Apple Pie Toasties


The Muslimah food bloggers community always hosts an event on the 10th of each month. This year I wasn't able to join in many of their events. Even this month I  had the recipe on hand but still get to post it by 10th. So here it is a rather overdue post.

The idea for this recipe came when I was watching season 8 of Masterchef Australia. In this episode of the series, the contestants were asked to create jaffles. A jaffle is an Australian word for a toasted sandwich or toastie.
 Jaffles are toasted sandwiches. Toasted in the sense it's toasted in those sandwich toasters or jaffle maker. There some really delicious ones and one that really caught my eye was apple pie jaffle by Chloe.

So I decided to create my own.  I tried this twice. The first time I used green granny smith apples. The second time I used regular eating apples. I prefer the green apples as the slices were in still in slices and didn't turn into mush.  So use green granny smith apples for this recipe.


The apple slices are cooked on the stovetop along with the sugars and a little butter and cornflour.  The cornflour makes the sauce thicker.


  Let the mixture cool and then spoon onto the sandwich bread slice and then top with another slice of bread and toast in the sandwich toaster or jaffle maker.


My sandwich toaster was completely destroyed and unfortunately for me the trays were not removable.

 I had to maneuver it around the sink and finally figured its easier to clean with a warm sponge and gently clean it. It takes time but better to save the toaster maker right?.  But it was so much worth the effort.

How to cook Apple pie toasties

  2. Place in a small saucepan with  the sugars,  cornflour and a little ( half teaspoon of butter). Let the apples soften and sauce reduce . Cool.
  3. Butter the bread slices and place inside the sandwich toaster ( which has also been slightly buttered) with the buttered side  of the  bread facing out.
  4. Add some filling, place the second slice of bread on top, buttered side up,  then press the sandwich toaster down to cook.
  5. Carefully open the sandwich toaster, use a bread knife to carefully remove any stuck pieces. 
  6. Remove the sandwiches to a plate, dust with icing sugar and serve warm.
