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.

Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.

Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.

And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.

Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.

I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.

We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.

(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
