Swedish apple pie is one of our favourite desserts. Not only is it delicious (especially with ice cream – soy, of course) but it is simple to make. The recipe was given to me about ten years ago by a co-worker. She had no idea why it was called *Swedish* apple pie since there is nothing particularly Swedish about it, but the name has stuck. This recipe is a vegan variation – the kind of sugar and flour you use is up to you.
Fill a pie dish 3/4 full (about 6 apples, peeled and sliced)
Sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon mixed with 1 tbsp sugar
Now make the batter:
Melt 3/4 cup butter (Earth Balance butter sticks are easy to measure)
Add: 1 cup sugar, 1 flax egg, and 1 cup flour (To make the flax egg stir together 1 tbsp flax seed and 3 tbsp water. It is best to make the flax egg before you start making the pie as it needs time to thicken.)
Pour the hot batter over the apples and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
While this dessert is lovely by itself, it’s also nice with vanilla ice cream and/or berries.
