Amazing balloon with apples. Step by step recipe
- First, prepare the apples. They need to be washed, peeled and peeled, cut into small pieces.
- Tip. To prepare a simple apple pie, it is better to use apples of sour varieties and a dense texture: for example, “Antonovka” or “Simirenko”.
- Cover the baking dish or dish with parchment paper and spread the apples cut into pieces.
- Tip. To prevent apple slices from darkening, you can sprinkle them with lemon juice.
- In a separate container, beat the eggs with a pinch of salt, to increase the mass in volume three times.
- Pour granulated sugar, add vanilla extract and continue whisking.
- Tip. Cinnamon fits apples very well, if you like this spice, be sure to add it to the dough for airy apple charlotte, like your grandmother’s. It is very important to beat eggs first with salt, and only after increasing the size add sugar. So the dough will become more airy.
- In sifted flour, add baking powder. Sifting flour is necessary: in order to enrich it with oxygen. From this baking will become more magnificent.
- Tip. If you do not have a baking powder, it can be replaced with soda, which must be extinguished with vinegar.
- Pour gradually the flour mixture to the egg mass, gently mixing with a spoon or silicone spatula. This should be done slowly so that the egg foam does not fall.
- We spread the dough for charlotte with apples on top of the fruits and level the surface.
- We set the cake to bake in the oven preheated to 180 degrees for half an hour.
- Tip. The readiness of the pie can be checked with a splinter. If the wooden stick remained dry and clean when piercing the cake, then the baking is ready.
- The first fifteen minutes you can’t open the oven door, because at this time the cake begins to rise. And with a temperature difference, it can fall.
- Baked delicious, airy apple charlotte can be sprinkled with powdered sugar.
- My grandmother also cooked charlotte using a bun. To do this, vanilla bun or braid was cut into small buns: the bun should be a little callous. Then it was soaked in milk with vanilla sugar dissolved in it and laid out on the bottom of the baking dish. Thin slices of butter lay on top of the bun. Then sliced apples were laid out in slices. Dough was poured over them: and baked.
After complete cooling, cut the charlotte and serve with a ball of creamy or vanilla ice cream. How to make ice cream at home, find out on our site “Very tasty”. Here you will find many different interesting recipes for delicious dishes: appetizers, main dishes and, of course, desserts.
