Fall is here again!

B is for Baking! This week, I am hitting the "keep it simple" button for the Blogging Through the Alphabet post.

I pull this recipe out each fall (and at other times of the year when I want a little fall in my diet.)

Virginia Apple Pudding

½ C butter (NOT margarine – if you can't use butter, use coconut oil. Margarine changes the flavor and it is not a good change.)
1 C sugar
1 C white flour
2 t baking powder
¼ t salt
¼ t cinnamon
2 t vanilla
1 C milk
2 C sliced apples

Preheat oven to 375. While heating, put butter in a 2 quart casserole pan and put in the oven to melt it. (I usually double this recipe and do it in a 9x13 pan.) Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the apples and stir to make a batter. Once the butter is melted in the pan, remove it and place on the stove. Pour in the batter all around on top of the melted butter. Then, put the apple slices on top of the batter and press it into the batter. Bake until the batter rises over the apples and the crust is browned; about 30-40 minutes (a little longer if doubled). Cool for ten minutes and enjoy as-is or add vanilla ice cream. 

This is a REALLY good recipe. J

It sounds delicious, and easy enough that my youngest could help make it. (I promise not to tell you if we make it with some gross margarine so that it's safe for her milk-allergy.)

Cristi, you crack me up! You should use coconut oil. I have, and it is truly delicious that way! :D

This sounds like it would be so good. I've never had anything like this, but I love fall recipes. I'm a butter person, too!

Kate said...

Butter is the best!! :D

Thanks for visiting!

Sounds delicious....I'll be sure to let you know if it works with GF flour and 'gross' dairy-free 'butter'! LOL

LOL, Erica, I know that folks can't all use butter, but margarine *does* change the taste of it - that's why I say it is gross. :) I recommend coconut oil in place of it. I think I will add that to the post!

I hope you enjoy it!

Another allergy family...I'll have to do it gluten free, but I promise to use coconut oil instead of margarine. If Celia doesn't use it all making her cookies, that is. ;)
