A quick and easy recipe – blitz means ‘lightning’ in German!

Ingredients for 4 portions

  • Apples 1 kg
  • Flour 200 g
  • Cane sugar 100 g
  • Butter (softened) 60 g
  • Eggs 2
  • Baking powder 1 teaspoon
  • Lemons One and a half
  • Glass of milk (200 ml) One
  • Rum 1 tbsp
  • Icing sugar to taste



Wash and peel the apples and cut them up into quarters. Remove the seeds and make parallel cuts without slicing all the way through. Put the apples on a plate and sprinkle them with 50 g cane sugar and drizzle with the juice of one lemon.


Leave this mixture to combine for 30 minutes.


Separate the egg whites from the yolks and whip them with a pinch of salt.


Put the softened butter into a bowl with the rest of the sugar and mix it with a spoon or blender.


Add the juice and zest of half a lemon.


Add the yolks and mix.


Sieve the flour with the baking powder and add the milk and a tablespoon of rum.


Add half of the whipped yolks and mix them in before adding the rest of the whites very delicately, using upward sweeping movements to avoid collapsing them.


Grease an oven dish, sprinkle with breadcrumbs or flour and add the cake mixture.


Arrange the apples on top, pushing them down into the mixture with the cuts pointing upwards.

Carbon footprint

To limit our impact on the environment, we advise you to remain within 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, including all the courses you eat. Bear in mind that plant-based dishes are more likely to have a low environmental impact.

Even though some of our suggestions exceed the recommended 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, that doesn't mean you should never make them; it's the overall balance that counts. Regularly eating a healthy and eco-friendly diet in the long term offsets even the dishes with the most impact, as long as you don't make them too often.
