Applepie (Milopita: greek version)



One of my favorite deserts, especially in winter is this apple pie. This recipe is similar to many in circulation, but my mother always made it like this and with some tiny changes I make it too! The greek name milopita just means applepie (Milo is apple and pita is pie!).

Ingredients
2-3 apples
3 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp granulated sugar
150 gr. butter

For the dough
1 apple, cut into cubes
200 gr. butter
1 and 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 handful of raisins
1 tsp vanilla extract
 

How to Make
Preheat oven to 180. Prepare the dough by putting in the mixer butter to hit well, the eggs and sugar alternately until homogenized, cinnamon, and finally the flour alternately with milk. From the flour keep aside 1-2 tbsp. Let it hit for 3-4 minutes.
Put together a pan with removable bottom covered with wax paper and put it 150 gr. butter, 3 tbsp sugar and 3 tbsp cinammon and place it in the oven until the butter melts. At the same time, cut the apples into small cubes (can be made into rings, depending how we like it).
Then, chop chop the apple for the dough and mix these pices with the raisins. Use the remaining 2 tbsp of flour to cover them. Add them to the dough and stir well with a spoon.
Remove the pan from the oven, add the apple cubes and then the dough. Bake at 180 for 50 minutes to 1 hour. To see when it is ready, dip a toothpick in the cake. If it comes out clean, you re ready to go!
 
Remove from the oven and turned over on a platter. After you carefully remove the baking sheet, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve!

  28. To me, a pie is a "pie"...a cake is a "cake"...Greek, or American, it still is a cake to me. No resemblance of a pie, but a delicious apple cake, that is Universal!
    A PIE requires a CRUST, which the cake does not HAVE!

    1. I agree with you! Its just that my mother always called this desert milopita, and in greek pita is pie, so I ve kept this name!
