Swedish Apple Pie (A Crustless Apple Pie)

Easy crustless apple pie

We finally understand the old saying, “As easy as apple pie.”

We love apple pie but we can’t say we’d ever consider it “easy”. Not that apple pie is really difficult to make but there is pastry to be made and chilled and rolled and crimped. Swedish Apple Pie, however, is different. It really is simple. It’s a bit like a “dump it” cake in that you simply mix the topping ingredients in a pot, pour it over the apples and bake. The result is a rich and delicious pie that is really quite effortless.

Swedish Apple Pie - a rich and delicious pie that is really quite effortless.

We have been baking Swedish Apple Pie with local Cortland apples but any good pie apples will do. Be sure to use a deep-dish pie plate.

Tip: Combine apple varieties in your baking: When cooking with apples, mix and match varieties to get the best combination of flavors and textures. Some apples break down more easily when they cook, like McIntosh, and others hold their structure better (think Cortlands). By combining different varieties in a pie you’ll be able to combine flavours and textures.

    I made this but the topping was not “pourable”. It was kind of thick and didn’t really blend smoothly. When baked it never really crisped up. Any idea where i may have gone wrong? I followed the directions as far as I can tell. Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thanx

    Can you make this without an egg? Or substitute something else for the egg.
    Thanks.

    Made this today. I found there was way too much butter in the pie when done. Very flavourful though. If I prepare it again, I would cut the butter in half. Thanks for the recipe.

    PS – I WONDER IF THERE MIGHT BE FEWER CALORIES IN REGULAR APPLIE PIE WITH CRUST.

    Bridget,
    Can I use a gluten free 1for1 flour blend for this recipe? Think it would work?

    I LOVE your company thank you please make a low carb and or keto chapter with your company and enlist some nut flours and sugar alcohol and substitutions as people are coming to see the bad sad horror that the white sugar systems have overtaken our public health . Whole sugars like the mix of your 2 molasses ‘ males for a molasses with all the nutrients and iron and minerals that are stripped off the first two or three passes. Gross situation but that’s big business for us. We are all guilty of pushing the machines. Thanks for helping to see the benefits of climbing out with good healthy practices in our cooking . Helps with good products like yours. Thank you.

    My molasses is always so thick that I can’t drizzle it. Is there some way to thin it without diluting it?

    I want to try this but need gluten free. Has anyone tried an alternative flour. I am considering coconut flour

    I will be making this. Thank you for the recipe.
    Could substitutions be made.
    Pears, add some cranberries?
    Thank you.
