Cut the Ambrosia™ apples with the peel in thin slices of about 4-5 mm, sprinkle with lemon juice and put aside. Use a spoon to mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, oil and water to a soft dough in a large bowl. Butter and flour a cake pan with a diameter of 26 cm and roll out the dough with your hands.
Spread the jam over the dough (a thin layer is enough); put aside a little bit of jam. Arrange the apples by slightly overlapping them. Dilute the remaining jam with a little bit of water (about 1 teaspoon) and cook in the microwave or on the cooker. Brush the apples with jam and sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts. Bake in the lower part of the preheated oven at 180°C for about 35-40 minutes until golden yellow. Cover the apples with aluminum foil after half the baking time.
Keeps fresh for 3 days but it always gets eaten up quickly!!!
If you wish, you can add the zest of one lemon or vanilla to the base and cinnamon to the apples.
