Meg Makes: Apple season means it's time for simple dessert

Suddenly, it's apple season, which makes me incredibly happy.

I love apples year-round, especially dipped in peanut butter or cooked into oatmeal. But apple desserts can't be beat, especially this time of year.

Today's recipe is a simple one. It comes from my coworker, Donna Huls. Donna got the recipe from her sister-in-law, Susi.

It's simple, and I loved it because the apples are the star of the show. This time of year, it seems fitting to make a dessert that's completely focused.


1 cup flour

1½ cups sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 egg

6-7 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced

1 stick butter, melted

¼ teaspoon cinnamon or to taste

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add egg and mix.

Spread apple slices in a greased 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

Sprinkle flour mixture over apples, then pour melted butter over the top.

Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Bake 35 to 40 minutes.
