Normally the type of biscuits that I like the most are those that are especially juicy inside, and that is usually achieved by adding fruit. So these days at home we could enjoy a delicious breakfast with this Apple pie with crunchy hazelnuts, a cake not too sweet because it has brown sugar and reinette apple, which gives it a point of acidity.
In this case the nuts chosen were hazelnuts, but allow any other type you like, yes, it is important that keep the same amount as indicated in the ingredients so that they are not very heavy in the dough and prevent it from rising when cooking. In case you do not have flour with yeast incorporated you should add a whole envelope of chemical impeller so that it grows enough in the oven.
Ingredients for a mold twenty two centimeters in diameter
- 3 eggs L, 175 g of butter, 350 g of flour with built-in yeast, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 175 g of brown sugar, 3 reinette apples, 50 g of raisins, 100 g of hazelnuts, 3 tablespoons of jam apricot, 2 tablespoons of water.
How to make apple pie with crunchy hazelnuts
We will begin preheating the oven to 170 degrees with fan or 180 only with heat up and down. We will grease and sprinkle with flour a mold about twenty to twenty two centimeters in diameter. Then in a bowl add the flour with yeast incorporated, cinnamon and brown sugar and mix well with a fork. Melt the butter in a saucepan and let it warm.
We peel two of the apples and the we cut into small cubes, we add them to the bowl of flour, we add the raisins and half of the hazelnuts grossly crushed. We stir everything again until we see the fruit covered by the flour.
In the bowl where we had let the butter temper add the eggs, and beat with a few rods or with a rod blender the mixture until it sponges for a few minutes. We add this mixture to the rest of the ingredients and stir until all incorporated well. There will be a very thick dough and increasingly difficult to remove.
We add it to the mold and smooth its surface. Peel the apple that we had left over and cut it into thin slices, spreading them on the surface of the cake and then adding the hazelnuts in pieces on top. We bake an hour and a quarter. Meanwhile, we heat the jam with the water and just when we take our cake out of the oven, we pour the glaze over the crunchy cover to make it bright.

He Apple pie with crunchy hazelnuts It's the typical English cake that I imagine to have with the five o'clock tea. But as I think you will not usually follow that custom in your home, I recommend you prepare it to taste it sitting on your sofa watching Downton Abbey or some very “British” series.
