Vegan Salted Caramel Apple Pie

Friday, 5 May 2017


When my housemate moved out she left loads of apples, so I decided to bake them into a pie. This is my own take on an already existing recipe which is much more profesh' and doesn't look like... well what mine looks like, but it's bloody tasty though.

You will need:_____________________________________________________________________

A lot of apples (1 kg to be precise)
Short crust pastry (pre-bought because lazy)
1 tbsp of cinnamon 
1 tsp of nutmeg 

For Caramel:
4 tbsp of vegan margarine/butter (vitalite works)
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of soy milk  
1 tsp of vanilla extract 
1 tsp of course sea salt 

Instructions:______________________________________________________________________

1- Line a deepish' baking pot with vegan butter
2- Roll out pre bought pastry (because you a lazy shit) and cut to size, save some for the top 
3- Cut up apples into small 1cm cubes 
4- Make caramel: Heat a pan and melt the butter. Once melted combine with sugar and other ingredients. It will look like it's all gone wrong and be very liquidy' but bare with and wait for it to reduce. Once reduced and thicker in consistency turn heat down to simmer 
5- Heat the apples in a pan with cinnamon and once sweated and steaming (ew) add half of the caramel (leave some for the pie)
6- Once apples are cooked and smell divine, pour them into the laid out pastry and pour extra caramel over the top
7- Cut the top pastry pieces into strips and attempt to create a lattice 
8- Fail at making a lattice but fuck it, it looks rustic anyway 
9- Bake in the oven for 30/45 mins, if the top begins to burn wrap it in tin foil
10- Serve with vegan ice cream (if you're richer than me), nicecream or just plain ol' soy cream or (if you're really sad and skint) nothing; it tastes great on its own 

It could look better I know, but that's the thing with apple pies it looks rustic and who cares, it tastes so nice. Apples and salted caramel are made to be together, you're welcome!

If you've got a bag of apples lying around why don't you give this a go?
