To celebrate a new lockdown season, I wanted to cook an apple pie like my mum used to make and I think I found a recipe that looks like that.


1- 150g of biscuits smashed (my tin was a bit bigger than the video)

2- 70g melted butter

3- 8 apples, peeled and core removed – 6 for the sauce and 2 for decoration

4- 1 glass of milk (around 250ml)

5- 1 glass of plain flour (same glass as above)

6- 1/2 glass of suggar (same glass as above)

7- a pintch of cinnamon

8- Some tbsp of marmalade (or maple syrup as I ran out)


1- Use a bit of butter to cover the bottom of your tin. Mix your crashed biscuits with the butter and fill the bottom of the tin. Be sure it looks like a firm surface. Put the tin in the fridge to cool down.

2- Pre-heat oven at 180C

3- In a blender, put the 6 chopped apples, milk, flour, sugar and cinnamon. After a couple of minutes, check everything is fully combined and liquid-like.

4- Take the tin from the bridge, and pour the apple mix on the tin. Be sure it is level. Then cut the other two apples in slices and cover the apple mix.

5- Put the cake in the over for around 60 minutes. The top should be brown and if you push a knife in the cake should come out clean.

6- Once the cake is out of the oven. Use the marmalade to bright up the surface of the cake.

7- Let the cake to cool in the fridge (1h) and ready to eat!

I actually liked it and I think it is similar to the one I used to have as a kid. Good memories!
