  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 12 tablespoons butter
  • 2.5 cups white flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1/2 cup ground walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon coffee grounds
  • 1 lemon
  • 12 apples (medium)
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 34 tablespoons powdered sugar


  1. Heat oven to 390F.
  2. In a larger pot, mix two eggs with a hand mixer. Add milk, sugar, oil, butter, and continue mixing until it becomes one mass. Add flour, cocoa, walnuts and baking powder. Continue mixing with the hand mixer. Add coffee and grated skin of one lemon. Mix again until the mass is thick, but smooth and movable.
  3. Peel and core apples, then grate all of them. Add 1/2 tablespoon sugar and simmer on low for about 7-8 minutes. When done, add cinnamon and mix. Set aside.
  4. Pour one half of the crust mixture into an oiled pan (9-in X 13.5-in) and spread evenly. Place in oven and bake for 7-8 minutes. Do the toothpick* test to see whether the bottom crust is baked although not completely finished, just hard enough so that the filling and the mass for the second crust can be placed on top.
  5. Take the pan out of the oven, and spread the apple filling over it evenly. Pour the second half of the crust over the filling, and again spread evenly. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Do the toothpick test to see when it’s finished. Take out of the oven and let cool.
  6. Dust the pie with powdered sugar, and cut into squares. Keep in fridge for up to a few days.


*Toothpick test – prick the baked good in a few places with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, the baking is done. If you crumbs and stickiness on the toothpick, give it a little more time and repeat.
