Swedish Apple Pie
Do you need a quick dessert that also delicious and quite healthy? (175 calories and 7 grams of fat per slice!) Then Swedish Apple Pie to the rescue. Swedish Apple Pie does not have a crust. The apples are suspended in a spicy dough, and thus resembles more of a cake than a pie. But you do bake it in a pie plate, and cut it into wedges, so close enough. And did I mention it's quick? Probably 40 minutes, including baking time, and you're done!
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, whole wheat flour,
baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Then in a small bowl, whisk together the egg and the vanilla.
Pour the egg into the flour mixture
and stir well with a wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are all moistened. The dough will be really stiff, and you'll wonder how this will ever work out. It will!
Now fold in the chopped apples.
The apples will start to give off some of their juices and help thin out the batter a bit. Stir it up til all the apples are coated.
Pour the batter into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Dust with powdered sugar,
and serve warm (it's even nicer with vanilla bean ice cream!).
