Emma Fischer's Apple Pudding

I can't believe that I haven't posted this until now. This is the Magidow family's all-time favorite recipe involving apples; it was given to me by a dear friend who died an early and untimely death; each time I make it I think of her. To Toni!

Fill buttered baking dish with chopped and peeled apples. Sprinkle with sugar and dot with butter. Put in medium oven (350) while making the batter:

1/2 cup soft butter
1 cup sugar

Cream butter and sugar well. Add:

1 well-beaten egg
1 small cup flour sifted with 1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon vanilla

Pour (or plop) batter over apples and bake 45 minutes or until brown. Serve hot from the oven. Invite your friends. Makes a great breakfast treat, too.

As you can see, there is no specific amount of apples, just kind of mound them up so they don't fall out of the pan. The batter will seem kind of sticky, but it melts into a lovely, golden crust. It is a great alternative to pie or apple crumble and most people have all these ingredients handy.

Happy Fall!

OMG I am such a huge dork! I just made this recipe for probably the 50th time and forgot to add the baking powder! It's not done cooking yet but the crust looks very...melty. I think it will still taste good but I'm not sure what the texture will be like :P
