Wholemeal fruit pie base

    1 hour 25 min

    After various trials which ended up in a crumbly pie base that was impossible to roll out, I found this formula for a wholemeal fruit pie base with coconut oil.

    Makes: 1 pie base

    • 100g wholemeal wheat flour
    • 50g wholemeal spelt flour
    • 1 tablespoon demerara sugar
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 50g coconut oil

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Extra time:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr25min 

    1. Place flours, sugar and salt in the food processor. Warm the coconut oil till it's liquid and add to the processor. Process until the mixture has the consistency of fine sand. Add ice water 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture holds together.
    2. Remove from the food processor and knead briefly with your hands to form a ball. Roll out between two layers of baking parchment to the desired size.
    3. Grease the pie tin and line it with the pastry. Place it in the freezer while you preheat the oven.
    4. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    5. Add a fruit topping of your choice to the chilled pastry case.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven until the base is lightly browned. The baking time depends on the thickness of the base and the topping; a blueberry pie I made took about 40 minutes.
