The Classic Recipe For Italian Apple Pie

At Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort, it’s apple harvesting season so we put our heads together to share one of our favorite personal recipes for a delicious apple pie. 

ingredients:
350 g of wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 eggs
170g butter, softened
200 g sugar
200 g plain yogurt
Organic Apples (as much as you need)
1 glass of orange juice
orange marmalade
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Method:
1. Work the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth.
2. Combine the eggs, yogurt and flour. Finally, add a packet of yeast.
3. If the dough is too “compact” you can add up to 1 cup of orange juice.
4. Add the diced apples and place the mixture into a buttered baking pan and sprinkle with a little flour.
Arrange the apple slices to decorate the cake.
5. Brush the surface of the cake with orange marmalade and garnish with a little olive oil before baking.
6. Bake at 200 ° C for 30 minutes.
Enjoy and Buon appetito!
