Easy, yummy and healthy. Best description to this amazing recipe! I do eat ”normal” cakes, of course. But you know, why not being a bit healthier if you can? This recipe tastes just like a real Apple pie but it’s healthier and easier to make! You don’t need any strange ingredients, so is also pretty possible to make this without going to the supermarket. I just hate to go to the supermarket just for one single ingredient, you too? hahaha. Anyway, let’s start with this amazing recipe!
For the crust/pastry; (Make this recipe 2 times if you one crust for the bottom and one for the top)
-1 cup all-purpose flour (140gr)
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/4 cup plus 1-2 tbsp. oil of your choice (is better if you use an oil wich doesn’t have a strong flavor) (5-6 tbsp.)
-2 1/2 tablespoons ice water (add more water if is necessary)
For the filling:
-55 g unsalted butter of your choice (1/4 cup)
-25 g all-purpose flour (3 tbsp.)
-60 ml water (1/4 cup)
-110 g packed brown sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar or brown coconut sugar)
-8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced
-1 tsp. cinnamon
For the crust/pastry;
1. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
2. In a glass measuring cup, combine 1/4 cup plus 1-2 tablespoons oil and 2 1/2 tablespoons ice water. Whisk them together until creamy. Immediately pour all at once into flour and toss with a fork. Form into a ball. Dough will be moist. If you want to cover completely the Apple Pie make the crust recipe another time to have one for the bottom and another one for the top.
3.Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water and brown sugar and cinnamon, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
4.Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly.Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the apples. Cover with the other crust and make some holes with a knife.
5.Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
