Here is something different to our usual recipes, a sweet treat that will blow your mind. This pie can be eaten warm, not hot, and can be stored in the fridge for three to four days afterwards, so you do not have to eat it in one sitting, if you can stop yourself.

Cooking time: 35 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups (225g) plain flour
