10 servings 


For the dough:

  • 2 cups of sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 80 to 100 grams of granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch of lemon zest
  • 125 grams of butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 Tablespoons of water

For the filling:

  • 125 grams of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 125 grams of sugar
  • 200 Grams of flour
  • 4 green apples
  • 1 Tablespoon of water


We’ll begin with the crust. Start by creaming the butter with the sugar, then add the egg yolks, flour, baking powder and water, and mix until it forms a creamy dough. In the meantime, preheat the oven for 30 minutes to between 150° - 180° C. Grease a detachable mold and fill with the dough, pressing against the sides with a spatula. Bake for 30 minutes. If you are using a gas oven and have the option, direct the flames toward the outside.Next comes the filling. Grate the apples and sauté with 8 tablespoons of sugar and a tablespoon of water for 15 minutes. In a food processor, mix 200 grams of flour, 125 g of sugar, 1 T cinnamon, and 125 grams of butter, until the mixture reaches a uniform crumb consistency.Once the dough is ready, remove from the oven and fill with the baked apples, and then cover with the sugary breadcrumbs. Place back to the oven for about 20 minutes until the crumbs are golden on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.
