During this time, wash and peel the apples, remove the seeds.

  2. Grate the apples, pour lemon juice over them and mix well.

  3. Pour apples into a deep pot. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar, vanilla sugar (if the apples are sweet, add 2 full tablespoons of sugar, I have used green apples). Pour the walnuts when the cream becomes thicker and the liquid disappears, stir well mixture and cook for 5 minutes more.

  4. Do everything over a moderate heat, stirring occasionally.

  5. Allow the cream to cool for 30 minutes.


  1. Take a round mold of 28 cm, coat it with butter and flour, evenly. Shake off excess flour.

  2. Take the dough out of the fridge, put a baking paper on the work surface, add the dough. On top of the dough, add again baking paper. With the help of a rolling pin, roll out the dough to a thickness of 7-8 mm.

  3. When the dough is ready, separate the paper from the surface of the dough, transfer it to the mold with the help of another paper. After that, remove the paper and start forming the dough into a mold.

  4. Stick the dough to the edges of the mold with your hands and press it gently by hand from all sides evenly.

  5. Remove the excess dough from the edges of the mold with the help of a knife.

  6. Prick the dough with a fork, without edges.

  7. Pour the prepared cold apple cream with walnuts over the dough and smooth it well.

  8. Make a ball again from the rest of the dough, roll it out with a rolling pin, cut it into strips up to 1-1.5 cm thick.

  9. Arrange the strips diagonally, like the second row, one over the other.

  10. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

  11. During this time, if desired, with the help of a brush spread the strips with 1 beaten egg. I do this regularly, and it gives a nice color to this pie.

  12. Bake the cake in an oven heated to 180 °C for 25-30 minutes.

  13. Put aluminum foil as needed if your oven is working harder 15 minutes before the end.

  14. Turn the mold from time to time in the oven while it is baking.

  15. The cake must get an impressive golden yellow-brown color.

  16. Leave the finished cake to cool in the oven with the door open.

  17. Cooled cake, sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Bon appetit!
