Since I hadn't posted anything from this book yet, I decided to see what it had to offer for apple recipes.
As an aside, this book is a reminder of The Chambers that Got Away. It was at an estate sale, in pristine condition and had all the do-dads for the Thermowell. I put a bid on it, but didn't win. <insert dramatic sigh here> In the end, I found my Betty, but she needed a lot more work than TCtGA would have required.

As I guessed, it was easy to make. The hardest part was spreading the batter around the baking dish. "Pour the batter" is a very optimistic phrase for this batter. It's very stiff and just barely enough to coat the apples.

However, it puffs up quite a bit during baking. Ta da!
