And autumn has come to you dear ones? :))) Then let's turn on the ovens, make the whole house of cinnamon and ripe apples smell
If you like apple desserts, you will also like this pie woven with apples and raisins . It is very good and not only is very easy to make, but it also looks impressive 😉
Pie braided with apples and raisins
- For the dough:
- 2 eggs
- 10 g dry yeast (or 25 g fresh yeast)
- 100 g sugar
- 250 ml milk
- 60 g butter
- 525 g flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- vanilla essence (or any flavor you like)
- For the filling:
- 1 kg of apples
- 100-150 g sugar (depending on how sweet the apples are)
- 1-2 tablespoons of starch (depending on how much juice the apples leave)
- 1 handful of raisins
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- For the pie:
- 1 yolk
- a few tablespoons of cold milk
Preparation Pie braided with apples and raisins:
Mix the yeast with 1 tablespoon of sugar, 50 ml of warm milk and a little flour. Homogenize and leave in a warm place until it swells and blisters appear on the surface.
Put the mayonnaise in the pan of the bread machine, then add the eggs, the rest of the sugar, the salt, the melted and cooled butter, the vanilla essence, the remaining milk and the flour little by little. Knead until all the ingredients are incorporated and obtain an elastic dough. Let it rise until it doubles in volume.
- If you do not have a bread machine, the dough can be kneaded manually
- Depending on the type of flour used or the size of the eggs, flour is added if the dough is too soft or warm milk if the dough is too thick.
Meanwhile, prepare the filling :
Peel apples and seeds (you can peel them if you want). Cut into cubes and put in a saucepan. Add the sugar and put on low heat until the sugar melts and the apples leave their juice. Add the starch and cinnamon and mix well, but carefully, so as not to crush the apples. When the apples have softened, add the raisins and remove from the heat.
The raised dough is poured on the table sprinkled with a little flour and divided into two parts. Each part is stretched with the twister in a thin sheet of about 0.5 cm. With a sharp knife cut into strips on the sides of the dough.
The apple filling, well cooled, we spread it in the middle of the sheet, between the 2 rows of strips. Then we start to "weave" the strips, bringing one on each side and overlapping them.
Do the same with the second piece of dough.
Carefully place the braided pie in a tray lined with baking paper. Leave it to rise a little, then grease it with the beaten egg yolk with a few tablespoons of cold milk.
Place the tray in the oven over medium heat (150 degrees, electric oven with ventilation) for about 30 minutes, until the plate is browned.
Allow the pie to cool, powder with sugar and portion.
Good appetite! 😉
