Home Made Apple Pie - Greek Style

I love apples. And they are everywhere this time of year. We were in our little groccery store the other day and there were a ton of locally grown apples. So I got some to make my favorite apple pie. Its a simple recipe but a little labor intensive in assembly. And since Mr. Milk has been away on business, I figured it would be nice for him to come home to some yummy baked goods! So here it goes.

Ingredients:

5-6 medium apples (I picked fuji cause they are my fav)
1 cup sugar plus 2 tbsp
2 tsp ground cinammon
1 cup vegetable oil (I use corn oil)
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 eggs
lots of flour! (around 6 cups I would say but have more)

Process:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees


Peel the apples. Take a box grater and use the large grating surface to grate the apples.


Grate as close to the cores as possible


Sprinkle apples with 1.5 tsps sugar and 1 tsp cinammon and stir. Set aside.


In a seperate bowl mix together 1 cup sugar, 3 eggs, baking powder, vanilla, vegetable oil.


Start to add the flour. The goal is to get a consistency that is thicker than regular cake batter. You want it to pull away from the sides as you mix it.


Pour 3/4 of the batter into the baking dish


Continue to add flour to the remaining batter until it turns into a ball of dough (like pizza dough)



Pour the apple mixture over the cake batter layer. The apples will probably have released some liquid so try to avoid adding that.


Take the box grater and using the largest grating surface again, grate the ball of dough over the apple mixture.


Sprinkle with remaining sugar and cinammon and bake for about one hour.



And Enjoy!

You're making me hungry!

Is the dough tough to grate? That seems like the only "scary" part! I might try to make a healthy version of this for when Ryan comes down next weekend! (If he knew it had a cup of oil in and egg yolks, he would stroke out...what can I say, he's a health freak!)

Thank you for sharing this, it looks so yummy!
