Servings 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp powdered cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 large apples peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A little milk if necessary


  • Line a 8” pie dish (or cake tin) and butter or grease it well.
  • Put the flour, sugars, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl. Whisk together and then mix in thediced apple and walnuts so they’re well coated with the flour.
  • Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. If the batter feels too dry mix in a little milk, a teaspoon at a time. Don’t add too much milk because this batter should be stiff and not like typical cake batter.
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared tin and level it. Bake at 180C (350F) for about 30 minutes till the pie puffs up slightly and is brown.
