Preparation of the recipe for grated apple pie

  1. In a bowl, shell the eggs; then, add the granulated sugar and a pinch of salt.
  2. Using electric whisks, whip the mixture until it becomes clear and puffy.
  3. Add the oil, slowly , and the grated lemon zest and keep working to incorporate them.
  4. Sift the flour and pour it over the mixture. Do the same with the baking powder and mix with the whisk to obtain a smooth, lump-free mixture.
