Spiced apple pie

  • 2 cups gluten-free plain flour
  • 2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 200 g chilled unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 6 granny smith apples
  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 2 tbsp demerara sugar
  • vanilla ice-cream, to serve


Spiced apple pie

  1. Sift flour and gum into a large bowl. Stir in half the sugar. Rub in butter to make coarse crumbs. Add egg yolk and 2-3 tablespoons iced water, stirring to moisten lightly. Gather dough into a ball. Shape into a disc. Cover with plastic food wrap: chill 20 minutes.
  2. Roll out half the pastry to line a 21 cm (base measurement) 5-cup pie dish. Chill until required.
  3. Peel, quarter and core apples: slice and place in a large bowl. Add sultanas, remaining caster sugar and mixed spice. Toss; stand for 10 minutes, then drain off any liquid.
  4. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan forced. Spoon apples into pastry. Roll remaining pastry to a 25cm round. Cut into 1.5cm-wide strips. Arrange strips over filling to create a lattice pattern: pressends to pastry edge and trim. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with demerara sugar. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly and golden. Serve with ice-cream.
