Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10
  • 1 1/4 Cups butter
  • 2/3 Cup sugar
  • 1 egg, well-beaten
  • 2 1/2 Cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 3 Cups apples, sliced and pared
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 2 Cups sweetened whipped cream
  1. Cream butter and add sugar gradually. When well combined, mix in the egg.
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt and add alternately with the milk.
  3. Spread apples in the bottom of a shallow, well-buttered ovenproof-china baking dish.
  4. Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Pour batter over the top, spreading it evenly.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 50 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes after removing from oven. To serve, invert on serving platter or serve directly from baking dish.
  6. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.
A buttered baking pan or dish, 9x9x2, works equally well.
