And now for the recipe

It really is such an easy dessert, you must try it.

6 medium apples (I thought it was 5!)
50 g butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup plain flour
1/3 cup self-raising flour
4 eggs, beaten lightly
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup cream
80g butter, melted, extra
1 tsp vanilla extract

1.  Preheat oven to moderately hot (200C).  Grease shallow 2.5 L (10 cup) ovenproof dish.  Peel, core and halve apples;  cut each half into four wedges.

2.  Melt butter in large frying pan;  cook apple, stirring, 5 mins or until browned lightly.  Add brown sugar;  cook 5 mins or until mixture thickens.  Place into dish;  cool 5 minutes.

3.  Combine caster sugar and sifted flours in medium bowl.  Gradually whisk in combined remaining ingredients until smooth;  pour over apple mixture.  Bake, uncovered, 40 mins.

4.  Serve hot (with custard & cream, even vanilla ice-cream would go down a treat).  Dust with sifted icing sugar if desired (which I forgot to do, and regret deeply).

Give it a whirl.  Your kids will love you.


  1. Thanks Fiona, you are becoming more and more like the Pioneer Woman every day (Aussie version). You will have to start writing You and Matthew's love story soon.

    Steve, the Toowong butcher, sends his regards.
    He had a good laugh about the cuddily Brahman and hopes it helped with the washing of the jeans.
    Have taken a copy of this recipe so will try to make it. God help the apples!
    I will let you know the result - GREAT or DISASTER! Nothing in between with me.

  3. YUM!!! This looks amazing! Definitely trying! Thanks!

  4. Fantastic recipe. Just love this. It will get a whirl in the Farmhouse soon.

  5. Just read Colin's comment. A cow that can wash jeans - now there's an idea. If you find one let me know.

  6. O&E: Snort, chuckle, sigh. Now, I'm off to find me a basset hound.

    Colin: Pleased to be providing both you and the Toowong butcher with some amusement. Good luck with the cooking ... look forward to hearing of the end result.

    FG&B & AFW: Enjoy.

  7. Looking for a recipe I think we once got from an old post of yours, BUT now cannot find it. A jelly topped slice? Does it ring any bells?
