Swedish Apple Pie

I had some apples which I needed to use this week and I was tired of doing the same old same old and so I did a search on google and came up with this.  I confess I had my doubts when I encountered this recipe on

It was so simple . . .  no crust per se, and no leavening.   How could this work?  Its been my experience however, that simple things are oftimes the best things, and so I crossed my fingers and went with the flow!  I took a chance.

Wow!  This was so simple and quick to put together.  You just slice the apples and dump them into the pie tin, sprinkle them with a little bit of sugar and cinnamon and then pour the batter over top and bake.

Leave it to the Swedes to come up with something which is totally streamlined and totally tasty.  That is their hallmark in design and clearly with cooking also!

The batter is simply melted butter, sugar, an egg and flour.  It shouldn’t work, but it does . . .  amazingly! 

The apples are sweet and soft, without being overly so.  You will want them to be a bit tart because there is pleny of sweetness in that crisp and buttery batter topping.  Oh boy, oh boy.   It is a day later and I cannot walk by this without wanting to dig in and have just a smidgen more.

It is one of the  MOST delicious apple desserts I have ever baked.  Seriously.  Talk about Hygge.  Comfort.  Sweet comfort.   I know you probably only just started a diet and its too soon to break it, but hey.  Some things you just don’t want to miss!

*Swedish Apple Pie*

Serves 6


This is simple to make and delicious.  Todd loves it.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. 

6 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced

1 TBS sugar

1 tsp apple pie spice (see my side bar)

170g of butter, melted (3/4 cup)

190g sugar (1 cup)

1 large free range egg, beaten

140g flour (1 cup)

pinch salt

60g chopped toasted walnuts (1/2 cup)

Vanilla ice cream to serve (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4.  

Butter a 9 inch deep fill pie dish.   Put the apples into the dish.  Sprinkle with the sugar and then the cinnamon.  Whisk together the butter, sugar, egg flour and salt until smooth.  Stir in the nuts and then pour this over top of the apples to cover.  Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes until set and golden brown.   

Allow to cool until just warm before serving.  Cut into wedges to serve.  Serve warm with ice cream if desired.

Seriously you really do WANT to bake this.   I wouldn’t couldn’t lie about something as serious as dessert.  I guarantee it will become a firm favourite in your repertoire.  If you  ever find yourself in need of a quick and simple dessert that will blow your guests socks off . . .  this is THE one!

Bon Appetit and Happy Weekend!
