The good thing about the recipe we came up with was everything went into one bowl for mixing. No creaming butter and sugar and all of that.
8 oz butter
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
Then the hard part of peeling, coring and chopping up 4 small apples went to hubby.
The apples were sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar and microwaved for for 2 minutes,
then folded into the mix. The batter on it's own could use less flour, but we had to increase it to account for the juice from the microwaved apples.
Which also explains why it took almost 50 minutes to bake at 350F.
It was good while still warm, and even better the next day. Fortunately the batter was enough for two 9x9 pans.
