Teatime in the Garden

Yesterday was an intense day, so today I decided to stay at home and to cook something nice. I invited one of my friends and promised that I will make something delicious.

And I want to share a receipt of my favorite Austrian dessert.  As I am lactovegetarian and I don’t eat eggs, the most secure way for me to eat something which I will like and enjoy, is to prepare it by myself.


Ingrediens for the dough:

1 topfen (250g) (also known as Quark)
a pinch of salt
1 butter (250g)
1 glass of flour (120g)

30 ml vanilla sugar

Ingredients for the filling:

600 g apples
120 ml water
30 ml lemon juice
5 ml butter
50 g sugar
1 ml cinnamon


Firstly, the dough has to be prepared. In order to do this, mix the flour with vanilla sugar, salt and topfen cheese to form a dough. Afterwards, add the cold butter, cut into pieces and knead everything into smooth dough. Put the dough in the fridge for half an hour.

Secondly, we need to create the filling. Peel and wash the apples and cut them into thin strips. Put them in a saucepan with the water, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon and steam for 10 minutes. Once this is completed, drain the apples in a sieve.

Our next step is to roll out the dough and place it on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Now we place the apples on one half and put the other half of the dough on top.

Prick the cake a few times with a fork and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees (top/bottom heat) for about 35-40 minutes.

This receipt was shared to me by one wonderful Austrian woman, mother of four children.  I am sure that you will find Apfelschlangerl amazing because it’s easy to cook and really delicious. On my deserts I usually strew some sugar powder on top, but you can decorate it as you like.

Mahlzeit und bis Bald,
