This apple pie promises pure enjoyment, not least because of the wonderfully aromatic pecans: They are full of various minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium, which are important for bones and various metabolic processes. Several B-vitamins from the American nut bring good properties for nerves and brain.
The altogether quite expensive pecan nuts can be replaced by the similar looking and tasting walnuts.
Stir the softened butter with salt and sugar until fluffy. Stir in the eggs, flour and baking powder.
Peel and halve the apples. Remove the seeds.
Grate 1 apple and stir into the batter.
Pour the batter into a greased pan.
Cut the apples into slices. Put the apples, pieces of butter and chopped nuts on in the dough.
Sprinkle with sugar and decorate the edge with the halved pecans.
Bake for 50 minutes at 180°C (approximately 350°F).
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into pieces and serve.
