How to make an oatmeal and custard-based apple pie
- We get down to work with the oat flakes . We will transform this breakfast into a crispy and delicious base for a special cake. We put the oat flakes in the blender jar.
- We crush the oat flakes. We add the cinnamon and sugar. We will make a kind of fine flour that will give texture to each bite.
- We melt the butter with the honey . When it is ready, we add the previous mixture little by little until it melts perfectly.
- We prepare a tray lined with baking paper so that the dough does not stick. We add the mixture that we have ready and reserve in the fridge for half an hour.
- Bake the base at 180º for about 10 minutes until it becomes more consistent. The smell of this element will already remind us of the classic apple pie.
- We extend the custard above the base . They will be in charge of giving that creamy texture to the cake. We can put a little more cinnamon on top if we like it a lot.
- We continue with the apples . We wash them and cut with a mandolin as thin as possible. To be able to fold and form the classic roses, we will boil them with a little water, a tablespoon of honey and sugar.
- When the apples are tender, drain them. We give shape to these roses by placing the apple in the form of petals. It is an entertaining task, but the result is worth it. The trick will be to place the apple pieces next to each other and roll them up.
- As we have these roses the cake will be completed We serve it and enjoy it with the best possible company.
