Homemade Apple Pie


  • 1kg Bramley apples
  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp flour

    For the pastry
  • 225g butter, room temperature
  • 50g golden caster sugar, plus extra
  • 2 eggs
  • 350g plain flour, preferably organic softly whipped cream, to serve


  1. Place paper towels on a large baking sheet. Slice the apples (5mm thick), arrange them evenly on the sheet, and cover with more paper towels. Set aside while you make and chill the pastry.
  2. For the pastry, mix butter and sugar. Add a whole egg and a yolk, beat briefly. Stir in flour gradually until it starts to clump. Form a dough ball, wrap in cling film, and chill for 45 mins. Combine 140g sugar, cinnamon, and flour in a large bowl for the filling.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5. Beat the egg white. Roll out two-thirds of the pastry to line a 20-22cm, 4cm deep pie tin, leaving an overhang. Pat the apples dry, toss with the cinnamon-sugar mix, and fill the tin. Roll the remaining pastry third to a 28cm circle, seal the pie, and cut steam vents. (You can freeze it at this point.) Brush with egg white, sprinkle caster sugar, and bake for 40-45 mins until golden. Let sit for 5-10 mins, sprinkle with more sugar, and serve warm with whipped cream.
