“Apple pie and coffee” part two

Attention! Some sort of sweet giddiness is guaranteed. Right after the last apple pie recipe, I’ll have another one for you. This time apples and cinnamon (Oh! what a surprise!) jump into a swirl of dough turning into *drum rolls* these moist apple pie rolls.

I love these fruity whirls. They can be prepared and baked in no time. You don’t have to wait which is normally the case for a yeast dough. But these fellas aren’t made with yeast. I found a nice and easy alternative which doesn’t need to rise before the baking process. Among other ingredients, you will need oil and quark. Quark? I know, you might not find that in your local supermarket. Don’t worry! You can easily substitute it with yogurt or a similar dairy product which has at least 20% fat.

Before giving you my recipe, I would like to explain the subtitle “apple pie and coffee”:

It’s more or less the title of one of my father’s anecdotes. And it is a German joke. My father’s version starts with a German politician who has to go to Great Britain but isn’t really able to speak the language. The only words he can speak without problems are “apple pie and coffee” … . My father tells this joke (it’s a bit longer, of course) every time we have appe pie for coffee tea time. He told it when we had Granny’s apple pie and he would have told it while nibbling on these fruity rolls. But I have been faster. Hihi! Well, these four words are now a running gag and they even made it onto my blog.

For the apple and cinnamon filling:
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven (air circulation) to 356F ( 180°C) and grease a cupcake tray.
  2. Mix quark (or the alternative) with oil and milk until smooth. Then add salt, sugar and vanilla sugar.
  3. Mix flour and baking powder. Use dough hooks of your mixer to gradually combine flour with the quark mixture. After that you should be able to form a dough ball.
  4. Roll the dough until rectangular. It should be at least the size of your standard baking tray. Spread the soft butter onto it.
  5. Mix brown sugar with cinnamon and spread it onto the dough as well.
  6. Peel, core and cut the apples into very small pieces. Spread them on the dough.
  7. Furl the dough alongside so that you have a long but rather slender roll. Cut the roll into equal pieces (about 1 to 1.5 inches)
  8. Put the pieces with the flat side down into the cupcake tray and bake them for 20 to 25 minutes.
Recipe Notes

As you may have noticed, I baked my apple pie rolls in cupcake wrappers. You can do that to but keep in mind that the wrappers will stick to the rolls like glue.
