A different apple pie

One day I noticed I have manna in my kitchen cupboard and then I remembered an apple pie my Lithuanian friend used to bake then and then. Now she lives in Oslo and we do not meet so often. So I have bought some apples and baked it thinking of her.

What's so different about this apple pie? Yeh, it's manna. And dry paste. No eggs, no milk, no yeast.
You'll need only flour, sugar and manna to make the dry paste. Got intressted?

Manna apple pie

200 ml flour (fullcorn flour suits as well)
200 ml manna
100 ml sugar (both regular sugar and brown sugar suits well)
200 g butter
5-6 juicy apples
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of sugar

pinch of vanilla sugar
almons flakes or pouder
orange peel

Blend together flour, manna and sugar. That is the dry paste.
Peel the apples, cut them in small slices, sift with cinnamon and sugar. You also can add vanilla sugar, almond flakes/powder to taste and spice up with orange peel.
Grease a glass baking form and spread 1/3 of the dry paste. Sprinkle 1/3 of melted butter on the dry paste. Top with 1/3 of the apple slices. Repeat the layering (the dry paste, butter, apple slices) two times more.
Cover the baking form with foil and bake in the middle of the oven at 200º C for 60 min.


  1. Nice to hear somebody liked it! As I just got email from TasteSpotting that they are not going to publish this one :(

  2. Vegetarian one! Might even be vegan, if it is possible to change butter into smth else...

  3. Yes, you can change butter to oil :).
