Recipe by JohannaR
The only real kind of apple pie, finnish-style I guess. This isn't what most people, especially americans, are used to but it's delicious and tastes just as good after being frozen and melted as it did freshly baked. Can be served both hot and cold (I quite like it when it's still a bit frozen).
- 4 1⁄2 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 5 ounces margarine
- 1 cup water
- 3 cups flour
- 4 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 5 apples (topping)
- 2 tablespoons sugar (topping)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon (topping)
Directions See How It's Made
- Whisk together the eggs and the sugar.
- Melt the margarine in a kettle together with the water and add in to the egg-sugar mixture.
- Mix the flour and the baking powder and add in to the rest.
- Pour onto a baking sheet (about 15'x14', high edges).
- Heat the oven to 392°F.
- Peel and core the apples, then slice them into 1/4 inch wide slices.
- Cover the batter with the apples (it should look like lines of (((((((( ).
- Mix the sugar and the cinnamon and sprinkle over the apples.
- Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until batter is cooked (test by sticking a toothpick into the batter, if the stick is clean when you take it out, the pie is ready, if crumbs stick to it, let the pie bake for a while).
- Enjoy with vanilla sauce or ice cream.
