This week is quite special for me, because I’m entering the next breakthrough stage of my life … yes, yes as you’ve probably guessed right, I’ll join the group of happy thirty-year-olds. When I was a child, this age seemed to me a bit senile … while being in early grades of primary school, I was eagerly recounting something to my mom ‘ … this elderly woman at your age.’ – and my mum wasn’t probably even 30 at that time. As we say time has no mercy for anyone! However, today I’d like to write about something else … since this week is full of different kinds of experiences, I decided to serve you a culinary article for a change. This particular recipe has been waiting for you for a long while, but every time I wanted to post it … I came up with another idea for my article. That’s why, this recipe has spent some time at the bottom of my drawer.
As you already know, all my culinary articles are related to my struggles in the kitchen … so my dearest future husband … maybe you won’t have a full tummy with me, but when you really start starving, and you won’t care anymore … I’ll serve you this pie, which is difficult to ruin, and it tastes really awesome.
Recipe for Skubaniec – an easy fruit pie
- 1 bar of margarine (250 g)
- 3 spoons of lard
- 5 yolks
- 1/2 glass of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 3 glasses of cake flour
- 1 spoon of cocoa
Egg white foam:
- 5 egg whites
- 1 packet of kissel (favourite flavour, pink looks nice on the pie) – optional
- 1/2 glass of sugar
- 10 apples
- icing sugar
Mix margarine, lard, yolks, sugar, baking powder and flour.
Knead until you get homogeneous pastry.
Next, divide it into three pieces.
Spread the first one on the baking tin, prick the pastry with a fork and sprinkle it with breadcrumbs. The breadcrumbs will absorb extra fruit juice.
Peel the apples and grate them.
Drain the fruit in the colander, too much juice may cause a sad layer of the bottom part of the pie.
Sprinkle the apples with sugar and cinnamon.
Add cocoa to the second piece of the pastry and knead it again. Next, tear the pastry and spread it on the fruit.
Beat the egg whites together with sugar and kissel until you get the egg white foam. Spread the beaten egg whites on the apples.
Finally, tear the third piece of your pastry and put it on the egg white foam.
Bake your pie in 180° for about 45-50 min. After cooling down, you can sprinkle Skubaniec with icing sugar.
I hope you’ll find this pie tasty. If you don’t like apples, you can also use different kinds of fruit. Bon appetit! I’ll come back to you next week … and one year older!
See you around!

No Kochana, z tego co czytam to ten Twój przyszły mąż nie będzie miał z Tobą tak źle, jak straszysz :D Dla mnie proste ciasta to są takie „wrzuć wszystko do miski, zmiksuj, wylej na keksówkę” :-) i głównie takimi raczę swoich bliskich :-) A Twoje ciasto wygląda naprawdę pięknie. Zgłodniałam! Musisz teraz upiec drugie, dla czytelników bloga :-) Kto jest ZA?
Kasiu, może i nie będzie miał źle, ale warto go przygotować na najgorsze, jeżeli jakiś biedak się znajdzie. :) Ja też lubię robić takie ciasta bez-wysiłkowe, to również jest dosyć proste. :) A jeżeli czytelnicy będą chcieli się ze mną spotkać, to jak najbardziej. :)
This pie looks amazing and your instructions are so clear. This recipe is going on my grocery shopping list right now!
Hope you'll find it the same delicious as me and my family members. :)
Welcome to thrilling thirties :) Thanks for this detailed recipe of the pie. Long since I tried making one. I am trying my hand at it with this recipe :)
Hope your pie will be a total success. Hope to hear from you soon. :)
Lovely pie I wish I could have a slice. Even if you say cooking is not your forte making pie is an art.
I think I wouldn't be so bad at cooking if I found some more time for practice. I'm very slow at preparing meals, but the outcomes aren't bad. :)
I can totally relate, cooking is not my area lol. You just have to find someone that likes to cook for you. That’s what I did. Also this pie looks amazing!
