- 2 lbs apples, peeled, sliced
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 cup flour
- 1/3 cup butter
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Peel and core apples. Cut into eighths. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring fruit, cup of sugar, cinnamon, syrup and water to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer. Allow mix to thicken and apples to get fork tender. This should take about 20 minutes.
- Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Cut butter into flour mix, until crumbly.
- Add sugar and buttermilk. Stir to incorporate. The mix will be wet, more of a drop biscuit or almost a cake batter consistency.
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Pour apples into single two-quart casserole dish. Use a spoon to spread batter evenly over top. (It doesn’t have to be perfect.)
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops are golden.
