Apple Bake


  • 5 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup water


  1. In a bowl, combine the apples, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples, pressing down to smooth top.
  2. Slowly pour water over the top; sprinkle with remaining cinnamon. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm.


  1. I love to smell the apples when they're baking. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I think I will try that next week :-)
