Recipe: Traditional Lithuanian Apple Pie

Today I’m here with a traditional Lithuanian apple pie which kind of resembles a sponge cake. My grandma makes this pie all the time and I have continued to do so. I sometimes make it a bit healthier by omitting the butter and will post a recipe of the rendition later on, but today I am bringing you a Lithuanian and my family’s classic recipe.

I’ve been making it and bringing it into work when there are special occasions as everyone loves it so I hope you do too!



4 apples-diced

150 grams butter unsalted

1/2 cup caster sugar

pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 eggs

2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 tsp baking powder

1 cup flour

1. Dice up the apples, set aside.

2. Melt butter on medium-low heat and mix in with sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla and pinch of salt. Once mixed – add in the apples.

3. Add flour, baking powder and cinnamon to the mixture and mix thoroughly, coating all the apples.

4. Line a square or circular pan with non-stick paper and add batter, spreading it out evenly.

5. Bake at 170 degrees C for 30-35 minutes. Great both warm and cold.
