This is my post number 666... So, I'm gonna post something devilish for you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

TORTA MENEGHINA (MILANO)



INGREDIENTS for 4 people

4 eggs
10,5 ounces white flour
7 ounces of chestnuts flour
1 small bag of yeast
7 ounces of sugar
4 spoons of olive oil
1 glass of milk
3,3 pounds of apples

PREPARATION (It must be prepared the day before you want to eat it)
- Beat the eggs with the flour. Then add the other ingredients, except for the apples;
- Skin the apples and cut them in slices;
- Put the apple in the dough and mix;
- Cover an oven pan with some butter, and pour the dough in it;
- Put the dough in the oven. Set the oven at 200 degrees, and cook for 40 minutes (more or less);
- Once it's done, dust it with the chestnuts flour;
- Let it rest in a dry and warm place.

HOW TO SERVE IT:
- Cut a good slice, and put it on the dish;
- Serve, and put on the table a bottle of liquour;
- Each one should soak its slice with the dose of liquour they prefer.

WHIC LIQUOR TO USE:
My grandmother always said to use Grand Marnier, because of its orange flavour. But to keep it milanÚs, I suppore you could soak your slice with a good dose of Fernet. But i think you can use any liquor you want, as long it has fruit or herbs flavour.

ENJOY.
