There's nothing like....Warm Apple Pie!

I can't stand cooked apples, I much rather bite into a lovely green crunchy apple. But I do love this recipe for warm apple pie with custard. I make it all the time. The recipe was passed down from my mother in law and I have made it for the last year with with nothing but compliments from people. It's one of those recipes that you can whip up when you get that dreaded phone call that visitors are coming over. (See photo of apple pie from my last function) So here it is...yummy warm apple pie!


250 g butter
1 pkt slithered almonds
3 cups self-raising flour
1 large tin apples
1 cup sugar
1 T cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
2. In a bowl sift flour, add sugar and softened butter. Mix with a wooden spoon and then with your hands to combine. The consistency of the mixture should be soft and combined. You might need to add more butter if it's not.
3. In a spring form tin, using only 3/4 of the pastry mixture, press onto base and sides...make sure mixture is evenly spread.
4. Pour in apples and sprinkle with cinnamon.
5. With he remaining 1/4 mixture, tear into 'blobs' and place on top of apple mixture. Alternatively you can grate the mixture on top, but the blobs work out well as they spread like biscuit mixture when cooked. Topped with 1 packed of slithered almonds.
6. Cook in oven for 45 minutes.
7. Allow to cool and remove from baking tin. Cute and serve with custard and cream!