Oh, I hope my future husband will cook something too ... it would be pleasant to be served from time to time. You're right this pie looks just amazing. :)
This really sounds yummy! Apples are delicious
Apples always taste amazing together with cinnamon. :)
This sounds delicious, fruit pies are very yummy
I always find the simplest pies the most delicious. :)
Man! You’re still making it from scratch though. I buy my dough and then make the top. Saves so much time! ?
I know that buying dough saves some time, but I always think that fresh food and ingredients are healthier. :)
Wow. I've never heard of this kind of fruit pie before. It looks really intriguing.
I hope you'll have a chance to try it out. :)
welcome to the club! it's my favorite age yet!
What else can I say ... mine too! :)
Instructions look super easy! Thank you for being so detailed. Can't wait to try this.
I'm glad my instructions may help you prepare this pie. :)
Happy Birthday! I just celebrated my birthday yesterday. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm going to try baking this weekend. I like how you write the instructions. You make it appear as if it's easy to do. Haha! Thanks!
Thank you! So it seems I had my b'day a day before you. I'm glad you think this pie is easy to prepare ... as it really isn't too difficult to bake it. :)
You’re not the only one whose skills lie outside of cooking! My partner does all of our cooking. I’ll have to show him this recipe!
Your really lucky your partner can cook for both of you. :) Hope you'll like this pie. :)
This recipe looks like a great recipe to try over the summer months here in the USA. I am wondering though, what is the conversion for "glass" to US standards?
I hope you'll find this pie delicious. A glass is 200 ml for liquids, so use a glass of this size and just measure the amount of flour by using it. :)
This looks so yummy! I've never made a fruit pie before but now i need to try!
Hope you'll enjoy baking it! It's really simple to prepare. :)
This is interesting. Since I am not a big fan of apple, will try something else. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
This pie is great as you can always change the fruit, and it still tastes good. :)
I'm not good in the kitchen, but I do like apples so this pie looks tasty to me. Welcome to the 30 club! www.ohtobeamuse.com
Hope you'll decide to bake it one day. :) The 30 club is just awesome. :)
I love food and welcome to 30's.. I will try this recipe. It is very detailed.
Hope the instructions will occur to be useful for you. :)
happy birthday!! and this recipe looks totally unique and drool-worthy.. now to go buy more apples:)
Thank you! Apples always sound good to me, especially in such pies. :)
So I am not a big fan of Margarine...any reason you cant switch it out for real butter? Other than that this looks absolutely amazing...I would eat the whole thing by myself in one sitting!
You can always use butter, it's quite an old recipe and maybe at that time it was more common to use margarine. I must tell you that it still tastes great, but if you think that butter will taste better and will be healthier, you can always try to add it. :)
What a nice pie, my family loves this simple dessert and I make pie pretty often. But do not get tricked pies are an art too so I am sure your future husband will enjoy a pie made by you.
I think he won't have a big choice. This pie was pretty easy, just a bit time consuming for such a slow cook like me. :)
Happy belated birthday, and welcome to the group of 30s... Make the most of it, and this skubaniec looks like one thing that is worth to try, although I'm not so good in the kitchen so we'll see if I find it easy if I try it myself. Thanks for sharing! :)
Hope you'll decide to try it out ... and you'll find yourself a great cook one day. :)
This recipe looks like a bit of work - you explained it so well with pictures and detailed instructions.
I tried to do my best ... it looks like lots of work, but if someone is a skilled cook, it shouldn't take so much time to prepare it. :)
This looks amazing. I love apple pie! I hope you had a good birthday!
Thanks to my friends my b'day was real fun! I also love apple pie. :)
First, welcome to the club of thirty plus ladies! Lol. And don't worry about your kitchen skills. At least you know how to bake a pie. Me on the other hand just know how to cook scrambled egg. Lol
It's great to be in the club of thirty plus! :) I'm not that worried about my kitchen skills as it may seem, I believe I'll learn it when I have to. Scrambled eggs sound just great! :)
My goodness! Does this ever look good! I'm going to have to give it a try. Too delicious looking not to.
You should try it out, it's really difficult to fail at it ... and it's super yummy. :)
