Date Muesli Apple Pie   3 comments

I was craving for a delicious dessert for a long time, and now, with some muesli left at home and a bunch of nuts begging to be utilised in some way, I went on to adapt the popular Apple Pie with some Dates bought from a nearby Dry Fruits store. Roasted, Buttered & Baked Muesli with Semolina was the perfect crunchy combination for this pie. The flavours matched beautifully with another crunchy combination of apples, dates & nuts as filling and on the wholesome not only it tasted but looked divine as well πŸ˜‰

2 Small Red Apples – Peeled & Grated Coarsely
8-10 Dried Dates – Chopped Coarsely
1 Tbsp Pine Nuts – Chopped into halves
1 Tbsp Mixed Nutes (Walnuts, Almonds, Prunes) – Chopped Coarsely
2 Tbsp Mixed Muesli
20 gms Suji (Fine Semolina)
25 gms Castor Sugar (Powdered Sugar)
2 Tbsp Honey
1 tsp Butter
1 tsp Ghee (Clarified Butter) – Substitue with 1 tsp Butter if not available
1 Tbsp fresh Lemon Juice
ΒΌ tsp Cinnamon – Freshly Powdered
Β½ tsp Baking Soda

-: Recipe :-

  1. Mix grated apples, chopped dates and nuts with 1 Tbsp Honey and Lemon Juice. Add Cinnamon and adjust sweetness as per taste (with more honey if required).
  2. Add 2 Tbsp Hot Water and mix well while mashing from back of spoon. After the filling is well mixed and roughly mashed, keep it aside.
  3. In a non-stick pan, roast the muesli for a few minutes till it gets very lightly browned. Add semolina and roast for another minute.
  4. Take the mix off heat and grind it roughly in a grinder for some 5-7 seconds.
  5. In a mixing bowl, mix this grainy powder with 1 Tbsp Honey, Sugar, Butter, Ghee and Baking Soda. Divide the dough into two parts.
  6. Grease a baking bowl with little butter and spread first half of the dough in the base.
  7. Drain the apple filling of any excess water and put it on top of the spread dough in the bowl.
  8. Make 4 thin rolls of the remaining half of the dough and set it on top of the pie in a criss-cross pattern.
  9. Pre-Heat Microwave Oven at 180Β°C and bake the pie for 30 minutes. Grill it in the end for 3-5 minutes to brown and crisp the top of the pie.
  10. Serve Hot and Enjoy the Ultimate Experience πŸ™‚
