Cooking a lean pie in a slow cooker:

Step 1: making tea.

Pour black tea into a glass and immediately pour it with boiling water. To make it well brewed, be sure to cover the container with a saucer and leave it aside for a while. Let the drink cool to a warm state, and in the meantime we will prepare the remaining ingredients.

Step 2: prepare the flour.

To make the cake lush and tender, first of all, we need to sift the flour. To do this, pour it into a sieve and perform this operation directly above a large bowl. Thanks to this process, the component will be saturated with oxygen, which will contribute to the preparation of a good air test.

Step 3: prepare the dough for the pie.

Pour cocoa powder, sugar, ground cinnamon, and instant coffee into a bowl of sifted flour. Then, using a tablespoon, mix everything thoroughly until smooth.

Now we pour warm tea here and in parallel we beat everything with a manual whisk or with a mixer at medium speed so that no lumps appear. We should get a liquid dough. We leave it aside for now, and in the meantime prepare the apple.

Step 4: prepare the apple.

We wash the apple under running warm water, shake off excess liquid, and then put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, peel the fruit from the peel and then cut it in half. From each part we remove the seeds and the stalk. Before adding the component to the dough, it must be crushed. We can do this in two ways. First: using a coarse grater, grate the apple slices directly on the cutting board, and then move the chips into a free plate.
The second (I like this option more, because the fruit aroma is felt more strongly in the pie): just chop the component into pieces using a knife.

Step 5: prepare a lean pie in a slow cooker.

Put the crushed apple in a bowl with the dough and with the help of a tablespoon we mix everything thoroughly until smooth. Now, using a pastry brush, grease the bottom and walls of the multicooker pan with a small amount of vegetable oil.

Pour the dough here immediately. Attention: Do not forget to add vegetable oil to it, then the cake will turn out to be soft and buttery, which will make it much tastier. Next, close the lid of the appliance, turn on baking mode and cook the dish for 65 minutes. After the allotted time has passed, a signal will sound. Immediately after that, open the multicooker lid and see how much the cake has baked. Its surface should become dense and slightly golden. If so, then we take out the pie using the steam tray and set it aside. If not, then close the lid and extend the cooking time. for 15-25 minutes on the same mode. In the end, be sure to let the pastries cool completely and only after that we can serve it to the dessert table.

Step 6: serve the lean pie in the slow cooker.

When the lean cake becomes warm, put it on a special flat plate, use the knife to cut it into portions and we can safely serve it with tea, coffee and other drinks to the dessert table. Help yourself, because the baking is obtained "with a bang"!
Bon appetit to all!

Recipe Tips:

- Before serving the cake, you can sprinkle with powdered sugar. In this embodiment, the baking should cool completely, otherwise the loose component will begin to melt;

- if you want a very airy dough, then I advise you to sift the flour at least twice;

- Guests can be invited to pour the cake with topping, jam, condensed milk and just berry syrup.
