Quick apple pie with a loose bottom


Preparation time: 20 min.
Cooking or baking time: 30 min.
Total preparation time: 50 min.

In keeping with the apple season, I would like to recommend this quick recipe for an apple cake from the tin with a very loose bottom, which is by no means dry. The dough is stirred together quite quickly and baked, only the preparation of the apples takes a bit more time, so I did not peel them this time.


For a baking sheet about 40 x 25 cm

For the dough:

  • 5 eggs
  • 200 g of sugar
  • 1 pck of vanilla sugar
  • 125 ml of vegetable oil
  • 300 g of flour
  • 1 pck of baking soda
  • 200 g sour cream

For covering:

  • about 850 g of apples
  • cinnamon sugar, raisins, almond flakes, powdered sugar as desired


  1. The raisins are best soaked overnight in some rum or apple juice.
  2. Wash the apples, peel, quarter, core and then cut the quarters into small slits.
  3. The oven is preheated to 160-180 degrees (top / bottom heat).
  4. The eggs are nicely creamed with the sugar and vanilla sugar with the beater of the hand mixer, then let the oil enter and stir.
  5. The flour is mixed with the baking powder, then it is sieved and stirred in portions under the egg-sugar mass.
  6. Finally, add the sour cream into the viscous dough and distribute it on the greased or lined baking sheet.
  7. Now the dough bottom is covered with the apple slices and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, raisins and / or almonds.
  8. The sheet is then pushed onto a lower rail in the preheated oven and bakes the cake for about 30 minutes.
  9. Then you let it cool briefly in the oven first, before you take it out and maybe even enjoy a warm piece.

At will it can be dusted with powdered sugar. Also with some cream or vanilla ice cream - a pleasure!

I wish you a good appetite!
