Granny’s Apple Pie with Wholemeal Spelt Pastry

Granny's Apple Pie

A simple but super tasty apple pie made with delicious flakey, buttery wholemeal spelt pastry. Granny’s apple pie doesn’t have to be made with a food processor, but as a bonus, there’s a review of one in this post.

There’s something so nostalgic but also comforting about apple pie. It takes me straight back to my Granny’s cooking of yesteryear. 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 wholemeal spelt 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.

Granny's Apple Pie with Wholemeal Spelt Pastry

A simple but super tasty apple pie made with delicious flakey, buttery wholemeal spelt pastry.
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time50 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: British
Keyword: apples, pie, traditional, wholemeal flour, wholemeal spelt flour
Servings: 6 people
Calories: 413kcal


  • 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


  • 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.
  • Halve the dough and roll out to about 4mm thick.
  • Line the bottom of a 22 cm pie dish and trim the edges to fit.
  • Whisk the cinnamon into the sugar or  or place in a jar and give a good shake.
  • 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.
  • Roll out the remaining pastry to about 4mm thick and cover the top of the pie.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the top and slash the pastry in order for some of the steam to escape.
  • 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.
  • Serve hot or cold with clotted cream or custard.


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

    If you have ever seen me make pastry by hand
    Its terribly messy and slow

    4th October 2017 at 9:08 pm

    We have an apple tree groaning with the weight of apples so I’d make some apple coleslaw and the food processor would save me chopping by hand.We also have a lot of pears so I could use it to make apple and pear crumble.

  22. Kayleigh Watkins

    4th October 2017 at 9:11 pm

    This would be perfect to make homemade dinners for my 7 month old daughter, I’m always buying mini pasties so I’d love to try to make some at home too xXx

    I love making chutney but preparing the fruits and onions by hand takes ages – this would speed things up so much!

  32. Angela / Only Crumbs Remain

    5th October 2017 at 9:53 am

    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!

  33. Judith Allen

    5th October 2017 at 10:00 am

    We would try making pesto. Did you read the news yesterday about how ready made pesto is higher in salt now than a few years ago? Shocked me into thinking we really must make our own. I mean, I like salt, but there’s a limit!

    • Choclette

      8th October 2017 at 8:56 pm

      Yes I heard that Judith. I think that’s true of most ready made items. Homemade is generally best, though not always convenient or even possible.

  34. Peter Gill

    5th October 2017 at 10:07 am

    Interesting recipe. The food processor would be great for making the pastry.

  35. Clare B

    I’d use it to make roasted butternut squash and red pepper soup. I made some earlier this week and used a hand blender to blend and ended up with soup splashes everywhere to clear up!

  40. Corina

    5th October 2017 at 12:09 pm

    My mum used to make wholemeal pastry and I grew up on it so I definitely prefer it to plain white pastry. I will have to get some spelt flour to try your recipe and try adding a little yoghurt as it can be difficult to work with and I often find my finished bakes look a little more ‘rustic’ than I’d like! Thanks so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice.

    • Choclette

      8th October 2017 at 8:53 pm

      Snap. I grew up on wholemeal pastry too and I love the texture and flavour of it, but until I discovered the yoghurt trick I used to hate making it.

  41. Lindsey Stuart

    Lovely pie! I have never made wholemeal pastry before as thought it might be a bit tricky to handle. It’s great to know it’s not really the case (will be trying the yoghurt for binding). I tend to use food processor for my pastry all the time as it’s so much quicker plus my hands are too hot to handle the pastry too much lol. VonShef looks like a great processor and storage drawer is a fantastic idea! x

    • Choclette

      8th October 2017 at 8:50 pm

      Thanks Jo. Pastry used to be my nemesis until I discovered the yoghurt trick. I’ve only ever made wholemeal pastry though – or sometimes half and half.

      Wholemeal all the way Monika. Give it a try. All that bran really helps in bakes to mitigate against ingredients that might not be quite so good 😉

    I would love it because I cook a lot of casseroles and soups and this is far more powerful than my current little blender which struggles (it is about 8 years old now I guess a trip to the great blender in the sky approaches)

  103. Helen

    9th October 2017 at 7:36 pm

    oh I do love an apple pie, and I’m loving how neatly you’ve laid your apples! I haven’t made an apple pie this apple season yet, and we have so many apples!

    I’ve only got a mini-blender which is too small when I want to do breadcrumbs for making breaded chicken or fish. I have to part at a time, tip it out and start again, so this would be so much more convenient

  121. Mary H

    17th October 2017 at 8:08 am

    This food processer would be so handy. I would whip up everything from curry pastes to soups, hummus to chopping lots of veg. They’re also great for combining butter and flour for pastry.

