  • 3 tbsp Rum
  • 1,5 Lemons, juice from them
  • For dough and crumble
  • 250 g 1/2 and 1/2 good butter and margarine

  • Wash the apples and remove the core using an apple cutter. Put warm water in a large kettle. Add the white wine, rum and lemon juice and put the apples in it. Bring the whole thing to the boil briefly for 2-3 minutes. Take them out, drain them in a sieve and let them cool down.

  • Place the eggs under the rest of the batter and process.
  • Line a springform pan with baking paper and brush the edge with butter.
  • Put the dough in the springform pan and distribute it evenly. Press the apples lightly into the batter. Place a teaspoon of brown sugar in the apple opening.
  • Now spread the crumble mixture on top and put it in the oven that has not been preheated. Bake at 150 ° C. for 50 minutes.
  • Exactly at that time we went for a lap with the dog through the forest in the rain and expected a fragrant coffee table as a reward.
  • I made a vanilla sauce for the cake, which was served warm.
