Upside-down Apple Pie

25 May

Do you have a pie dish? I don’t! Which means I make all my pies ‘upside-down’. If you do have one, feel free to make yours the right way up. I imagine it will still taste as good.

This is a great way to use up any apples that are getting old, or home grown ones that just don’t look appetising enough to bite into.


4 Apples
1 tsp Sugar


Peel, cube and slice the apples. Put them in a pot of boiling water with the sugar for about 10 minutes, until they are soft. Drain of the water completely.

Split the pastry into 2, and roll out both of them. Lay one piece on a greased oven tray, pile the apple in the middle, and then place the second piece on top. Roll up the edges of the pastry, if you’ve made your layers the right side this should seal the pie up.

Poke a few holes in the top with a fork, and bake at 180ºC for about 20 minutes. Leave to cool for a few minutes, and then serve with cream.
