Applescotch bake

On Friday I made what I believe is hands down the best apple based dessert I’ve ever had. From what I gather it is basically a deconstructed homage to apple dumplings. There is quite a large amount of sugar in it but surprisingly not too sweet, well very sweet but not cloyingly so.. But it did turn out amazing!

I got this recipy from another blog called The Thrifty frugal mom and decided to go with it cause I happily had all the ingredients in the house, and considering I’m at that annoying phase where you run out of all your bulk items at once, that is a tricky thing. That and I had left over apples from Martin’s visit.

*Note this recipy requires a very large mixing bowl. I had to use my wok cause my mixing bowl is too small.. my kingdom for an oversized mixing bowl..


So the recipy is as follows:

1 1/4 c brown sugar

1 tbsp cornflour

2 c cold water

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp butter


2 c flour

1/4 c sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 c butter (room temp)

6 apples

3/4 c milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the sauce combine the sugar, corn flour and water in a sauce pan and cook till slightly thickened (it wont thicken much). Add the vanilla and butter and stir till melted. Pour into a greased 9×13 baking dish. The dumplings were made by mixing together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter till it is crumbly. Add the apples and stir. Then mix the milk and vanilla together in till the mixture is just moistened. Drop the dumpling mixture by spoonful into the sauce in the baking dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to form a crust.

Bake at 170 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes.

So the final beautiful result.