  122. Lynsey Buchanan

    I know it’s a simple recipe, but the thing I most want to make is humus. I’ve never used a food processor before, so I would love to be able to do some of the simple things, that others seem to do without thinking about it 🙂

  127. Caroline H

    19th October 2017 at 10:12 pm

  130. Edward Guerreiro

    19th October 2017 at 11:40 pm

    There are a lot of different bread recipes I have collected over the years that I would love to try, such as Portuguese rolls. I am always put off by the kneading process. I always struggle with all aspects of it, like the mess is creates and simply the amount of effort it takes. So, if the dough blade works as advertised, I would be willing to make bread much more often.

    I’ve been using my mum’s food processor to make my Thai Green Curry Paste. It’s a bit of a palaver jumping into the car and driving over to hers for that reason (although always nice to catch up over a cup of coffee). So this would be very useful and time saving too

  134. Heather Haigh

    It would make making breadcrumbs so much easier – I make my own for coating fish and chicken as I need gluten free ones. Also nut-roast would be much easier.

  135. Anna

    20th October 2017 at 7:57 am

    Inspired by my eldest son I have, over the past year become a vegan and I am finding vegan cookery quite time consuming. A food processor would speed up the preparation of salads with a lot of grated veg and bean burgers or bean and walnut spreads.

  136. Emily Henley

    20th October 2017 at 8:20 am

    It’s pastry for me. I haven’t got the patience to do it and a food processor would save time!

    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?!

    Energy Balls! Especially cocoa/mint or date/nut. I pay ~£2 a pop for them on the go, so to be able to make them at home instead would be amazing!

      I think you definitely need to start making them at home. Imagine what you’ll be able to buy with the money saved 🙂

  220. Debbie Nichols

    2nd November 2017 at 11:43 am

    It is coming up to soup, soup and more soup weather (I love soup). One of these would be ideal for getting the smoothness I require of my veggie soups. Or the crumbles for a nice warm winter berry crumble.

    I would mainly use this to make smooties, try and loose some weight

  225. Jodie A Green

    2nd November 2017 at 2:14 pm

    i think i would make a crumble, Apples are a big favourite for my kids so probably an apple crumble and a food processor would certainly speed up the process and save me from ‘mum is it done yet’

  229. Linda Spencer

    2nd November 2017 at 4:40 pm

    This is boring but true – I’d be dying to make home made cheese and onion pie. Onions by hand have a really bad effect on me. My gran used to make me one, it was so gorgeous but nobody since. I’ve tried to persuade my sis who is a MUCH better cook than me to do it but she’s having none!

  231. Anthea Holloway

    2nd November 2017 at 6:21 pm

    I am dying to make my Christmas puddings and Christmas cake and a food processor would be so useful for the breadcrumbs, chopping nuts and generally mixing it all together.

    I thought I’d already commented on this! I love old-fashioned apple pie, and yours looks fab, especially with the spelt pastry. I bet it’s so filling too.

    This would be useful for all sorts of things. Homemade soup has to be my favourite and this would be ideal for chopping all those onions and tough ingredients like butternut squash.

    I would use it to make the pastry for my mince pies, so much easier than doing it by hand.

    Anything from Jamie’s 15 or 30 minute meals – without a food processor they currently take me about an hour and a half 😀

    I would love to make some pastry and scones with the food processor . The family love apple and pear pie and my chicken and leek in white sauce pie. I could make them a lot quicker with this processor and batch make them for the freezer

    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.

    A Victoria Sponge – I hope this would help make it lighter than air (plus I like fresh cream in the middle…)

    Lemon meringue pie. I love it and have made it before but it can be a bit of a faff.

  350. Gwyn Sharps

    4th November 2017 at 3:33 pm

    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.

  351. Noreen

    4th November 2017 at 3:36 pm

    I would love to make my favourite Carrot Cake. The processor would be so useful for shredding and blending all the lovely ingredients!

  354. Tracey Belcher

    4th November 2017 at 4:05 pm

    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

  355. Derek Wilson

    4th November 2017 at 4:14 pm

    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!

    I would love to be have a food processor in time for Christmas. I have a stack of recipes that I would love to try ranging from cakes to sauces and a processor would be a great help.


    4th November 2017 at 5:41 pm

    I would love this super food processor to great pasty and cakes. I have arthritis in my hands and it would make much better mixes than I can do.

    I’d use it to grate the mouli when my husband makes stuffed parathas. Grating them by hand is a real chore and I invariably grate my knuckles

    some tomato and onion bread twists asI hate mixing the bread mix by hand and then I’d make home made potatoe and leek soup too

  376. Tamsin Dean

    I love to make sticky toffee pudding, especially this time of year, however my food processor broke a few months ago and I have a 3 month old, it’s a bit too much extra work without my food processor so I haven’t made any for quite some time x

  383. Anne Woodthorpe
