Hello!!! J first of all, sorry for the delay. I have been trying to do the prefect base for this lactose free apple pie. I experimented with it and finally found the perfect option. At the beginning the base started to break and was impossible to manipulate but at the end, after making some changes and trying different options, I found the solution! :D
- 300g of flour
- 130g of free lactose vegetable butter (I use: Flora)
- 1 tea spoon of baking powder (I use: Royal)
- 1 tea spoon of salt
- 1 tea spoon of sugar
- 70g of water
- Cake mold
- Cling film
- 3 reinette apples
- 4 table spoons of apricot jam
- 2 table spoon of sugar
- 1 glass of water
1st In a bowl add flour + vegetable butter + baking powder + salt + sugar and mix it together, then add water and mix it again.
Transfer it to the table and knead it for 15 seconds, no more!
Make a ball and cover it with cling film. Store it in the fridge for 45-60 minutes.
2nd Now take the base out of the fridge and place cling film over the table. Put the base on it and put another film on top (we do this to avoid the base sticking to the table or to the rolling pin). Take the rolling pin and roll it over the base until it is flat and the same size as the cake mold.
Spread the vegetable butter inside the cake mold and place the base in it. To transfer the base: we take out the plastic that is on top, but we leave the one in the bottom. Roll the base around the rolling pin and unravel the base into the cake mold Finally, we can take out the plastic which should now be on the top. (we do this to avoid the base from sticking to itself or breaking in pieces).
Take out any leftovers of the base. Take a fork and make small holes in the base.
Place it in the oven for 10 minutes at 170º C.
1st Cut the apples in 4 pieces, take out the core and slice the apples in thin layers.
Once the base is out of the oven, arrange the apple layers on it and place the base once more in the oven for 20 minutes at 150º C.
2nd Now is time for the sauce. Place water + sugar into a pot and stir on a low fire until the sugar has dissolved. Add the apricot jam and increase the fire to the maximum setting. When it starts to boil, we stir it for about 10 minutes (This way we are reducing the sauce to make it thicker).
Place the pot on to the side and let it cool a bit. Then we spread the sauce on top of the apple pie.
Leave the cake to cool and it´s ready to enjoy!!
I hope you like it!!!
