Apple pie again? Oh yes, because this time there is a very classic variant. The three other recipes on veganevibes.de are each two sponge cakes, one gluten-free and one with caramelized apples. For all those who have missed a very classic apple pie with crumble, can now breathe a sigh of relief. This time is nix with oil-free, gluten-free or other schnick schnack. Simply a classic apple pie, just like grandma would make. Well let’s be honest, my grandma doesn’t bake anymore, because she is now 95 and is rather happy when the mobile baker comes by with his sales cart. The Nuss Zopf is supposed to be the best ever, which is why it is often sold out so quickly. It’s interesting how times have changed, I’m thinking of my grandma’s tubular noodles, for example. They were fried out in oodles of fat and I’d be lying if they weren’t delicious.

I really thought long and hard about making this recipe. why? Because I now simply bake differently, without margarine and preferably with wholesome ingredients. You may have also noticed that many recipes are oil-free and/or gluten-free. That said, I think a good blog needs a solid, classic, vegan apple pie. There are also some people out there who are just starting to eat vegan and are looking for simple and familiar recipes. With this wonderful cake you can definitely convince even your mother-in-law. Would you like another dollop of vegan cream?

Basically, the cake consists of three layers, starting with the base of shortbread, apple slices and sprinkles. I’ll be honest, I love sprinkles in all variations. Together with the acid from the apples a dream!

Shortbread, sprinkles, apples? Coming!

You can prepare this recipe wonderfully, especially the shortcrust pastry. It can spend a night in the refrigerator, no problem. By itself, this apple pie holds up wonderfully and even gets better with time once it’s properly infused. By the way, if you are interested in the ingredients of apples in more detail, you can find an article here.

Otherwise, honestly, not much can go wrong. Nevertheless, I have summarized all tips and tricks for you here once again:

  • The mold should preferably be one with a loose bottom, or a classic springform pan with a diameter of 28cm
  • I use Alsan organic margarine because it has proven best over the years. Alternatively, a coconut oil might still work (because it solidifies at low temperatures). I have not yet tried a production with alternative oils, do you perhaps have a tip for the community?
  • The consistency of the shortbread dough should be compact, but neither too firm nor too soft. You should be able to loosely form a ball with your hands. If in doubt, use a little more flour (if too liquid) or more vegetable milk (if too solid). Feel free to look at the video, there you can see how my dough looks like.
  • I use tart apples because they contrast nicely with the sweet crumble. Apples that are too sweet tend to make the cake a bit boring.
  • Always allow cake to cool thoroughly after baking before cutting. Otherwise, it may fall apart.
  • For a gluten-free option, I would use a gluten-free flour and add in 1 tsp of carob bean gum for better binding. Note: I have not yet tested the gluten-free version.
