I planned to post this sooner, but because of the broken laptop I wasn’t able to. But right now I’m typing this post on my stepdads Toshiba laptop, the thing runs on Vista Basic and has one of those Celeron M-processors… Bleh…
Anyhow, I made this Chocolate Apple pie for christmas, as a dessert after the huge amount of meat that was munched away by my friends. The first time I made it there was normal butter and an egg in it. But although I made myself a vegan version of the meal, I didn’t want to make a dessert for myself as well. Since I wanted to re-make this recipe again this seemed the perfect time. My friends soaks it in whiped cream, I went for powdered sugar.
For this one I didn’t change to much, except the amout of the ingredients, since I made I full size pie instead of the smaller one I made the first time, but I dont’think that matters. I replaced the butter in this recipe with vegan butter. Margerine is always an option, but you should check if it doens’t have some milk in it.
I found mine in one of the bigger supermarkets. I replaced the egg with an commercial egg replacement.
The last thing I changed is that I reduced the chocolate in the pie. In the original recipe I put some chocolate in the apple pie filling, but I thought I was just to much (yes, to much chocolate is possible). I just went for the classic here: sugar cinnamon and you could add some raisins if you want (and soak them in some water)
What do you need? (old)
- 430 gr of flour
- 90 gr. of sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1,5 tablespoon of cocoa
- 250 gr. of vegan butter (cold)
- 2-3 tablespoons of ice cold water
- 2 egg’ (eggreplacement)
- apples, I used about 7, but I had really small ones
Start by making the crust of the pie by making a dough of the flour, sugar, ‘butter’, ‘egg’, salt, vanilla, cacao en cinnamon. Cover in clean film and put in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
While that is baking, cut the apple into small bits and cover in cinnamon and maybe some sugar. Cover and put in the refrigerator.
When the dough is firm, roal it out and cover a spring form with about 3/4the of the dough. Pre-heat the oven at 175 degrees and bake the crust for about 5-10 minutes. While the crust is baking, bake half the apples in some butter until soft and then add the rest before transfering it to the crust. Cover in the last bit of the dough and bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes
