The ‘Life Changing’ Cinnamon Apple Pie

A perfect dairy-free dessert or afternoon tea cake.

This cinnamon and apple pie is an iconic Monday Morning Cooking Club recipe from the kitchen of Maxine Pacanowski in Sydney, Australia. It is in our first book, Monday Morning Cooking Club – the food, the stories, the sisterhood.

Since Chrissie Swan called it a ‘life changing apple pie’ on national television and Nigella Lawson wrote about it and baked her own version, it has been one of the most popular recipes in our collection. It is quick and easy to make, dairy free and just simply DELICIOUS.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base and side of a 26 cm springform cake tin.
  2. Layer the apple slices in the prepared tin so they come about two-thirds of the way up the side. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the apples.
  3. Make a batter by beating the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the oil and vanilla and beat well, then stir in the flour. Spoon the batter on top of the cinnamon-covered apples and sprinkle with extra cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cake. Cool in the tin. Serve warm with cream or ice cream.
  5. Note: To make cinnamon sugar to keep in your pantry, mix 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon with 1 cup caster (superfine) sugar

    Can’t wait to make this for the holiday. Do you think the gluten free one to one flour would work and taste the same? Thanks

      Hi Sharryn, yes it works very well with GF flour.
