Helen's Apple Pudding
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar*
1 tsp. baking powder
4 large apples*
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 Tbls. butter
1/4 cup water
"Sift dry ingredients. bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees. 2 Tbls. sugar"
That's it! Those are the directions that Helen hand-wrote in her book. Here are directions I found that should be a lot more helpful:
Sift together flour, 1 cup sugar, and baking powder. Add egg. Slice apples into greased baking dish and cover with flour mixture. Combine 2 Tbls. sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle over flour mixture.
Dot with butter and sprinkle with water. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
*Pack the brown sugar when you measure it into the cup.
*Use a good baking apple such as a Granny Smith, Rome, or Northern Spy
