Recipe by karen

I'm not a fan of any of the desserts my family has always made for Passover, but this one I like. I've found that it doesn't make enough batter to really cover all of the apples on the top layer, but it still works for me. Maybe a more creative cook could find a way to adjust the ingredients for a bit more batter.
