Vintage English Apple Pie

The British love apples and perfectly master the skill of making apple pies. When an Englishman wants to say that something is typically British, he says “as English as apple pie” (“English, like apple pie”).
Crunchy dough, sour apples, custard or whipped cream are what make up the traditional English pie. It is served hot, it smells sweet, the filling flows out of the cut lobule, the cream melts into a gravy.
If the pies had organized competitions among themselves, then this English comrade would simply have no competitors.
Apple pie is not difficult to make. Once you have mastered the basics, you can start experimenting a little with the recipe. For example, why not add a few grated apples to the dough itself? Or, perhaps, to change the amount of spices, in order to re-arrange the taste accents. You can add nuts to the stuffing, you can also send the berries there or – how do you like the idea – try to mix the stuffing with grated cheese?
Do not be afraid to dream and as a reward for this you will get the opportunity every time to have a slightly different cake! And here is a classic recipe that was provided by the British brand WALMER.
For the test:
350 g flour
150 g of softened butter
1 tablespoon sugar
a pinch of salt
some cold water
For filling:
700 g sour apples
1/2 juice of lemon
75 g white raisins
75 g cane sugar
a pinch of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
zest of 1 lemon and 1 orange
1 tablespoon flour
Peel the apples and cut into large slices. Sprinkle with a small amount of lemon juice so that they do not darken.
Heat the oven to 200 ° C.
Sift flour and mix with salt. Add the butter and knead-mix until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Add sugar.
Sprinkle the mixture with cold water and knead again. Separate 2/3 of the dough and spread it out with your hands at the bottom of your baking dish.
Place half the apples on top of the dough. Mix raisins with spices and sprinkle over apples. Add the remaining half of the apples.
Roll out the last third of the test. Cover it with a pie and pinch the edges. Make cuts on the dough (this is important! This allows you to leave a couple while the cake is baking and ensures that your dough is baked and crumbly).
Place the cake in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Then lower the oven temperature to 190 ° C and bake another 20-25 minutes. Your cake is ready when it turns golden brown.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with sugar. Serve with whipped cream.
