Russian Apple Pie Recipe with Fresh Apples

I love baking the russian apple pie. This cake recipe is so easy! Plus you use fresh apples and it is not too sweet. You can play around with the ingredients and add more apples or reduce the sugar. The mix of apples, cinnamon, chocolate and nuts is perfect and makes a great fall and winter pie. This pie is easy to prepare and a good potluck dessert.

I got this Russian apple pie¬†recipe from my mother, who is German ūüôā You can play around with the ingredients and add more apples or reduce the sugar. The mix of apples, cinnamon, chocolate and nuts is perfect and makes a great fall and winter pie. It is easy to prepare and a good potluck dessert. I didn’t add any topping, but you can add chocolate or a frosting. This recipe differs a little from American pie recipes, because it is not so sweet and creamy. Rather it is a more dry cake, perfect to eat with coffee! I got all my ingredients at ALDI so it is a very affordable snack or breakfast. I love that you don’t need expensive kitchen machines to prepare this dessert!

What You Need

How to prepare the Russian Apple Pie

First, peel the apples, cut out the core and slice thinly. Put the apple slices into a bowl and sprinkle with cinnamon, 2 T sugar and if you like a shot of rum (the alcohol will evaporate while the pie is baking). Mix all ingredients in the bowl and let sit for 15 minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients in a second mixing bowl¬†and use a hand blender to blend the dough. You don’t need an expensive kitchen machine for this step.

You can use margarine to make it easier to blend, but the suggested hand blender will mix everything together, even blend hard butter, and it will chop the nuts a little bit more.

After you are done blending and your apples were “soaking” in the cinnamon-sugar-rum mix, add the apples into the second bowl with the dough and mix together.

All you have to do now is to transfer your dough into the silicone pie baking pan and bake it in the oven for 1h on 360 F/ 180C.
