This apple pie recipe is classic and traditional. With warm apples and hints of cinnamon and vanilla, the cake itself is moist and delicious. This unique, old-fashioned dessert goes well with a cup of hot coffee or even a scoop of ice cream. But the main characters, cinnamon and Granny Smith apples, well covered in the dough, make the apple pie incredibly delicious.  With the caramel icing, you can put everything together for the finishing touch.

How to make apple pie

The dough for this apple pie recipe is easier than ever. It fits perfectly in a good standard box. Start by preheating the oven and greasing your classic. Next, mix the wet ingredients in the same bowl.

Next, mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Mix well.

The next special step: Add the peeled, crushed and diced apples to the dough and mix well.

After about an hour in the oven, the Gugelhupf is cooked to perfection.

While it cools, take the time to make the caramel glaze. Simply melt the butter, cream and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and dissolve the sugar. Stir in the custard and let it cool and thicken for a few minutes.

Place the cake in the glaze while still warm and serve immediately.


The best apples for this apple pie are Granny Smith’s: They are tangy and firm, making them the best baked apples.

Adjust spices and textures to suit your taste: If you have pumpkin pie or ginger, add it instead of cinnamon. Add chopped nuts or pecans if desired.

Apple pie storage

This apple pie will easily stay on the counter for several hours at room temperature. Then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. This simple method of storage makes it easy to do in advance. Allow the apple pie to cool completely before wrapping tightly in plastic wrap and storing in the refrigerator. A sealed hopper container will also work.


Grease a 9-inch skillet and preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Beat the sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir the dry ingredients until moistened and mixed. Fold the apples and place them in a greased pan.

Bake in a preheated oven for 50-65 minutes, until an inserted toothpick is dry.

Cook in pan for about 20 minutes, then remove from pan to a rack.

While the cake cools, prepare the caramel glaze. Heat the brown sugar and cream in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve the sugar.

Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Stir until everything is combined.

Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes to allow it to condense.

Pour the caramel glaze over the warm cake and serve.


Apple pie makes a great gift. The variety of shapes and extras, such as apple cubes and caramel icing, are sure to impress.
