Cooking dish: 26 cm diameter


6 apples   1.1 kg
7 tbsp margarine non-hydrogenated   100 g
1 cup sugar   200 g
2 eggs size large    
1 cup almonds, blanched   150 g

Before you start

The almonds must be blanched in advance.

A mill or food processor will be very useful to finely grind the almonds. A mixer will be very useful to beat the egg whites.


  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F. Lightly grease a baking dish with margarine.
  2. Peel and core the apples then cut them in half. Blanch them 4 min in a pot of boiling water. Drain well and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Mix the margarine and sugar in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Separate the egg whites from the yolks: add the yolks to the butter-sugar mixture, incorporating them well; add the whites to another bowl. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until finely ground, then add them to the mixture.
  5. Beat the egg whites to form stiff peaks using a mixer, then fold them into the mixture, blending gently with a spatule. Pour the mixture over the apples in the baking dish and bake in the middle of the oven 20 min.
  6. Let the apples cool down, then serve.
