Oooh, I had a pretty eventful week. Finally, almost everbody’s done with exams. That means: Celebrating!
I was in the mood for baking, too. And an Apple Cheese Pie it was!
This pie was pretty much work and needed a lot of dish-washing. But I love the composition between cheesecake and apple-pie. The apples are caramelised and it’s a wholemeal pie crust.
Yummy! Interested in the recipe? End of the post!
Well. Want to know about my eventful week? Tuesday, my cousin was in town, so we went to the cinema – The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus it was. Awful film, really. It was boring, the story sucks and seems totally fragmented. Poor Heath Ledger – he would have deserved a better last film. Wednesday, we went to have a cocktail and tested an “in”-bar that has over 200 different cocktails. I ordered a “Bombay Special” and it was really good. (But oh, expensive.) Thursday, my study group friends had their last exam – with another friend that already passed that exam (like me, yay) we picked them up from the lecture hall and went on a pub tour – that was fun! Friday, we went to the home party of a fellow student which was okay (I don’t really like home partys…) and then we went to a club. Yesterday, we went to another home party which was more fun and then we went in a bar I totally love – they play so good music there! There are never two songs in a row I don’t know. I love it. I think we danced for more than 4 hours without a break.
I took out my new scarf that Mum brought home – I love it, it fits my red jacket perfectly!
Now today, I’m really tired. Just as my little cute cat.
I love it when she sleeps like that, with her paw over her head – She sleeps like me! Haha. But I don’t sleep now – I’m relaxing with my laptop on the couch, while watching Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis with Mum and (sleeping) Dad.
And now, I’m typing in the recipe. Have fun with baking and let me know if you try it!
Apple Cheese Pie
for the pie crust:
200 g wholemeal spelt flour (you can use normal flour, too!)
a pinch of salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 drops butter vanilla flavour (optional)
50 g margarine (I used soy margarine)
70 g yoghurt
2 tablespoons water
for the filling:
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoons butter or margarine
100 ml apple juice
80 g sugar
a pinch of salt
250 g quark (non-fat)
250 g sour cream
1 package custard powder
Mix all the ingredients for the crust in a bowl and put it in the fridge. Core and peel the apples, then cut it in slices. Take the dough out of the fridge an put it evenly in the pie pan.
Preheat the oven to 175° Celsius. Melt the brown sugar in a pan, put the tablespoon butter/margarine in and deglaze with apple juice. Put in the apple slices and caramelise them a bit. Let them dry on kitchen roll paper. Seperate the eggs. Whisk the egg white with some sugar stiff, put it in the fridge. Mix the yolk with all the other ingredients, then fold in the beaten egg whites. Put the mixture on the pie crust and arrange the apple slices on it.
Bake for about 40 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
