Ingredients for Polish Apple Cake

2 ¾ cup flour
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
4 egg yolks
¼ teaspoon salt
2 ¼ lb apples
½ cup sugar
cinnamon, nutmeg or ground cloves for flavor
4 tablespoons vanilla wafers
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

Directions for Polish Apple Cake

Combine 2-3/4 c flour with 1 c confectioner’s sugar, 4 egg yolks and 1/4 t salt and blend ingredients into a uniform dough. Do not knead! Roll into ball, wrap in foil and refrigerate at least 30 min.

Meanwhile, in pot combine 1 lb tart cooking apples, peeled and sliced, with 1/2 c sugar and simmer on low heat until apples are tender. To cooked apples add 1-1/4 lb peeled, diced or sliced uncooked apples. Season with several pinches cinnamon, nutmeg or ground cloves or a combination of any 2 or all 3 (1 pinch of each). Several T raisins and or 1 T diced candied orange rind may be added to apple mixture.

Divide chilled dough in 1/2. Roll one half out thin into a rectangle or square to fit your baking pan. Pierce all over with fork and bake in preheated 390° oven 10-15 min.

Sprinkle surface of baked dough with 3-4 T crushed vanilla wafers and spread apple filling evenly over surface. Season with 1 t vanilla sugar.

Roll out remaining dough half and cover apples.

Reduce heat to 350° and bake about 45-60 min.

Serving Suggestions
Slice cake into squares after it has cooled. If the apple filling seems too tart, dust cake with confectioner’s sugar. Each portion may be topped with a dollop of real whipped cream just before serving. Alternatively, cake may be heated and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a more Americanized version of the dessert.

Polish Papal Cream Cake Recipe

Ingredients for Polish Papal Cream Cake Recipe

  • 2 sheets (1.1-pound package) frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
  • Confectioners’ sugar
  • Polihs Pastry Cream

 

Directions for Polish Papal Cream Cake

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out each piece of puff pastry slightly to blend the seam lines. Without cutting all the way through, lightly score each pastry sheet into 9 sections. Sandwich each puff pastry sheet between two pieces of parchment paper and two cooling racks. This will keep the pastry flat but still flaky. Bake 15 minutes, remove top rack and top sheet of parchment paper. Replace rack and continue to bake until golden and crispy throughout, about 15 more minutes. Cool completely.

(If you like a thick layer of filling, make a double batch of Pastry Cream.)

  • Using a 13×9-inch pan as a mold, place one layer of cooked puff pastry in the bottom of the pan. Pour hot pastry cream over it, and place second layer of cooked puff pastry on top. Refrigerate until set. When ready to serve, using the prescored marks as guides, cut into 9 pieces. Dust each piece with confectioners’ sugar.

Ingredients for Polish Pastry Cream

  • 2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch salt
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 large egg yolks (See these leftover egg white recipes.)

 

Directions for Polish Pastry Cream
  • In a medium saucepan, bring milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, cornstarch and egg yolks to a boil, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Reduce heat slightly and continue to boil 1 minute, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to get in the corners. Take the pan off the heat and plunge it into an ice-water bath or, if you have lumps, strain it through a sieve into a pan or heatproof bowl set in ice water.
