My Mother used to make this for us as a special treat. I don't know where she got this recipe or what it is called (hence the title). My husband loves this and encouraged me to submit it. This recipe is full of sugar and oil and is as unhealthy as a desert can be but very yummy.
Another fine recipe from James Barber... A perfect "warm-me-up" dessert after an afternoon of tobogganing or skiing. HINT: Use large, crisp baking apples... You could use maple syrup instead of the brown sugar, figs or chopped dates instead of the raisins or white wine or apple cider instead of the apple juice. * McIntosh apples are not recommended in this recipe.
This is my favorite chocolate cake. No fuss, no mess and very moist. Back in the early days when it was paycheck to paycheck, this simple dessert made it into his lunchbox many a day because it was cheap and simple. No eggs, no milk.
oh it sounds good. Be a great recipe for breakfast as well as dessert!
He describes it better than I could: "With fruit that good, you don't need to fuss, so my mother would merely combine seasoned sour cream with the berries under a brown sugar topping and pop it under the broiler. You can follow her lead, but only when the blackberries are perfect. Otherwise, substitute wild Maine blueberries and crème fraîche." from chef2chef
Apple pandowdy is a bit like an apple pie but with fluffy cake on top. When I was growing up, we had an apple tree in the back yard. The apples were too tart to eat raw, but they were delicious in baked desserts. This is the first one I ever made on my own. You can substitute molasses for brown sugar like I normally do, and I use vanilla paste instead of vanilla extract. You can also omit the bourbon, if desired.
This is so easy and SO delicious. It's best made with fresh apricots (though in a pinch I have used tinned apricot halves, well-drained). I have lost count of how often I have made this, and of how many people have complemented me on it!
Modified from a recipe in a Pike Place Market Basket newsletter. Apricots and cherries have been fabulous in Washington this summer and this recipe is quick, easy and very yummy. Like all crisps and cobblers, this is very flexible. Blackberries or blueberries can be substituted for cherries, and peaches can be substituted for apricots (I add some cornstarch when using peaches as they generate more juices than apricots).
Though Margaret Walker orchards was to provide fruits for the manufacture of jams and jellies, Margaret made sure some of the apricots went on the table. Apricots making a lovely crisp. Tweeked from This recipe inmamaskitchen.
