How to make the Apple and Amaretti Cake

1. First, chop the amaretti biscuits and wet them with the 5 spoons of rum liqueur and set aside

2. Peel the apples and cut them into small cubes (to prevent them from turning black , I suggest you bathe them with some lemon juice)

3. Put the sugar in the mixer and turn, add the butter and blend, so add the eggs, the flour, the baking powder and lemon zest

4. Take the pastry away from the mixer and put it in a bowl, adding the amaretti and the apples in pieces, blend well.

5. Put the pastry in a baking pan and bake in the oven at 180 °C (356 °F) for 35 minutes.

6. Let it cool before cutting it as it is very crumbly.

    Is a spoon a teaspoon, a table spoon? Does this take any apple? How many grams of diced apple? And can you mix different varieties? Thank you!

      Ciao Lois 🙂 It’s 4 spoons of rum, not teaspoons. You can choose the types of apples you most like, and as for the grams of diced apple, just take 3 or 4 medium apples, for a more soft result, use 4 apples:-)
