ingredients for apple pandowdy


For pan 24 cm in diameter,

For the sandy paste:

  • 180 g of wheat flour (or 90 g of wheat flour and 90 g of rice or corn flour);
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar;
  • A pinch of salt;
  • 100 g of cold butter;
  • 2-3 tablespoons of ice water.
For the apple filling:
  • 20 g of butter;
  • 0,8-1 kg of apples;
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice;
  • 3-4 tablespoons of sugar;
  • 1 tablespoon of potato starch;
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon;
  • A pinch of cloves.
For the topping:
  • 1-2 tablespoon of maple syrup;
  • 2 tablespoon of white or brown sugar;
  • A pinch of cinnamon.

Sift the flour into a bowl, add sugar and salt. If you’ll take wheat flour in half with corn flour, you’ll get more crumbly sandy paste of a pleasant golden color. Rice flour also gives the pastry greater brittleness, because those kinds of flour are gluten free.
