Apple pie from the ’70

Recipe from the past

My mother used to make this apple pie when we had visitors. It is easy to make, comes from the Dr Oetker baking booklet from the 1970s, and is still as delicious as ever.

In fact, this apple pie is actually an apple cake. You cover the pastry with apple slices. After it has baked and cooled down, you cover it with warmed apricot jam, which makes it easy to spread the jam all over the cake.
