Nutrition: per serving



  • 350 g Plain Flour
  • 225 g Butter Unsalted, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg Beaten
  • 1 kg Apples Peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp Butter Unsalted, softened


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C (180°C fan)/gas mark 6.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the plain flour, 2 tablespoons of caster sugar, and a pinch of salt.
  • Add the cold butter pieces and use your fingertips to rub them into the flour mixture until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Add the beaten egg to the mixture and mix until the dough comes together. Divide the dough into two portions, one slightly larger than the other.
  • Roll out the larger portion of the dough on a floured surface to fit a 23cm pie dish. Gently press the dough into the bottom of the dish and up the sides.
  • In another large bowl, combine the chopped apples, 100g of caster sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and plain flour. Mix well.
  • Pour the apple mixture into the pie dish and dot it with softened butter.
  • Roll out the smaller portion of the dough on a floured surface to form the top of the pie. Lay it over the top of the apple filling and trim the edges to fit the dish.
  • Use a fork to press the edges of the dough together to seal the pie.
  • Cut a few slits in the top of the pie to allow steam to escape.
  • Bake the apple pie in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  • After baking, let the pie cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. You can serve the apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if you like.
