If your going to make an apple pie make this apple pie cake it is sooo good.
3 Egg Yolks
115g Caster Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
115g Salted Butter, melted and cooled
170g Self-Raising Flour
5 Large Granny Smith Apples
3 tbsp Plum Jam
2 tbsp Desiccated Coconut
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
Zest of 1 Lemon
2 tsp Cinnamon Sugar mix (1 tsp Cinnamon with 50g Sugar
To make the dough, beat together the egg yolks, caster sugar and vanilla until thick and pale. Add the butter and beat to combine. Add the flour and mix until combined. Tip onto a well floured bench. With floured hand bring the dough together to form a ball. Divide into 2 and wrap in cling film and freeze for 2 hours. (I did this first thing in the morning).
To make the filling, peel and grate the apples into a colander. Allow to sit in colander for 15 minutes, then squeeze the juice out. In a bowl, combine the apple with the sultanas, jam, coconut, cinnamon and lemon zest.
Pre-heat oven at 160 degrees C fan oven. Line a 20cm springform cake tin.
Coarsley grate 1 of the frozen dough pieces evenly overt the base of the tin, the gently press down. Spread the apple filling evenly over the base. Grate the other frozen dough evenly over the top. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
