Swiss apple cake will change your day!

Swiss apple pie

The Swiss apple cake is a real delight, capable of sweetening even the darkest and most enervated day.

The Swiss apple cake is a variant of the best-known and classic cake with this delicious fruit. It is made with brewer's yeast , does not have a lot of sugar, and is perfect on any occasion: for breakfast, as a snack, or as an excellent ending to main meals.

Don't expect a recipe similar to ours: this apple pie is made up of a leavened base , a layer of apples and an egg-based mixture (which is a bit reminiscent of Parisian flan ) as a "topping".

You can accompany it with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but even on its own it doesn't have to be eaten!
