Covered Apple Pie

Apple Pie

I am convinced that your guests will be delighted with this apple pie. A bit of a hassle to bake, but worth it.



  • 100 g brown sugar (used in two 50 g portions)
  • 1.5 kg of peeled (and grated or chopped) apples
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of clove powder
  • 3 tablespoons of rum (54% or 1 tablespoon of straw rum)
  • 100 g raisins
  • 40 g corn starch (or potato starch)
  • 50 g of water

Kneading dough

  • 350 grams of 405 flour
  • 150 g margarine
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 100 g fine sugar
  • 1 packet of vanillin sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white (please separate the yolks to coat the cake)


  1. Mix 50 g of brown sugar, vanilla sugar, salt, clove powder and cinnamon together.
  2. Mix the apple pieces and optional ingredients together and leave to work for 1 hour.
  3. Braise the whole thing with a little water in a saucepan for about 1 hour on a small fire.
  4. At the same time as the apples are cooked, the dough is worked on. Put margarine at room temperature with eggs in the mixing bowl and slowly knead.
  5. When the dough is smooth, wrap it in cling film and leave in the refrigerator for an hour.
  6. Remove the stewed apple pieces from the stove. Mix the cornstarch with the water and the remaining brown sugar and add to the saucepan and mix very well.
  7. The whole thing must lie at least an hour before use.
  8. Remove the batter from the refrigerator. Spread 2/3 of the dough evenly in a 26 cm springform pan.
  9. Put the mold back in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  10. Heat open to 175 degrees Celsius.
  11. Bake dough for 13 minutes.
  12. Take out of the oven and let cool for 15 minutes.
  13. Add the filling.
  14. Roll out 1/3 of the dough and pour over the cake.
  15. Mix the egg yolks with a little water and sugar and brush the cake.
  16. Bake for 45 minutes.

I usually serve with a little vanilla sauce.
