Apple pie from the Airfryer
Apple pie from the airfryer
As I write this, I have no idea what the weather will be like today. But something that can be eaten on any day, whether it is a radiant warm or a cold and gray day, is apple pie. Even though an old-fashioned apple pie secretly always tastes just that little bit better on a rainy afternoon …
Anyway, time to bake! This time I made the apple pie in the Philips Airfryer XXL, with the baking accessory. I think that’s a huge effort, because it literally saves half the time! Baking in the Airfryer XXL ensures that baking times are often reduced by half – very handy if you have less time. This spicy and fragrant apple pie is ready in no time. Moreover, it consumes considerably less power; you don’t have to heat up an entire oven to 180˚C.
Tip: if you don’t have the baking accessory, you can also use a small 20 cm springform pan and place it in the Airfryer.
Making the apple pie from the Airfryer
To make the Airfryer apple pie, we first start with the dough. I immediately divide this into two parts and let it rest for about half an hour in the refrigerator or in the freezer (the latter is a bit faster, for the impatient among us…).
While the dough is resting, you can make the filling. Which apples you use for this is a personal choice. I like fresh tart apples for an apple pie. By the way, pay attention to the amount of sugar, because a sweet apple naturally needs less sugar than a very sour apple. If necessary, taste how much is desirable. In this case, I added 50 grams of sugar. That was enough for the apples I had, but something more is possible.
Note: grease your springform pan or baking pan well with butter and/or cover it with baking paper.
Then remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out both parts into a piece. You use one piece of dough to cover the bottom and sides. You use the second piece for the top. You can place the cloth on top in one go or you can make a nice old-fashioned checkered pattern.
Also, a good tip to prevent a wet bottom with the apple pie from the Airfryer: use some raisins or breadcrumbs on the bottom to absorb any moisture from the apples. Below I explain this in detail.
Apple pie from the Airfryer Recipe
PREPARATION TIME: 45 min CALORIES: 504 kcal
- Airfryer XXL
- Baking accessory or a 20 cm diameter springform pan
- 350 gr flour
- 125 gr butter at room temperature
- 250 gr sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg yolk for coating
- 4-5 large apples peeled and chopped
- 50 gr sugar
- 1 tbsp biscuit spices
- 1 lemon zest
- First make the dough by mixing the flour, butter, sugar, baking powder, salt and eggs into a cohesive dough. I often do this quickly in the food processor.
- Make a ball of the dough. Divide this into two parts. Make two flat slices of this. Cover it with plastic foil and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- For the filling, mix the apple pieces with the sugar, lemon zest and biscuit herbs and set aside.
- Grease your baking pan well with some butter
- Remove the two parts of dough from the refrigerator and roll them out into a thin sheet. Place one of the pieces in the tin and press all the edges well. Seal any holes and pour your apple mixture on top.
- In general, quite a lot of moisture comes out of the apple. You can compensate for this by either adding raisins or sprinkling some breadcrumbs on the bottom before adding the apples.
- Make strips of dough from the second piece of dough and cover the top with this.
- Brush the dough on top with the beaten egg yolk and bake the apple pie in the Airfryer at 160˚C for 30 minutes.
