Ingredients Serves 4
- 1.5 cup whole-wheat flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp apple vinegar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- 3-4 apples
In a large bowl combine 1.5 cup of flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix well.
In a separate bowl combine liquid ingredients: 1/2 cup of vegetable oil (sunflower, olive or canola), 1 tablespoon of apple vinegar. Optionally add 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Mix well thoroughly until emulsified.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with dry ingredients, mix until well combined.
Core and cut the apples into chunks. Measure out 2 cups of apple chunks.
Mix the dough with 2 cups of apple chunks.
Line the round 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper.
Transfer the dough into the pan, level surface with a spoon. If there are some apple chunks with skin up, turn them over as the skin will be burnt otherwise.
Optionally you can sprinkle some cranberries or cowberries on top of the pie. Press them half into the dough.
Put the pie into preheated to 350F/180C degrees oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Let your sharlotka pie cool before removing it from the pan.
