Torta di Mele

A lightly sweetened rustic Tuscan apple cake

Torta di Mele

4 apples
250 g flour
100 g butter
150 g sugar
2 eggs
125 ml milk
lemon  zest from 1 lemon
1 tsp baking powder

Heat the oven to 160 C.
In a bowl mix sugar with butter to make a creamy mix.
Add the eggs, flour, milk, the lemon zest, a pinch of salt and the baking powder. The mixture should be creamy but not thick, if it’s too thick just add small amounts of milk.
Peel the apples. Thinly slice 3 apples and cut 1 apple into small cubes.  Mix the chopped up apples into the creamy mixture.
Pour the mixture into a prepped round baking tin.
On the top of it, place the sliced apples. Sprinkle 2 spoons of sugar and cubes of butter.
Bake for 40-45 minutes.
Let the cake cool before slicing.
Buon appetito!
