I found this recipe in a book by Louisa May Alcott. It has become a favorite around here! I am a little late with it since the apple season is over, but we still make it occasionally in the winter.
Even though everyone loves it, we all call it "Apple Slop" for short. If we have visitors, it is quite funny to see their face when we say we are having "Apple Slop" for dessert. :-)
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! -krissy cooper
Serves about 12
8 cups tart apples, sliced
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix above ingredients and place in buttered baking dish. Bake uncovered until apples are soft; about twenty minutes. Meanwhile, mix:
3 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 (2 stick) butter (I use margarine)
Place above mixture on top of soft apples in baking dish. Bake another twenty-five minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
