It’s the time of year when apples are ripe, crisp and plentiful. Many times I share Texas recipes here, but since I am a proud Canadian, and spend 1/2 my time each year here in the North Country I think our homegrown recipes deserve an equal chance. This one will warm you up on these cool Winter days and nights.
4 cups peeled and sliced apples 2/3 c. maple syrup 1/3 c. raisins 1 c. flour ¼ c. sugar 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder ½ tsp. baking soda ¼ tsp. salt ¼ c. butter, melted ½ c. buttermilk 1 egg 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Bring apples and maple syrup to boil in a saucepan; simmer until softened (about 3 minutes). Stir in raisins. Pour into greased 8” square baking pan.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
In another bowl whisk together milk, melted butter, egg and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients mixture just until combined.
Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto apples in the baking pan.
