The smell of an apple pie in September… Is there a better way to celebrate the beginning of the fall? When the temperature gets down, the oven goes on. LOL! This apple pie is one of the easiest ones to make. It doesn’t require special skills or weird ingredients. So let’s make it!
- 100 gr whole grain wheat flour
- 100 gr plain white flour
- 50 gr of ground hazelnuts
- 30 gr soy butter
- 20 gr or more brown sugar
- A pinch of salt and baking soda
- Lukewarm water enough to make a dough, approximately 100 ml
- 2 – 3 apples
- Cinnamon and nutmeg about one teaspoon each
- 1 – 2 tablespoons wheat germ
- Malt or any other liquid sweetener*
- Water just enough to start the blender
- + fine oats for on the bottom before baking
- First make the crust. Mix all dry ingredients and then add the butter. Use your hands to make the dough. Add slowly one by one spoon of water and work it until you get the dough. Leave the dough to rest for 30 min or longer.
- While the dough is resting, make the filling. Put all ingredients except for water in your blender. Add just enough water to be able to make a sauce.
- Get back to the dough. Use then your rolling pin to make the bottom of the pie about half a centimetre thick. You should use not more than half of the dough. Keep the other half for the cover. Butter the bottom and the sides of the baking dish. Set now the dough in the round shape baking tray. Use a fork to make small holes on the bottom and sides and set it in the oven on 200 C for about 10 min.
- Get it out of the oven, sprinkle the bottom with some oats and then pour the apple sauce over it. From the leftover of the dough, make the cover. Now put it all in the preheated oven to 180 degrees and bake it for about an hour.
- * I added 1 tablespoon of malt because I like when the apple pie is more sour than sweet but you can add as much as you want or even leave it out.
Now make some nice tea and serve it with some ice cream. You can choose some of the recipes on this website or make that one ingredient ice cream with bananas.
