Our Granny Una makes the most delicious apple pie. She has handed the recipe over to the bakers in the family as she is now 94 years old and doesn’t bake that much any more. Her recipe is totally divine and is best when eaten in large quantities with either cream or ice-cream.
Ingredients: Sweet pastry:
- 250 grams of unsalted butter;
- 1 cup castor sugar;
- 2 eggs;
- 3 cups cake flour;
- 1/2 teaspoon salt;
- 2 rounded teaspoons baking power.
- 2 tins pie apples;
- 2 teaspoons mixed spice;
- 2 tablespoons sugar;
- 60 grams melted butter;
- 2 tablespoons brandy OR lemon juice;
- 2 tablespoons cake flour.
