Even Geeks Can Cook (Part 1): Fruit Pie Made Easy

This post is the first of my new series called Even Geeks Can Cook.

Cooking is a rather algorithmic activity. Thus, it can be fun even for geeks. Believe it or not, the following recipe can be implemented in 15 minutes (not including baking time) with no cooking skills required. You can even make use of your geek skills during the implementation process. (For example, being familiar with the concept of uniform distribution may come in handy.)


  • 250 g flour
  • 200 g sugar
  • 10 g vanilla sugar
  • 12 g baking powder
  • 1 dl milk
  • 1 dl cooking oil
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • canned fruits (sour cherry, peach)

Mix the flour, sugar, vanilla sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, milk, cooking oil and the eggs (not including eggshells) in a bowl and stir them well to make a smooth paste. Put parchment paper in a pan then pour the paste into it.

Now it’s time to deal with the fruits! You can choose the amount of fruits to your own taste. Drain all fruits through a sieve to get rid of any liquid. Chop the peaches into small pieces. Roll the fruits in some flour (you can use 1 tablespoon of flour for both fruits). Add the fruits to the pan distributing them uniformly.

Ready for baking (observe the distribution of fruits!)

Preheat the oven to 180 celsius and bake the pan for 30 minutes. That’s all!

Thanks to my friends, Laci, Lívia and Zsuzsa for being my beta testers. (They seemed pretty satisfied with the results.) Special thanks go to Móni for the excellent recipe.
