How old-fashioned can you get? This isd just totally terrific! Serve with a vanilla or orange sauce.
Serves: 8
Prep.Time: 35 minutes + 30 minutes baking
3 cups tart apples -- sliced
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine -- melted
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 1-1/2 quart casserole baking dish.
2. Prepare apples, using only tart ones such as Granny Smith. Place the apples in baking dish. Drizzle the molasses over the apples and then sprinkle the spices over that.
3. Bake until apples are soft. Time varies depending on what kind of apples you use. Pierce with a sharp knife to test when soft, then pour the topping over apples and bake for 25 minutes longer or until top is brown and crusty. (Set oven at 375 degrees to bake topping.)
TOPPING: Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix together the egg which has been well beaten, milk and melted margarine. Stir gently into the flour mixture. Pour over cooked apples and bake until crusty and browned.
