Apple pie without sugar: that’s what you need
Apple pie is also sugar-sweet without sugar. You just need the right alternatives.
- The dough consists of 200g finely ground wholemeal spelled flour, 125g soft butter, four eggs, and 125g honey.
- Also included is a tablespoon of lemon juice and the grated zest of a lemon.
- Every dough needs a pinch of salt and a leavening agent. For your apple pie, use two teaspoons of cream of tartar.
- In addition to the dough, you will need four more apples. The Boskop variety is particularly suitable, but you can also use other types of apples for baking.
- The topping also includes 50g butter, 40g honey, the juice of half a lemon, and 100g walnut kernels.
Recipe: Bake apple pie without sugar
First, prepare the apples for the topping and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Peel the apples, quarter them and remove the core. Cut the apple pieces in a fan shape on the back. Squeeze some lemon juice on top and cover the apples to prevent them from browning.
- Now turn your attention to the dough: separate the eggs into whites and yolks. Beat the egg whites stiff with a pinch of salt.
- Now mix the butter and honey to a creamy mass and stir in the egg yolk, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
- Sift the flour mixed with the baking powder and stir into the cream.
- The next step is to fold the stiff egg whites into the mixture and place them in a greased springform pan.
- Now you can distribute the apples on the dough.
- Heat the honey and butter for the topping and add the walnuts. Spread the mixture over the apples and put the cake in the oven.
- After 45 minutes of baking time on the middle shelf, the cake should be ready – do the skewer test.
- Then leave the finished apple pie in the springform pan for a few more minutes before letting it cool on a wire rack.
