Peel the apples, remove the seeds, cut them into four slices and then into thin slices; pour the apples in a large bowl and add sugar, pine nuts, lemon zest, a pinch of cinnamon and raisins well drained and squeezed: the ingredients must release their perfume.

Put to melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Then resume the loaf of dough and roll it out on a lightly floured towel, forming a rectangle about 35×45. Brush the surface, except the edges, with a little melted butter and sprinkle with toasted breadcrumbs; this layer will serve to absorb the juices that the apples release  in cooking.

Put the mixture on top of it with apples; roll the cake from the longest part, taking care not to break up the dough; seal also on the sides so that the content does not come out during cooking.

Then place the cake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, with the closure facing down and, before baking, brush it with melted butter. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 ° for about 40 minutes (if ventilated at 180 ° for 30 minutes). After cooking, you can sprinkle the cake with sugar and serve warm and cut into slices.
