Delicious Poppy + Apple Pie

Delicious Poppy + Apple Pie

Delicious Poppy + Apple Pie

Its delicious, super festive, (comparatively ;) ) healthy and very, very easy to make! :)


2 cups of poppy seeds

6 apples

1/2 cup of butter

1  1/3 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of honey

1  1/2 teaspoons of baking powder 

Rasins and/ or walnuts (can be added if you like them!)

6 teaspoons of semolina

5 eggs

Almond oil 


1. The night (or 8h-12h) before you will make the actual pie leave the poppy in a large amount of boiling water.

2. When you will be ready to start making the pie, drain the poppy and grind it twice in a food grander (or a coffee grinder - also works ;) )

3. Melt the butter and wait for it to cool down.

4. Add 5 egg yolks and sugar to the cooled, melted butter and mix it together into one coherent mass.

5. To the previously created mass, add honey and ground poppy.

6. Wash the apples, peel them, grate them and add to the mix.

7. Add semolina, almond oli (as much/little as you would like - I usually go with 2 teaspoons), raisins and walnuts. 

8. Mix it in a mixer.

9. Mix 5 egg whites until a foam will form, and add to the previously mixed mass.

10. Mix it all together and put it a baking form.

11. Bake for ok. 50 min

12. Enjoy the deliciousness you have just created! :D

Happy Baking! :)
