Is there anyone who doesn't like apple pie , especially apples bathed in caramel ? Apart from my dwarfs, of course… :)))) This cake is so good that I would almost boast again what good cakes I make, but I won't make it. I leave it to you to do it and convince yourself… :)))
- For the dough:
- 350 g flour
- 170 g butter
- 100 g sugar
- 50 g of oatmeal
- 2 eggs
- 10 g baking powder
- 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
- For the filling:
- 4 medium apples in size
- 150 g sugar
- 100 g butter
- 200 ml whipped cream
Preparation Caramel apple cake:
We mix the soft butter at room temperature with the sugar until it becomes fluffy like a cream. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one.
Mix the flour with a pinch of salt, oatmeal, vanilla sugar and baking powder, then incorporate it into the butter cream, mixing with a spoon (it will be harder with the mixer). Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate for about 2 hours, during which time the dough will harden considerably.
Divide the dough into 3 parts, put one part in the freezer, spread the rest evenly in the tart pan. Refrigerate until the apples are ready, unless you have prepared them in the meantime. :))
Cut the apples into cubes.
The sugar is caramelized. When it has become liquid and amber-colored, remove from the heat and add the butter, then the whipped cream. Put again on low heat and stirring constantly, boil until the caramel melts. Add the apple cubes and boil them in caramel until soft. set aside and let it cool.
Put the apples in the tart pan, spreading them evenly over the entire surface of the tray. When we put them over the dough, we try to drain them as much as possible of the excess caramel. What is left we will keep for serving.
The rest of the dough, the one I put in the freezer, we put on the grater with large mesh, distributing it evenly over the filling. put the pan in the oven over medium heat until lightly browned on top. Leave to cool in the pan, then portion.
