For the shortcrust pastry, flour, 125 g sugar, 1 packet of vanilla sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl mix. Add 2 eggs and fat in flakes and knead with the dough hook of the hand mixer.
Knead into a smooth dough with floured hands. Cover the dough and let it cool for about 15 minutes. Roll out 2/3 of the dough on a well floured work surface into a circle (34 cm Ø). Place in a tart pan (29 cm Ø) with a removable base lined with baking paper.
Lightly press the bottom and edge. Prick several times with a fork. Chill for another 20 minutes. Put the rest of the dough in a cool place. In the meantime, wash, peel and halve the apples, cut out the core.
Cut the apple halves into cubes. Wash the mint, pat dry, pluck the leaves from the stems and cut into strips. Mix 50 ml apple juice and pudding powder until smooth. Bring the apples, apple juice, remaining vanilla sugar and remaining sugar to the boil.
Reduce for approx. 10 minutes over low heat. Bring to the boil again and stir in the mixed sauce powder. Bring to the boil and remove from the stove. Fold in the mint strips. Roll out the remaining shortcrust pastry on a floured work surface to a lid (29 cm Ø) and prick several times.
Sprinkle the shortcrust pastry base with breadcrumbs. Spread the apples evenly on top. Press the shortcrust crust slightly towards the middle of the apples. Separate the rest of the egg. Whisk the egg white. Brush the edge of the dough with it.
Place the lid on it and press the edge on. Bake the cake in the preheated oven (electric stove: 175 ° C / gas: level 2) on the lowest rack for about 45 minutes. Whisk the egg yolks and cream together. Brush the lid with egg yolk 10 minutes before the end of the baking time.
Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool on a rack. Serve decorated with mint and apple if you like. Whipped cream tastes good with it.
