Flotni (israelic cake)

For the dough:

  1. 500g flower
  2. 300g butter
  3. 100g sugar
  4. 1/2 glas white wine
  5. 4 eggs
  6. 1 egg for the coat


Mix everything and put the dough in the fridge for one hour.
After that you separate it into 5 pieces.

For the filling you’ll need:
Take an oven-safe form, not too small, an add first a layer of dough, then a layer of the filling, then a layer of dough and so on, until the last layer of dough lays on top.

1. layer:

  • 1 glas plum butter
  • 250g grinded nuts
  • 1 bag raising (if you like them)

Start with a layer of dough first, then add the rest
2. layer:

  • 50g honey
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 3 soup spoons of white wine

Always start with a layer of dough!
You can either mix all three together or put them on separately.
3. layer:

  • 2 bags of poppy seeds

4. layer:

  • 4 cut up apples

They might not all fit and remember, you still need a cover topping of dough.
On the top coat of the dough you whisk a egg and spread it on it. The last thing you do is pull lines with a fork.
Bake for one hour at 175 C° Celsius. Enjoy! (It will feed a lot of people)
