Healthy, because

Even smarter

The wholemeal spelt flour is slightly nutty in taste and makes the cake full-bodied. An advantage of this flour: the high proportion of husk contains more minerals than conventional white flour. And the fibre content is naturally higher - this makes the intestines work and keeps you full for a long time.

Raisins or cranberries, for example, provide more variety in the filling. Walnuts, hazelnuts or sunflower seeds also cut a good figure in the filling and give it more crunch.


For the dough
300 grams Pastry flour
½ teaspoon salt
100 grams sugar
125 grams butter
125 milliliters milk

Preparation steps


For the dough: Combine flour with salt and sugar. Cut butter into cubes and add and knead with the flour. Then add as much milk as needed until dough is smooth but not sticky. Divide dough into 2 parts and roll out both parts. Grease a pie dish, line it with a half of the dough, pulling to edges and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).


For the filling: Rinse apples, peel, cut in half, remove seeds and cut into strips. Mix apple strips with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon and pour onto pie dough. Place second half of the rolled dough over the apples. Press upper dough crust to lower dough crust and squeeze well. Cut off leftover dough around edge and decorate the middle of the pie crust. Bake pie in preheated oven until golden brown for about 40 minutes. Then remove from oven, sprinkle with sugar and serve lukewarm cut into pieces.
