Apple Pie Slice

Close up of apple pie slice

Let me set the scene.  It’s about 7:30pm, and we’ve just sat down to watch a series of zombie shows on the TV.  Hubby turns to me and says “I want Pie”. OMG really, I’ve just sat down?

You don’t say anything for a bit because you think, “I couldn’t be bothered” and “He needs to learn to cook”.  Then I thought a bit more; maybe it’s best if I do the cooking.  I can only imagine what the kitchen would look like after a stint of hubby baking. 

Classes if you are local (Melbourne) or Zooms from anywhere 🙂

OK, so how do we make a quick and easy apple pie (or slice)?

This is what I came up with.  Apple pie that’s not apple pie but tastes like apple pie.  Well, you could change the apple to anything, want peach pie, or cherry pie.  Go for it.  You could do a half and half.

Method Thermomix

Equipment

  • 1 Thermomix

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tablespoon demerara or any sugar if you don’t have it
  • 1/2 teaspoon of my warming spice or cinnamon.
  • 380 g apples about 4 apples
  • 250 g Self-Raising Flour
  • 220 g Sugar
  • 125 g melted butter
  • 1 free range egg

Instructions
 

  • Pop the oven on to 180°c or 160°c fan and line a rectangularbiscotti tin, or any 20cm round cake tin.
  • Place the sugar and spice in a small bowl and mix to combine then set aside.
  • Weigh the flour and sugar into the TM bowl and mix on 5 seconds/speed 5 then remove and set aside.
  • Weigh the butter (cut into small cubes) into the TM bowl and set to melt for 4 mins/50°c/speed 3
  • In the meantime chop the apples into 1cm – 2 cm cubes. I leave the skin on, but you can remove it if you like.
  • Once the butter has melted add the egg to the TM bowl and mix 3 seconds/speed 4 -5
  • Return the flour/sugar mix and the cut apples to the TM bowl and mix for 10 seconds on reverse speed + 3
  • Scrape the contents out of the TM bowl and spread out into your lined baking tin. Don't squash down too much it will sort itself out in the oven. You want to leave it lumpy.
  • Now sprinkle the sugar/spice mix over the top and whack it in the oven.
  • It took 35 mins to bake in my oven, but just keep an eye on it. If you think the base isn't cooked yet but the top is browning too much, go for the shower cap arrangement in this blackberry ripple recipe. All ovens are different, and it will depend on what sort of pan you've chosen.

Notes

this has all the flavours of apple pie without the fuss.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp demerara or any sugar if you don’t have it
  • 1/2 tsp of my warming spice or cinnamon.
  • 380 g apples that's about 4 apples
  • 250 g Self-Raising Flour
  • 220 g Sugar
  • 125 g melted butter don’t have this too hot when you mix the egg
  • 1 free range egg

Instructions
 

  • Pop the oven on to 180° c or 160° c fan and line a 14cm (w)x 30cm (l) x 5.5cm (h) tin or small cake tin.
  • Place the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, mix well and set aside.
  • Weigh the self-rasing flour and sugar into a bowl and set aside.
  • Weight the melted butter and egg into a bowl and mix with a fork to completely combine.
  • Chop the apple into 1 – 2 cm squares and place them in a large bowl.
  • Sprinkle the flour/sugar mix over the top and mix to combine.
  • Pour the butter/egg mix over the top and mix to combine. This is going to look dry at first, and you’ll think “What, somethings wrong”, but no, it isn’t, keep going you’ll get there.
  • Now that everything is mixed tip the crumbly mixture into the tin and spread it around as best you can. Don’t press it down too firmly; it’s nicer crumbly. 😉
  • Now sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mix on top and whack it in the oven.
  • It took 35 mins to bake on moist fan in my oven, but just keep an eye on it. If you think the base isn't cooked yet but the top is browning too much go for the shower cap arrangement I've shown in the past. All ovens are different and it will depend on what sort of pan you've chosen.

    Honestly this is so easy and so good! I could eat it for breakfast lunch AND dinner! I’ve also successfully tripled the recipe to feed a crowd and LOVE that Bec has done all the hard work there to allow me to do that! A winner! 🍏🍎🍏🍎🍏

  2. I have made this twice and both times it still wasn’t fully cooked after 60 mins, in the oven for the third time now for 70 mins still bamboo skewer not coming out clean Had to put alfoil over the top As it’s browning too much

    1. Hi Sue. It has to be cooked. Your skewer will have bits stuck to it because of the nature of the recipe. Take it out and leave it to cool. Once cold slice it. Why do you think it’s raw?
