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.
