  • 70 g vegan butter/margarine or coconut oil (soft)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • For the filling:.
  • 600 g apples, sliced (preferably tart varieties like Boskoop or Elstar).
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 130 g date paste
  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Optional toppings:
  • 50 g sliced almonds
  • some date sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 (convection oven). Line a round baking pan (about 24 cm in diameter) with baking paper and lightly grease it.
  2. For the dough: In a bowl, knead the flour, soft vegan butter/margarine or coconut oil, date paste, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Pour the dough into the pan and press down. Pull up the sides a bit.
  4. For the filling: Wash, core and finely slice the apples. Sprinkle with the lemon juice.
  5. Puree date paste, coconut milk, and cinnamon in a blender until creamy. Mix into the apples and spread evenly over the batter.
  6. Optional: Sprinkle flaked almonds, date sugar as well as a few vegan butter flakes on top, or brush with a little oil.
  7. Bake the apple pie in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes, until the batter is golden brown and the apples are soft.
  8. Remove the finished apple cake from the oven and let it cool a bit before you take it out of the pan.
  9. Serve pie as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
