Add buckwheat flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, some cinnamon, baking powder, and a pinch of salt, and pulse to form a crust. If the mixture is too dry, carefully add water a tbsp. at a time to make the crust moldable.

Step 6/6

Cover filling with either with cookie cut-outs or a round of dough. For the latter, pierce top with a fork to allow steam to escape while baking. Place in preheated oven and bake at 180°C/350°F for approx. 30 min. Cover with aluminum foil and press down lightly so that the apple juice rises to the top and soaks the entire cake. Bake for approx. 45 – 60 min. more, until golden brown. Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before cutting. Enjoy!
