Apple Pie Without Sugar – That’s How It Works

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.

  1. 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.
  2. Now turn your attention to the dough: separate the eggs into whites and yolks. Beat the egg whites stiff with a pinch of salt.
  3. Now mix the butter and honey to a creamy mass and stir in the egg yolk, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  4. Sift the flour mixed with the baking powder and stir into the cream.
  5. The next step is to fold the stiff egg whites into the mixture and place them in a greased springform pan.
  6. Now you can distribute the apples on the dough.
  7. 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.
  8. After 45 minutes of baking time on the middle shelf, the cake should be ready – do the skewer test.
  9. Then leave the finished apple pie in the springform pan for a few more minutes before letting it cool on a wire rack.
