Cakes with apples preparation steps

Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl and warm 100 ml milk. Milk should not be too warm or it will “kill” the yeast and the dough will not rise enough. Make a hole in the flour, add warm milk and crumbled yeast. Add some sugar and wait for about 8 minutes for the yeast to start frothing. Add all other ingredients and knead the dough. 

Roll the dough out into a 95 × 30 rectangle, 0.5cm thick. Mix the filling ingredients thoroughly and cover the dough with the filling. Coarsely grate the apples, add sugar and cinnamon, and gently cook the apples in a small frying pan for about 5 minutes. When the apples cool down, spread them over the curd cheese. Roll the dough lengthwise and cut the roll into small cakes. Whip the egg white with a fork and then coat the cakes. 

Preheat the oven to 180°C and bake for 40–50 minutes. Cover the cakes with a cloth and leave them to cool down. Top the cakes with icing sugar.
