How to make it

  • Melt the butter, let it cool down a bit while you peel your apples,
  • cut them in quarters and cut the center out.
  • Put your sugar, eggs, vanilla sugar, butter, salt and calvados in a big bowl and mix it until it's foamy.
  • Next, slice your apples into thin slices
  • Pour the flour and the pinch of baking powder into your egg, sugar, and butter mixture and mix it up until it's smooth.
  • Then put about 4/5th of your apples in there, and gently mix it up until all slices are covered in batter.
  • Grease a round cake pan (medium sized) and pour everything into it, smooth it out.
  • arrange the remaining apples nicely on top of the batter.
  • Bake the French apple pie 395°F on the lowest level in your oven for about 50 minutes.
  • Please check on the pie regularly, and at around 35-40 minutes, if you see the top getting brown, cover it up with foil and finish baking.
  • Let the French apple pie cool off for a while, and then dust the powdered sugar over the pie!

    If you don't have vanilla sugar or apple brandy, you can substitute them with vanilla cream liquor. It adds a really nice flavor. This is a nice recipe, however, I don't recommend cooking this pie at such a high temperature nor on the bottom rack as it burned after 25 minutes the first time I made it. I would recommend baking it on the middle rack at 325 degrees.
