This is a really easy and tasty dessert recipe. It's great served warm, fresh from the oven, or even cold, with vanilla ice cream. It's lighter and lower in calories than a pie, but just as satisfying!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter (or margarine) in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. Set aside to cool.
  3. Use only as much butter as you need to cover the bottom of the pan.
  4. In a bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  5. Mix in milk and vanilla.
  6. The batter might seem impossibly thick at first, but it thins out into pourable consistency with persistent stirring.
  7. You will not need to add any extra milk or water.
  8. Pour batter over melted butter and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon.
  10. Spoon the sliced apples over the batter and sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon.
  11. Again, DO NOT MIX OR STIR.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 minutes.

I scaled the recipe to serve 4 and followed the recipe to a T. However, the result was not good. After baking for 55 minutes, the bottom/side had formed a hard crust that was almost impossible cut through, while at the same time the centre of the dough was wet and soggy. I won't be making this again.

It was a big disappointment and it flopped. I did not MIX OR STIR. I would never make it again.
