Imagine indulging in a warm slice of apple pie that practically melts in your mouth, all made with just 5 minutes of work and 25 minutes of baking. Yes, you read that right! In this article, I’ll share with you a simple yet heavenly recipe for crafting the perfect apple pie that will leave you craving for more.


To create this mouthwatering apple pie, you’ll need:

  • 2 cups (300 grams) of flour
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) of milk
  • 5 tablespoons (70 grams) of melted butter
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) of stevia sweetener (or alternatively 1/2 cup (100 grams) of regular sugar)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 apples

For garnishing:

  • 2 teaspoons of stevia sweetener (optional)


Let’s dive into the process of making this delectable dessert:

  1. Prepare the Batter: Begin by breaking the eggs into a bowl, adding the sweetener (stevia or sugar), and whisking them together until well combined.
  2. Mix in the Wet Ingredients: Slowly add the melted butter while continuing to whisk. Then pour in the milk and mix until smooth.
  3. Incorporate Dry Ingredients: Sift the flour into the mixture, along with the yeast. Mix until there are no lumps and the batter is velvety.
  4. Prep the Apples: Peel and core the apples, then slice them thinly. Set aside for a moment.


  1. Layer the Batter: Take a rectangular baking dish with high edges and pour half of the batter onto the bottom.
  2. Add the Apples: Arrange the sliced apples on top of the batter layer.
  3. Finish with Batter: Cover the apples with the remaining batter, ensuring an even layer.
  4. Garnish: Optionally, sprinkle 2 teaspoons of stevia sweetener over the top for an extra touch of sweetness.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Preheat your oven to 180°C and bake the pie for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender.


Once your apple pie is out of the oven, let it cool slightly before slicing. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for a truly indulgent treat.

Tips for Success

  • Choose the Right Apples: Opt for firm, tart apples like Granny Smith or Honeycrisp for the best flavor and texture.
  • Keep the Batter Smooth: Make sure to mix the batter until it’s free of any lumps to achieve a silky pie crust.
  • Don’t Overbake: Keep an eye on your pie while it’s in the oven to prevent it from becoming too dark or dry.

Healthier Option

For a healthier twist, you can substitute some of the ingredients with healthier alternatives like whole wheat flour, almond milk, and coconut sugar. Experiment with different combinations to find the perfect balance of taste and nutrition.


  1. Can I use a different sweetener instead of stevia? Yes, you can use regular sugar or any other sweetener of your choice in the same quantity.
  2. How can I store leftover apple pie? Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. You can also freeze it for longer storage.
  3. Can I make this pie ahead of time? Yes, you can prepare the pie ahead of time and refrigerate it before baking. Simply let it come to room temperature before baking as directed.
  4. What should I serve with apple pie? Apple pie pairs wonderfully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce, or a dollop of whipped cream.
  5. Can I use pre-made pie crust instead of making it from scratch? Absolutely! Using a store-bought pie crust can save you time without compromising on taste.


In just 5 minutes of prep work and 25 minutes of baking, you can create a heavenly apple pie that will delight your taste buds and impress your friends and family. Whether you’re craving a cozy dessert for a chilly evening or looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, this quick and easy recipe is sure to become a favorite in your kitchen.
