I found this one in a Dr. Oetker cookbook. I used spelt bran instead of finely ground spelt and it turned out fantastic, so I think spelt flour - or any other whole wheat flour for that matter - would do the same trick.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375-400 °F.
  2. Beat butter in a large bowl until creamy (about 30 sec.).
  3. Gradually add maple syrup and vanilla seeds.
  4. Beat until the mixture becomes creamy and then stir in the eggs, one at a time.
  5. In a separate bowl mix spelt, rolled oats and baking powder.
  6. Gradually add the dry mix to the butter-egg mixture. Stir well.
  7. Put 2/3 of the mass in a well greased 9 inch pan and smooth down.
  8. Peel the apples and cut them into small pieces and spread them on the batter.
  9. Scatter sultanas over the apple fill.
  10. Using 2 teaspoons, spoon the remaining batter into heaps and spread them over the apples.
  11. Spread sliced almonds and butter flakes over the pie.
  12. Bake at 375-400°F for 50-60 minutes. Check it after 35 minutes and cover with foil if the surface gets too brown.
  13. Serve with whipped cream or maple or ginger syrup. (I use Recipe #123111).
