Well the kids came back from holidaying at their grandma’s and as usual have had me on a new treat challenge. They happen to be very much responsible for my foray into uncharted cooking territories all the time. So from my first attempt at making pizza to this :making Apple pie I have the fantastic four to thank for continously bringing me out of my comfort zone. 

Apple pies though not popular with a lot of Africans can and should be tried out. I do love the sweet and tangy taste of the filling as well as the aroma of the spices used, plus the added bonus of it being vegan, I mean pies don’t have to be filled with meat alone to be tasty or  be appreciated. Do try it out this weekend. 


1/2 kg double crust pastry. 

3   large apples.

1/2tsp cinnamon.

1/2 tsp nutmeg powder.

4tbsp cornflour .

1tbsp lime/lemon juice.

2 tbsp sugar. 

EGG wash 


Wash and peel apples, decore  and deseed them. 

Cut peeled apples into thin slices and toss in the lime/lemon  juice. 

Line the inside of the pie dish with a rolled out sheet of double crust pastry. 

Mix cornflour, nutmeg and cinnamon together. 

Toss the apple slices in the dry mix. 

Fill the pastry  lined pie dish with the apple fillings.

Cover the top of the pie dish with the  remaining pastry and trim off the excess from the edges. 

Primp the edges with a fork and poke a hole on top to allow steam escape while the filling cooks. 

Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes . 

Brush the top with the egg wash and bake for another couple of minutes. 

Slice up and Enjoy.
