Apple Pie (Low-Fat)

As the summer is inevitably coming to an end, I am continuing to bake desserts with apples as usual. It is a must to bake an apple pie at least once a week.

The fact that I am an apple lover and a constant apple eater who likes to stuff them in every baked good does not make a problem, too.

This pie is an experiment which should be called "what to do if you have too many apples in the garden".

The most difficult part was peeling and coring so many apples. Especially with my smallish, uneven apples. But overall this is an easy recipe. With only a few ingredients it takes no more than 10 minutes preparation time. And the best part of it? It's completely fat free. And believe me, you could never say that after tasting it. It's very, very moist. I think pictures prove it. What is more, the cake is certainly delicious and light as there are much more apples than pastry. Now you can eat a pie for breakfast and even late in the evening and feel no guilt. What could be better?

Fat-Free Apple Pie

7 cups chopped apples (preferably mixed)
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
100ml buttermilk
150g all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
180g white sugar
1/3 tsp salt

1) Preheat oven to 180C. Prepare a deep baking dish.

2) In a small bowl, combine together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Set aside.

3) In another bowl, combine together eggs and buttermilk.

4) Add dry ingredients to the buttermilk/egg mixture. 

5) Place apples in a large bowl. Pour the batter over apple chunks and stir to coat evenly. Spread everything into the baking dish and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Leave to stand for a few hours, preferably overnight. Serve at room temperature.

Recipe by collecting memories


  1. It looks like a custard! That is incredible! Mmmm mmmm mmm - apple pie is my favorite pie and you nailed this one!

    1. Thank you! The texture really reminded me of a custard.

  2. This looks so yummy...and fat free means I can really indulge! Thanks for sharing.


  3. How is it fat free if there are 3 eggs in it?

    1. Yes, this pie is not egg-free. And it also has buttermilk in it which also contains fat. But when I said "fat-free" I had in mind butter or oil which you cannot find in this pie.

  4. The name of this recipe is misleading. It is not Fat Free.

  5. How is this recipe fat free with eggs and buttermilk? This is misleading and could be harmful to someone who is not educated enough about food fats and who needs to watch fat intake. Please consider renaming the recipe.

    1. You must be right! I will change the name to "low fat". :)

  6. Wow, what a nice idea, really different from a traditional apple pie! Do you thing i could make single servings? Bake it in smaller pans?

    1. I think you really could! Of course, I haven't tried it and cannot make sure that the outcome will be the same. If you try it, make sure you check your pies sooner because the baking time will be shorter. Good luck and let me know if you try it!
