An Australian home baker has revealed how to make the best homemade apple pie using seven ingredients.
John posted a concise step-by-step video on TikTok to demonstrate how easy the pie is to make.
The ‘super simple’ recipe requires Granny Smith apples, a cinnamon stick, sugar, lemon juice, water, shortcrust pastry and chocolate sea-salt caramel seasoning – John’s secret ingredient.
The home cook also runs a local business called Aussie Q and sells high-quality barbecue knives.
To make the pie, John first chopped five apples into cubes and placed the pieces in a bowl with the cinnamon stick, sugar, lemon juice, chocolate caramel seasoning and water.
The apples were then cooked in a pot on the stove while John prepared the shortcrust pastry.
Once the apple filling was cooked it was poured into the pastry tin and left to cool.
Another two apples were then thinly sliced and placed in a circular formation on top.
John’s secret tip is to add a sprinkle of chocolate sea-salt caramel seasoning onto the pie before its cooked in the oven.
