Ricotta and apple pie without butter is soft and fragrant and is preserved for a long time. It is very simple to prepare. Peeling apples, cut them in half and then into quarters. Finally, thin slices. Put the apples in a bowl with cinnamon, lemon juice and two tablespoons of sugar.

Put the eggs in a bowl, sugar and a hearty pinch of salt. Whip with electric whips until you get a swollen, foamy compound. It will take at least 10 minutes. Add the ricotta and blend until you get a smooth, lump-free mixture. Combine the sifted flour with the yeast, on several occasions and always mounting at low speed. Add the juice of half a lemon and the grated zest and mix them with a spatula.

Grease and flour a cake Pan, pour the dough into it and level with a spatula. Cover the surface of the dessert with apples, as you see in the picture, to create an orderly and precise drawing.

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees static, bake the cake and bake for 45 minutes or until it is swollen and golden. Always worth the stick test: tucked into the heart of the sweet must come out dry.

Once the ricotta and apple pie is baked, without butter put in a saucepan the honey, the juice of half a lemon and a tablespoon of water. Bring to a boil and, with a brush, brush the apple slices with honey, that will thus become shiny and sweet. Bon appétit!
