The "Apfelwähe" is a Swiss Classic for almost every occasion- it`s not a heavy cake and prepared very quickly.
You can enjoy it for breakfast, brunch, dessert or an afternoon coffee. The scent alone, when the apple pie is baking in the oven, is wonderful. You should eat the pie still hot – even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
