Default French Apple Pie (French Recipes)




Prep Time: 30 minutes or less | Cook Time: 30 minutes - 1 hour | Serves: 9
Dessert Pies French

Ingredients:





It was another rainy cold dark Sunday in Switzerland, perfect to bake some yummy pie for the office!

This is supposed to be a French style apple pie, although I don't know its French name. I got the recipe by browsing German recipe sites and they all call it "Apple pie a la Bretagne" There are many French apple pie recipes all over the internet, so it might very well be a true French recipe! After all it has Calvados in it. It's a very moist and not overly sweet or heavy cake with a lot of apple flavor, and it is super simple to prepare.

French Apple Pie
150g ****er (3/4 cup)
4 eggs
About 1 Tbsp vanilla sugar
1 pinch salt
1 pinch baking powder
150g flour (roughly 1 1/2 cups)
150g sugar (white or brown) (about 1 1/3 cups)
500g apples (a sweet sort, I picked Golden Delicious apples) (Roughly 1 lb of apples)
some powdered sugar
2cl (about 4 teaspoons) Calvados (or Apple Brandy. You can leave out the Calvados if you don't have any).

Step 1:





Melt the ****er, let it cool down a bit while you peel your apples, cut them in quarters and cut the center out.

Put your sugar, eggs, vanilla sugar, ****er, salt and calvados in a big bowl and mix it until it's foamy.

Step 3:





Pour the flour and the pinch of baking powder into your egg, sugar, and ****er mixture and mix it up until it's smooth.

Then put about 4/5th of your apples in there, and gently mix it up until all slices are covered in batter.

Grease a round cake pan (medium sized) and pour everything into it, smooth it out. Remember the 1/5th of apple slices you have left over? Grab them and try to arrange them nicely on top of the batter. (As you can see, I tried to arrange them and failed!)

Bake the French apple pie around 200C (395F) on the lowest level in your oven for about 50 minutes. Please check on the pie regularly, and at around 35-40 minutes, if you see the top getting brown, cover it up with foil and finish baking.
