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!
