Delicious Apple-Walnut-Crumble-Cake Recipe

1) Apple-Walnut-Crumble-Cake

It’s the 26th again and Clara from Tastesheriff is talking about apple pie today. A super topic I think:-) I like apple pie best with a great loose dough, with a few nuts (especially walnuts:-)), with a nice fine cinnamon note and with crispy crumbles ;-)) This is my favourite apple pie. I love the scent that apples and cinnamon spread as soon as they bake in a wonderful dough in the oven…mmhhh, I could smell it all the time:-) Of course, childhood memories are immediately awakened, because apple pie used to be soooo often. It was and still is the most baked cake of my Mum:-)

For apple pie I like to use our family recipe. The dough is wonderfully loose, light and juicy:-) I had already baked the cherry pie with this dough.

Der Teig ist außerdem im Nu zusammengerührt und man kann ihn sehr vielseitig variieren, ob Äpfel, Birnen, Beeren, Nüsse…jedes Obst ist bei diesem Teig erlaubt:-)

The ingredients (18er springform pan)

  • For the dough
  • 1 egg
  • 60 g cane sugar
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar
  • 125 g flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 75 g natural yoghurt
  • 25 ml milk
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 25 g coarsely chopped walnuts
  • For the covering
  • 2 medium-sized apples (approx. 200 g)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp cane sugar
  • lemon juice
  • For the sprinkles
  • 50 g flour
  • 35 g cane sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 30 g soft butter
  • 25 g coarsely chopped walnuts
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

The preparation

  1. Prove the oven to 180C. Cover the springform pan with baking paper.
  2. Wash and dry the apples for the topping. Use the apple cutter to cut out the core and cut the apples into 1-2 cm thick slices. Sprinkle with lemon juice and mix in a bowl with the sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Cream egg, sugar and vanilla sugar. Mix the flour with the baking powder and stir carefully into the egg mixture together with the yoghurt and the oil. Finally stir in the walnuts
  4. Pour the dough into the springform pan, smooth down, spread the apple slices along the edge like roof tiles and overlapping. Leave the middle free, because then there is a gap that can be filled with the delicious crumbles. Press the apple slices a little into the dough but not too much. You should still be able to see them well.
  5. For the crumbles, mix flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter in a mixing bowl and crumble with a whisk. Finally add the chopped walnuts. Spread the crumble at the edge of the mould and in the middle.
  6. Bake the cake on the middle shelf for about 40-45 minutes.
  7. After baking, leave the cake in the pan for about 5 minutes and then remove. Allow to cool on a cake rack. Then serve sprinkled with icing sugar.
  8. It tastes best lukewarm with a dash of cream or vanilla sauce;-)
