Granny’s Apple Pie with Wholemeal Spelt and a Food Processor Giveaway

Granny's Apple Pie

Calling this Granny’s apple pie is perhaps a bit far fetched. My Grandmother made the best pastry ever and wonderful apple pies to boot, but I very much doubt she’d have even heard of spelt and she’d never have used wholemeal flour. She also made her pastry by hand. This pastry was made using my new VonShef 1000W food processor. Read on to find out how to enter the giveaway for a chance of winning one for yourself.

Wholemeal Spelt Pastry

Normally I would make my pastry by hand, just like my granny, but I thought I’d give it a try in the VonShef as I wanted to put it through its paces. I can confidently report that it’s a lot easier and faster using the food processor method, though there is a bit more washing up to do. All I had to do was throw the ingredients into the bowl of the food processor and press a button. Well that maybe over simplifying it slightly, but not by much. I added the flour, butter, salt and nutmeg first and blitzed for a few seconds. Then I added the yoghurt and whizzed for a few more seconds until the mixture gathered itself into a dough.

VonShef Food Processor

If you’re wandering about the yoghurt, I generally use it to bind my wholemeal dough, which is otherwise tricky to handle. It helps to make a flaky and very tasty pastry turning Granny’s apple pie into even more of a treat. I prefer wholemeal pastry as it’s not only much healthier but has a nutty quality to it which enhances the flavour.

Granny's Apple Pie

Coincidentally, it was pastry week on The Great British Bake Off on Tuesday. Some of the pies looked and sounded fantastic. I feel I now need to make a savoury pie and have a go at pasteis de nata, otherwise known as Portuguese custard tarts. However, I’ve noticed no-one on #GBBO is ever brave enough to make wholemeal pastry.

Granny’s Apple Pie

Once you’ve made the pastry, all the work for Granny’s apple pie is almost done. This is a super simple recipe which requires no pre-cooking of the apples. Simply slice them up and add a bit of sugar. The only fiddly bit is cutting out pastry decorations. The bit of pastry you can see looking lost on the top was my inept attempt at a leaf. I must try harder.

Granny's Apple Pie

Apple season is now in full swing. I’m finding apples everywhere I go. Colleagues are bringing them into work, I see help yourself boxes of them sitting on people’s doorsteps and best of all I have the next door neighbour’s apples falling into my new garden. I do love autumn. The pastry was beautifully flaky and crisp on the bottom. No soggy bottoms for me. Now that Mary Berry is no longer part of #GBBO, maybe that’s now a thing of the past anyway. The pie is wonderful eaten hot straight from the oven, with or without clotted cream or custard. But it’s almost as good eaten cold the next day.

VonShef 1000W Food Processor

My aunt recently told me she’d been having problems finding a food processor that had stainless steel attachments rather than plastic. I’m pleased to report that the six chopping, shredding, slicing and grating blades that come with the VonShef 1000W Food Processor are all made of stainless steel. The only plastic attachment is the dough blade which I used to make Granny’s apple pie. The bowl is bigger than my last food processor (3.5 litre capacity), but it’s a lot more compact than you might think and doesn’t take up much more space. It’s taller than it is wider, but still sits comfortably on the workbench and under the kitchen cabinets.

VonShef Food Processor

It does everything you’d expect a good food processor to do and comes with a 1.8 litre capacity blender jug. Smoothies are very much an option as are soups, dips, sauces, coleslaw and any number of other delights – including pastry of course. It has a two speed control for versatility plus the ever useful pulse function.

My absolute favourite feature is the handy drawer at the bottom which holds the attachments. No longer do I need to hunt around in the back of the cupboard every time I need to change the grater to a slicer or chopper. They all fit snugly into the drawer and will never be lost again. The 1000W motor is powerful so it has an in-built thermal cut-out device in case the food processor begins to overheat.

You can buy the VonShef 1000W Food Processor online via Domu for £59.99.

A simple but super tasty apple pie made with delicious flakey, buttery wholemeal spelt pastry.
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: British
Serves: 6
Author: Choclette @ Tin and Thyme
Ingredients
  • 250 g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 150 g unsalted butter
  • pinch sea salt
  • grating of nutmeg I used 3 drops of spice drops
  • 3 tbsp natural yoghurt
  • 3 large cooking apples or 4-6 windfalls - peeled cored, quartered and sliced
  • 50 g golden granulated sugar I used vanilla sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Insert the dough blade into the bowl of the food processor. Add the flour, butter, salt and nutmeg and pulse until the mixture has formed something resembling rough breadcrumbs. Add the yoghurt and switch to speed 1 until the mixture has formed a dough - about 20 seconds.
  2. Halve the dough and roll out to about 4mm thick.
  3. Line the bottom of a 22 cm pie dish and trim the edges to fit.

  4. Whisk the cinnamon into the sugar or  or place in a jar and give a good shake.
  5. Layer in the apples and all but 1 tbsp of the sugar. It's best to mound them up higher than the dish as they will sink when cooking.
  6. Roll out the remaining pastry to about 4mm thick and cover the top of the pie.
  7. Trim the edges and crimp the sides or use a fork to press the pastry together. You can also use some of the pastry scraps to create some decorations to go on top.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the top and slash the pastry in order for some of the steam to escape.
  9. Bake in the middle of a preheated oven at 200℃ for about 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the apples are soft.
  10. Serve hot or cold with clotted cream or custard.
Recipe Notes

Any remaining pastry will keep in the fridge for a couple of days or it can be frozen.

    To be honest I’ve never used a food processor and have always been intregued to know if pastry made in a food processor is as good as that made by hand. Looking at the pastry you’ve made for your apple pie it certainly looks to be as good. Love the idea of using yogurt in the pastry too – sound gorgeous!

    We love homemade pasties with all sorts of savoury and sweet flavours. The kids are always asking for them but they take me forever to make. I’ve used ready made pastry a couple of times when I’ve been really busy but they can always tell and they’re none too happy about it! This would speed up the pastry making part no end and I could even use it to chop up the fillings. Then the only time consuming bit will be rolling it out. Do you think they might invent a Vonshef with a rolling pin attachment too?!

    Both my children love homemade over shop bought and their favourite is my homemade hummus especially when served in wraps with chilli bean paste (it’s a bit like refried beans) and salad. The hummus and bean paste is all prepared with a food processor but sadly I’m struggling to make it as my current one went up in smoke last month.

    I’m vegan so lots of my recipes require a processor like this. I would make vegan blueberry cheesecake and I make the base with dates and almonds which I need to blend. I make the ‘cheese’ with blended cashews and soya milk.

    It is that time of year when casseroles and stews are so warming so I would start with a bulk load for a casserole and then lots of homemade pies will be on the list

    Smoothies. I buy lots of frozen fruit (like summer berries) for convenience, so a food processor would be ideal for making healthy drinks.

    I love your apple pie recipe, it is my next to do bake! When I don’t have apples I sometimes use courgettes and make a fake apple pie, it’s amazing but you can hardly taste the difference!
