Please don't ask me where I found this recipe or why it is called what it is. I just don't remember. This was a family favourite when the boys were young. Yes, back in the days when I used to bake.
2 cups sliced apples
1/4 cup molasses or brown sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 well beaten egg
1-1/2 cups sifted enriched flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
Pour apples in greased baking dish. Sprinkle with molasses or brown sugar, spices, and 1/4 tsp salt. Bake in a moderate oven 350F until apples are soft.
Meanwhile prepare batter. Cream butter. Add sugar gradually, add egg. Mix and sift flour, baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Add, alternating with milk, to creamed butter mixture. Pour over apples and continue baking. Total baking time is about 35 minutes.
Serve from baking dish or turn out with apples on top. Serve with hard sauce or cream.
