How to make the perfect vegan apple pie
Turn on the oven and set a temperature of 170 degrees, static oven.
Squeeze the lemon and put the juice in a bowl, add the raisins, and stir. Cut the apples into chunks or slices. Some cut them a little larger, they will be placed on top of the cake as a decoration, before cooking. Put in the bowl and season well with the lemon so as not to oxidize the apples. Grate the lemon peel and add it to the apples.
Never peel apples, buy quality, organic apples that are not full of pesticides. If you peel the apples you remove all the flavor. The real secret to making apple pie right is apples. Spend a few euros more, but buy real fruit, you don’t need much else to make a great cake!
Put the flour in a bowl, add the cinnamon, vanilla, and stir. Put in the mixer and start kneading by adding the yogurt first, then the extra virgin olive oil, and finally the apples and all the contents of the bowl. Set aside a few slices of apple to put on top.
Mix baking soda and cream of tartar and dissolve them in a drop of lemon. Stir well, then pour into the dough and knead for a few more minutes. The mixture should be soft and light, so add a drop of almond milk to flavor.
Meanwhile, grease a round cake mold of about 20 centimeters in diameter with oil, then flour it. Pour the apple pie mixture inside and place a few slices of apples on top, making it sink a little.
Cooking the vegan apple pie
Place in the oven and bake at 170 degrees for 40-50 minutes. To understand if the cake is cooked, do the toothpick test: plant a toothpick in it and if it comes out dry then turn off: the cake is cooked. Otherwise, continue for a few more minutes.
When the cake is ready, turn it off and let it cool slowly in the oven, with the door ajar.
Remove the cake from the oven and sprinkle it with icing sugar if you want.
If you want to add an even more aromatic touch, add 50 grams of ground almonds or almond flour.
Which wine to pair with vegan apple pie?
To cut the sweetness of this great classic of home pastry, we choose an intense wine, very sweet, but with a good freshness to cleanse the palate: the Albana Scacco Matto 2008 from Zerbina is ideal. If you want to combine something more structured, we can choose between sweet vermouth, Porto, Madeira and Marsala, Sherry, Brandy, Cognac, and Calvados.
If you want to combine a cocktail, the creaminess of the White Russian is perfect.
