Hello Ada, nothing like the comforting recipes of moms that remind us of childhood. I like to associate the apple with the cinnamon that I put out of the oven with cane sugar.
my thoughts for those affected by the floods .
I wish you a beautiful day and a pleasant weekend

Where did you get this recipe? Is’ my Apple Pie with a little variation (but I'm not telling you, because I just see copied my).

Sicilians creative in the kitchen June 29, 2014 - 10:09

Hello, the recipe is my mother, who prepares it like this since I have memory (now 38 years unfortunately for me…). If you could be a territorial Sicilian recipe, but I can't tell you with precision. My mother is from Palermo but I don't think the recipe has a tradition of Palermo. Is’ just a normal Apple Pie ingredients, many people make it so, in every region of Italy and with all possible variants…

ALE November 10, 2014 - 07:00

Dear Ada, We have a thing in common, even my mom was so Apple Pie, I confirm that it is a real pleasure… Let me tell you a little secret: This wonderful recipe (with only a small change that if you are interested I will explain) It was published out of a women's magazine about 45 years ago, in the address book “the kitchen of the true”; my mother told me that behind this pseudonym lurked Brunella Gaffney, journalist and author of which I got to enjoy the crackling literary production.
Hello, ALE

Sicilians creative in the kitchen November 10, 2014 - 12:24

Of course I care about the variation! In fact I can't wait to hear. And I document on Brunella Gaffney: see how many things you can learn from an Apple Pie! I embrace you, ADA

ALE November 10, 2014 - 23:48

Et voila dear! The variation concerns the apples, After having sliced should be sprayed with the juice of one to two lemons and then placed on the cake as you explained you. Anyway, I have little patience, fix dome directly on the dough, I assure you that in cooking they are almost completely covered ensuring that creamy texture that you know well ;)

Sicilians creative in the kitchen November 10, 2014 - 23:56

And here I am! I asked my mom and she sprays the apples with lemon. I don't do it because I have the apples as they cut the cake and lemon zest to put in the mix. In any case, it is my favorite cake!!!!

Pina January 29, 2014 - 19:14

You gave me a desire to Apple Pie….. the I'll definitely try!!!

Michela January 9, 2014 - 19:34

Good evening!sorry I saw the recipe for apples and I must say that inspires me a lot and I would love to try it but please excuse the ignorance I just don't understand how putting apples!could you help me?Thank you very much!

Sicilians creative in the kitchen January 10, 2014 - 13:48

Hello Michael and welcome to my blog!Then, It is easier to do than to say: Peel apples, remove the core and seeds, the cut in half, then into quarters and then into thin slices. Then put each slice perpendicularly into the cake so that only the upper slice thin strip, and the cake should be completely covered with. The part of Apple inside the dough melts and the one above, with sugar and butter, makes a nice crust. Hello! ADA

Michela January 15, 2014 - 22:21

Hi Ada thanks x the answer!!!!Yesterday I tried to make the cake and its really good thanks x the recipe!!!Anyway the next time I want to try to double doses xchè the mold by 24 cm feels too big x doses on the recipe you think?have a good evening !MICHELA

Sicilians creative in the kitchen January 15, 2014 - 23:14

Hello Michael! Watch, I have always used a mould from 24 and is pretty high, because you have to blend a lot and the mixture rises well, then there are the apples which increase in volume. Maybe instead of double, that strikes me as a little’ Too much, make a third more. Let me know, ADA

Lucia December 28, 2013 - 13:45

Federica March 12, 2013 - 16:45

Hi! I would make this cake for my daughter's snack, Since she loves apples, but could you explain how place the Apple slices? Must ricopire the surface of the cake, so I have to put lying down, or should be inserted in the imapsto?

fratelli_ai_fornelli March 12, 2013 - 16:48

Hello and thank you! Then, Apples, made in mid, then into quarters and then sliced not too thin, go stick perpendicularly in the cake: so on the surface you see only the thin part and outermost slices of Apple. I hope to be able to make you understand well…It is very good indeed…If you have concerns or problems are here. A greeting, ADA

Federica March 12, 2013 - 16:57

Understood. As I have? I follow the circumference of the cake? How do you usually?

fratelli_ai_fornelli March 12, 2013 - 17:10

Then, I depart from the Center and make a row by placing them one above and one below so that the dough will ' move’ homogeneously. Then step to the next line and so on for the right half of the cake and then left. In practice are about 5 rows of Apple slices

Federica March 12, 2013 - 17:24


fratelli_ai_fornelli March 12, 2013 - 17:46

Is’ a pleasure. Let me know how you are!
