Originally this cake is called the smile of the mother-in-law. Odd name, isn’t it? It does not disturb the cake to be interesting and quite delicious though. Mix of apples and a custard is an intriguing combination and I certainly liked it. I found the recipe here long time ago and just recently prepared it. Enjoy!


450 g flour

250 g butter

1 cup icing su gar

1 egg

2 egg yolks

2 tbsp dense sour cream

1 tsp baking powder

Knead all the ingredients. Divide the dough in two parts: one refrigerate and one put in the freezer for two hours.


1.5 kg apples or less

80 g custard powder (40 g per ½ l milk)

4 tbsp sugar

750 ml milk

icing sugar

few tbsp bread crumbs

Prepare square baking form (23 cm or bigger) and line it with baking paper. Take the dough from refrigerator and line the form with it (or roll it and place it in the form). Poke it with a fork and pre-bake for a few minutes at 160°C. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.

Peel the apples, divide them in 1/8ths and arrange them on a pre-baked bottom.

Prepare the custard using 750 ml milk and 4 tbsp sugar. Hot custard pour over the apples and on top of it grate the dough from the freezer.

Bake at 200°C around 45 minutes.  Cool down and sprinkle with icing sugar.
