The rustic Grandma’s apple pie is a cake that remains soft and creamy for a few days. To prepare the cake are used the sweet yellow apples and pantry ingredients such as sugar, flour, baking powder. The smell that will come out from oven will make your mouth water! Apples most commonly used for the cake are the Golden, yellow and very sweet, with a thin skin. But it will be very tasty even with Fuji and Royal Gala. The first ones have juicy and crunchy pulp with a sweet and aromatic flavor, the Royal Gala, however, are bicolor red and yellow and have a fine juicy and crunchy pulp, always very sweet.
