Nutty apple pie

It's apple season and perfect time to enjoy some lovely apples. I was explicitly looking for a nutty apple pie recipe and found this one on a website of a Finnish magazine. I followed it pretty closely, but here is the translation. It was nice and moist and full of apples. 

For the crust:

1 dl oat flakes
2 dl wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 dl sugar
½ dl hazelnut crush
1 tsp vanilla sugar
75 g margarine
2 eggs
1 ½ dl Greek yogurt

For the filling:

4 British pink apples
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 ½ tbsp hazelnut crush


Grease a pie tin (about 25 cm diameter).

Melt the margarine.

Mix the dry ingredients for the crust and add the other ingredients into the mix and make a smooth dough.

Spread the dough into the pie tin.

Wash the apples and cut them into thin slices or wedges. Place them onto the dough.

Melt the butter and add the sugar and cinnamon to it. Pour the mix onto the apples

Sprinkle the hazelnut crush on the top.

Bake at 200C for about 40 minutes.

  1. And obviously I also added some almond flakes on the top, which I forgot to mention in the ingredients. That was my own addition. Sorry about that.

    1. :) it does look delicious. I am planning on making a recipe that I bookmarked with apples from Johanna's blog, but this is close too.

    2. I so rarely bake cakes and sweet pies, but this one was a real treat and I shall make it soon again. Super easy as well.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
