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.
