This apple pudding recipe is quick, but the dough needs to be prepared an hour in advance. However, this delicious buttery and crispy dough is worth it.


For the dough:

  • 1 and ¼ cups semi-coarse flour
  • 1 and ¼ cup plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup cold butter cut into small cubes
  • ½ cup of sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice

  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

To finish:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • icing sugar


Preparing the dough:

  • Mix flour with salt and add butter.
  • Using a mixer, beat the mixture so that everything comes together (but do not beat for too long so that the butter does not soften).
  • Whip the sour cream with lemon juice and water to the side.
  • Then, using a fork, carefully mix this mixture with the butter and flour.
  • Shape the dough into a loaf, wrap it in cling film and put it in the fridge for at least 1 hour (it can stay there for up to 2 days and it can last a month in the freezer).

Preparation of the filling:

  • While the dough is chilling, prepare the filling.
  • Peel the apples, remove the cores and cut them into small cubes.
  • Put them to boil in a small amount of water together with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Cook for about 8-10 minutes until soft.
  • After cooking, strain them (drink the water from the apples) and let them cool down for a while.

Preparing the bags:

  • Divide the chilled dough into 2 halves.
  • Put one half back in the fridge and roll out the other half on a lightly floured rolling pin to about 3 mm thick dough.
  • Now it’s up to you if you want to cut the dough into squares with a knife or cut it into a circle of any size with a mug.
  • Put the filling (1-2 spoons) into the cut pieces and fold them in half (for squares, you can decide whether to cut them in half into a rectangle or triangle shape).
  • Brush the edges of all the scarves with water so that they come together well.
  • In addition, press them with a fork (it will come together even better and it will look nice).
  • Make small slits on each scarf and brush them with egg yolk mixed with a little water.
  • Place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • Bake them at 190 °C for about 20 minutes.
  • Repeat the same with the other half of the dough.
  • Bake until golden. Sprinkle the cooled pieces with powdered sugar and serve.
