Apple Pie

Apple Pie is probably one of the few dishes where everybody agrees: Apple Pie is great! Sweet, juicy apples between a golden crust with glaze – divine.

Very simple without rum or raisins is this a classic recipe, which my family loves. They always ask me to make it, when we meet for cake and coffee.

I make this pie in my ceramic pie dish. But you can also use a springform pan. First make the filling so that it can cool down a bit, before you spread it on the crust.

Then make the dough and press it in the dish.

Cover with rolled out dough and decorate with the leftovers. Like I did this time with the leaves.

On Valentines Day I made the pie with hearts and red glaze.

Apple Pie
Gang/Type: Dessert
Ergibt/Yield: 1 Pie - 12 Pieces
For the filling:
  • 600 g (21.2 oz) apples
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 500 g (17.6 oz) apple sauce

For the dough:
  • 325 g (11.5 oz) white flour - spelt or wheat
  • 1 tbsp soy flour
  • 75 g (2.6 oz) cane sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch vanilla
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) non-dairy milk
  • 100 g vegan butter, in small pieces

For the glaze:
  • 80 g (2.8 oz) powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp non-dairy milk
  1. Peel the apples, de-seed and cut in small pieces. Drizzle over the lemon juice. In a pot bring the apples and apple sauce to boil. Let simmer for 10 minutes, then let cool a bit. Grease a pie dish or springform pan (26 cm - 10 inches ø).

  2. Knead all ingredients for the dough until a soft dough forms. Halve it and roll out the dough on the dusted counter, about 5 mm (0.2 inches) thick. Place one dough piece in the pie dish and form a crust. Don't forget the sides. Prick the bottom with a fork a couple of times. Spread the apples on the dough.

  3. Add the other rolled out dough on top of the apples. Press the edges together and use a toothpick to add some holes where hot air can escape.

  4. Place the cake in the cold oven and turn it on to 200° C (390° F). Bake for 30 - 35 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and let cool in the dish on a cooling rack.

  5. Combine the ingredients for the glaze and spread on the lukewarm pie.
The pie tastes great, when it's warm. Heat it in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes at 100° C (120° F).

    Sehr lecker und einfach in der Zubereitung. Funktioniert auch super mit Hafermilch statt Sojamilch.
