Awesome Apple Pie

Does it look pretty strange to you..... what kind of apple pie is this you must be wondering ? ha... I am actually totally drool over this strange looking dessert ever since long ago and have finally put everything together to make it work on last weekend. My kids are loving it. It was so easy to prepare by only using very simple ingredients. I was truly amazed by the outcome. Sweet warm & tender apple with amazing tasty hazelnut filling plus fluffy soft sponge topping. What else can I say more!

Now, here's what I did.
Ingredients :
7 large apples, skinned & cored the center
1/2 cup  hazelnut / walnut meal
2 TB brown sugar
1 tspn  cinnamon powder

Ingredients for topping :
4 egg white
2 TB  sugar
(whisk ingredients till stiffed, set aside)

4 egg yolk
2 TB  sugar
4 TB  all purpose flour
1 tspn  baking powder
4 TB  corn oil
(beat yolk & sugar till fluffy, stir in flour + baking powder & corn oil till everything well combined & smooth)

To Assemble : fold ingredients (A) into (B) by 3 batches till everything well combined. Do not over mix the batter.

Method :
(1) stir together hazelnut, cinnamon powder & sugar, mix well.
(2) place apples to a 9" baking tray lined with parchment paper, filled apple with hazelnut mixture. Make sure its well stuffed by pressing in the mixture.
(3) finally, bake at preheated oven 210'C for about 10 mins.
(4) now without cooling the baked apples, pour in the top mixture.
(5) and bake at preheated oven at 180'C for about 20-25 mins or till golden brown.

* Please take note of the amount of flour used here is 4 TB instead of 2 TB as written earlier.

The sponge like topping looks super gorgeous. The apples are nicely covered but not fully. Maybe by increasing the topping ingredients to 5 eggs, 5 TB sugar, 5TB flour & 5TB corn oil....will sure help.

I guarantee you this pie will surely brings you smiling faces the whole day. Be happy !

Looking at the pictures can't tell only made from so little flour. I'm sure this topping can go well with other fruits as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Kristy, I just got the time to really read through the recipe and I need your confirmation about the amount of flour needed. Should it be 4 tablespoons or 2? I love how the pie looks and intend to bake it soon:)

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Kristy, you always amaze me with your bake, this look so special, it should call as apple cake but not pie, hehehe..maybe next time i can try with other stone fruits.

Andrea said...

Apples, cinnamon, & nuts is a lovely combo. Your apple pie sounds wonderful!

Lyndsey Chapin said...

I doesn't look like my mom's apple pie that's for sure. It does look yummy though...almost like an apple coffee cake. Looks interesting how you made it.

Little Inbox said...

I love it in this soft texture. Yummy!

YK said...

Hi Kristy,
the apple pie looks awesome.
May I ask did you slice (into half or 4 ect) the apples to remove the core? Because from the picture, it looks like your apples are whole.
And if the apples are halved, the cinnamon hazelnut mixture can "stick" the apple back together?

Sorry if this sounds like a silly quetion, I'm not really experience at cooking but I'm looking for a cake recipe for my mum's birthday.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you.

My Little Space said...

Hi YK,
First of all, thanks so much for stopping by my humble little space. And to your answer, my apples are in whole. I didn't halved them but I dug out the middle by using a special cutter.


Or you may follow the instruction here to core the apples.


Hope this will help. Wishing you luck on baking your mom's birthday cake. Enjoy !
Blessings, Kristy
