    Time to prepare:

    preparation time 25 minutes
    cooking/baking time 2 minutes
    steeping/resting time 6 hours

    Step 1

    For the apple pie crust, put all the ingredients in a high-performance blender and mix to a coarse-grained mass.

    Step 2

    Line the bottom of the cake tin with baking paper, spread the mixture evenly over it and press down. Then put it in the fridge.

    Step 3

    Rinse the blender jar briefly and add all the ingredients for the cream – except for the psyllium husks and lemon zest.

    Using the pestle, puree the whole thing for a few minutes until you get a smooth cream.

    Then add the lemon zest and the psyllium husks and mix in briefly.

    Step 4

    Take the base out of the fridge and spread it evenly with the cream.

    Then carefully slide the cake tin onto the work surface to squeeze out any air that is still in the cream.

    Step 5

    Then chill the cake for approx. 6 hours.

    Step 6

    Before serving, garnish the apple cake with the apple slices, mint and pistachios and enjoy.
