May 13 is National Apple Pie Day, sadly we are temporarily closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since you can't come to us, we'll come to you! Here's a little slice of comfort from our home to yours! Find the original Italian receipe of our exquisite Torta di mele:
4 apples (golden)
250 grams flour
100 grams butter
150 grams sugar
125 millilitres milk
1 lemon (grated zest of)
16 grams baking powder
-Heat the oven to 200° C.
-In a bowl mix sugar with butter to make a creamy mix.
-Add the eggs, flour, milk, the lemon zest, a pinch of salt and the baking powder. The dough should be creamy, if it’s too thick just add small amounts of milk.
-Peel the apples. Slice 3 ½ and put only the other ½ in small chunks into the pastry.
-Pour the mixture into a round baking tin, previously buttered and sprinkled with flour.
-On the top of it, place the sliced apples as in a radial. Sprinkle 2 spoons of brown sugar and cinnamon.
-Bake for 40-45 minutes. Let the cake cool before slicing.
