When I went apple picking a few weeks ago, I posted on Pa-Blam asking for help. I needed to know what to make with all the apples I had. Someone had suggested ‘apple pandowdy.’ I had never heard of it before, so I made use of The Google.
It seemed pretty straightforward and easy to make, just an upside down cobbler of sorts. I gathered elements from different recipes, and made something up. Then I tweaked some stuff and made it again. The third try was perfect.
Seriously, this is one of the easiest apple desserts I’ve made. It’s delicious on it’s own or with some vanilla ice cream.
4 Large Apples (I used Jonagold)
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 1/4 Cup Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Sugar
8 Tbsp (1 Stick) Butter, Melted
1/2 Cup Milk
Preheat oven to 350F
Core and slice the apples. In a large bowl, toss them with the maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Pour the apples into a sprayed or buttered baking dish and set aside.
Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
Add the melted butter and milk. Stir to make a smooth batter.
Pour the batter over the apples.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the batter has risen and browned.
