I’ve heard this recipe called Swedish apple pie – but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen it made by my swedish family. I made one over the weekend to take to a new knitting group. The hostess also said she’d never seen such a pie in her swedish family either. So maybe it’s a misnomer. Anyway, I make it sometimes with less sugar just to eat for breakfast, so that’s what I call it. My favorite way to eat it is to turn it up side down so the apples are on the top, and then melt some cheddar cheese on it. So. Good.
3 apples, peeled cored and sliced
3/4C sugar (maybe 1/2C if you’re making it for breakfast)
4T butter (you could cut this too, but then it’d be dry)
1 1/2t baking powder
cinnamon to taste
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a pie plate with the apple wedges. Sprinkle as much, or as little, cinnamon as you want over them. If you want something sweeter this is really good with some cajeta drizzled over the fruit.
Melt the butter. In one bowl mix milk, eggs, and butter together. In another mix the salt, sugar, flour, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix until everything is just blended.
Pour the whole mess into the pie dish, over the apples. It should cover them pretty thoroughly. Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Eat with cheese – seriously, it’s better this way.
