Apple Pie from Scratch (Eggless & Vegan)

Jump to RecipeVideo

Apple pie is an absolute favorite baked dessert at home. On some occasions I make this apple pie and it really makes for a good sweet breakfast or evening dessert.

This is also a vegan recipe for making apple pie. The pie crust is made both with whole wheat flour and all purpose flour in 2:1 ratio respectively.

I have shown step by step pics to make this easy apple pie at home. Even without using butter or cold water, the crust was crisp and flaky.

Few more apple based desserts you can make are:

You can cover the top of the apple pie completely or make a lattice pie crust. Apple pie is best had warm plain or with some glazed syrup or even whipped cream. You can even refrigerate the apple pie and have it later.

How to make Apple Pie

3. With your fingers tips rub the oil in the flour. Keep on doing this and you will start to get a breadcrumb like texture. Continue to do this till the whole mixture looks like breadcrumbs. this step should be done properly as this results in giving a flaky texture to the crust.

10. Cover the pan with another rolled pie crust and fold the edges of the top crust over and under the bottom edges. You can also cut strips from the rolled dough and create a lattice pie crust. Cut through the top pie crust with a fork or knife from top so as to allow steam to pass whilst baking. Brush with soy milk or any milk and sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon powder on top.

11. Bake the apple pies in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees C for 50-60 mins or till the crust has become golden and crisp. It took exact one hour in my oven. Since oven temperatures vary, it can take less or more time in your oven. Serve the apple pie warm or at room temperature plain or with some whipped cream.
