A wonderful and different apple dessert.
Top Review by teapotter
This was pretty good. Got up very early and was looking for a breakfast idea and saw the picture of this and decided to try it. I resized the recipe to make 6 servings. I used golden yellow sugar (light brown) to make the syrup. In the dry ingredients, left out the salt, used 3/4 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp baking powder for the 6 serving size recipe and used buttermilk for the milk. Used only 1/4 cup of shortening instead of the 3/8 c the resized recipe called for. It worked just fine. This is probably meant for a dessert but it was great for breakfast instead of cereal. Some ate it plain, some poured on milk and some topped it with vanilla yogurt. It was enjoyed by all.
