I threw this pie together yesterday afternoon after picking apples in the morning and hearing my husband repeatedly ask if we had picked enough to make pie. Yes, we did. Many pies, in fact. At some point in the next month, I am hoping to make a real apple pie, one with a rolled-out pie crust and a latticed top, but to address the clearly urgent need for apple pie in our household, I made this one yesterday. My mom found this recipe years ago and enlisted me to make it many times. It’s so good and so easy, I haven’t made a different recipe since.
Honestly, the hardest part of this pie is peeling, coring, and slicing the apples, which you have to do for almost every apple recipe. Beyond that, though, this recipe simply calls for you to mix up a quick batter, spread it over your apples, and bake the whole thing. It’s good warm or cold, and of course, you can never go wrong with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Easy Apple Pie
6-7 apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Arrange apples in a greased 9″ pie plate.
Beat together the eggs, sugar, and butter. Fold in flour. Add baking powder and salt; mix well. Add vanilla. Pour/spread over apples.
Bake for 40-45 minutes.
(Note: I forgot to set my timer right away, and I think erred slightly on the side of it being underdone, which is why the middle looks a tad gooey. It still tastes good, though!)
