My grandfather is nuts about apple pie. At birthdays, you don’t have to ask him what pie he wants, and he is actually actively disappointed when you decided to go crazy and not make the regular apple pie this year.
When his birthday was coming up, I knew exactly what to give him.
Since my grandmother’s passing years ago, we celebrate his birthday by going out to a restaurant. They probably have apple pie. But not this one. Oh, no.
Convinced yet? Here’s the recipe:
1 1/2 cups (375 grams) of all-purpose flour
4 tsp of baking powder
1 cup (225 grams) vegan butter (melted)
3/4 cup (200 grams) sugar
1 tsp vanille extract
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp soy milk
4/5 big apples
Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).
Cut the apples in little pieces. Add the cinnamon and raisins to taste. Add some extra sugar if you like it very sweet. If not, don’t. Personally I don’t, because I like the freshness of the apples.
Put the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix it together. Add the wet ingredients (the butter, vanilla extract, and soymilk). Knead it into a nice, solid dough that does not stick. If it sticks, add some extra flower.
Make sure the cake pan you’re using is lightly oiled so it doesn’t burn. Put about 3/4 of the the dough on the bottom and sides of the cakepan. Put in the apples. Add some more flour to the remaining dough and lightly whisk it together so it crumbles. Put the crumbles evenly on the apples. Bake for 45-60 minutes.
Enjoy! If you make this pie, I’d love to see it! Please tag me or use the hashtag #noanimalsinthekitchen or #thehappyspoonieproject, thank you! Also, shares are appreciated! Help a blogger out ;]
