Welcome to the vegan version of our favourite Dutch Apple Pie! The pastry is DELICIOUS, the apples are tender and the custard powder adds just the right amount of smooth and decadent mouthfeel! If you’ve been craving an apple pie this is definitely the one for you! Seriously, I’ve made this pie 4 times in the last month for my family 😛
If you’ve been to the Netherlands (I’m sure other northern european countries also have a similar version) you know exactly which pie I’m talking about!
You can order it almost anywhere.
It is amazing no matter where you buy it.
It’s like the Dutch just can’t get this recipe wrong .
I remember even having a slice at a small train station in the middle of nowhere while visiting my cousin 🤔 I was young, so that memory may be somewhat romanticised 😊 But a warm slice with some whipped
cream coconut cream and a hot drink is just a dream come true, especially on a cold day!
The first time I veganised this recipe it was for my dad’s birthday. That morning was a mess in all the right ways!
That day was a complete chill day surrounded by yummy food . The pie didn’t even see the sunset!
Ermmmm, there are only four of us in the house!
It is definitely a cake you want to eat while it’s fresh, but it can last four days in an airtight container 😀
This pastry is like the Dutch version of shortbread. So it is super yummy and quite versatile. They make amazing cookies too! I've even used it as the crust for Pecan Pie 😀
I wonder if it could be a savoury crust 🤔 I’m going to try and let you guys know!
Enjoy!! Let me know in the comments if you’ve made this recipe! I’d love to hear what you thought and if you made any changes!
Vegan Apple Pie
- Sieve the flour, add the sugar and salt.
- Mix in the melted coconut oil.
- Add the flax egg and mix throughly.
- Peel and slice the apples.
- Toss the apple slices in the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon and custard powder to coat them.
Assemble and Bake!
- Press ¾ of the pastry dough into a greased tin (you can use a pottery or pyrex dish, just grease it properly otherwise it will stick - trust me... been there 😅). Keep ¼ for decorating (optional).
