Baking: Mama's Walnut Pie

Thursday, January 29, 2015

It was a colleague's birthday and I wanted to bring something sweet, as well as savoury. I had recently been to a restaurant where they served me walnut pie. It reminded me of Mum because her pie is the best.

  • Butter crust pastry
  • 120g walnuts
  • 30g brown sugar
  • 1/2 C golden syrup (or honey)
  • salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • (optional) 30g coconut powder
Lay the butter crust into your pie tin, cover with baking paper and bake for 15 minutes at 170 degrees Celsius. Mix all the other ingredients, pour it into the pre-baked pastry, then bake for another 20 minutes or so. 

I couldn't find golden syrup at home so used honey instead. This is such an easy recipe. It doesn't require many things nor does it take too long to bake. I'm still in the process of getting to know the oven in my new home (the door doesn't shut fully), but people seemed to like the pie, thankfully :)
