Apple charlotte recipe comes from French cuisine. Despite the simplicity of preparation, the cake has an exquisite taste. From a minimum of products, the most delicious dessert is obtained.
But we are used to cooking charlotte in the oven. Have you tried making it in a bread maker? If not, do it and you will be pleasantly surprised.
The set of products is the same as for making ordinary charlotte in the oven, but the result is different, since charlotte with apples in the bread machine turns out to be more tender in taste. And you don’t have to look into the oven to check if it’s burnt, because the bread machine will do everything itself. So – forward to new culinary achievements!
Additional shades of taste and aroma will add spices to charlotte. Do not be afraid to fantasize. Try adding a little vanilla sugar or lemon zest to the biscuit dough. Add ground cinnamon, nutmeg or cardamom to apples. Even a pinch of ginger or ground black pepper will not spoil the taste of the pie at all, but will give it a mysterious charm and a slight piquancy. But when adding spices, try not to overdo it.
Charlotte is best served hot, 10-15 minutes after cooking. A scoop of creamy ice cream or sour cream will perfectly set off the taste of a fragrant, hot cake. Making sour cream is not difficult. A glass of sour cream with a high fat content (25 - 30%) is thoroughly beaten with a mixer until stable peaks. Mix four tablespoons of powdered sugar with a bag of vanilla sugar and add to sour cream. Mix everything thoroughly and beat again.
Antonovka is rightfully considered the best variety of apples for charlotte. Incredibly fragrant, with a pronounced sourness, Antonov apples perfectly set off and complement the taste of a sweet biscuit.
