Apple Pie (Eggless and Vegan)



For pie crust:

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup plain flour/maida

1/4 cup oil

Water as required

1/2 tsp salt

For the filling:

2 medium sized apples, peeled and sliced

1/4 tsp cinnamon powder

2 tbsp wheat flour

3 tbsp regular sugar/brown sugar

A few drops of oil to top the filling


1. Firstly, take a bowl and sieve wheat flour, plain flour and salt. Mix them well. Now, add oil and with the help of your fingers, mix the oil in the flour evenly to get a breadcrumb texture. The whole mixture should look like breadcrumbs as this would result in a giving a flaky texture to the crust. 

2. Next, add water as required and bind the whole mixture together. Do not knead to a proper dough. Just gather everything together to form a dough. Allow it to rest for 5-10 mins.

3. Now, in another bowl, take the peeled and sliced apples. To it mix the cinnamon powder, wheat flour and sugar. The filling is ready. 

4. Pre-heat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10-15 mins. Grease your pie pan with some oil. 

5. Next, divide the dough into two equal parts depending on the size of your pie pan. Roll the divided dough parts on a dusted work surface. Place one of the rolled dough gently on the greased pan and press them towards the bottom and the edges. 

6. Further arrange the apple pie filling evenly on the bottom pie crust. Top the apple slices with some drops of oil. 

7. Now, cover the pan with another rolled dough and fold the edges of the top crust over and under the bottom edges. Cut through the top pie crust with a fork or a knife from the top so as to allow the steam to pass while baking. 

8. Brush the top pie crust with soy milk or regular cow milk (if not vegan) and sprinkle some cinnamon powder and sugar on top. Further bake the apple pie in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 50-60 mins or until the crust turns golden and crisp. 

9. Finally, serve apple pie (eggless and vegan) warm or at room temperature. You can also refrigerate the apple pie in an airtight container and have them later.
