It is rich and warm
Coating my leg
Pooling at the apple of my calf
Slowly sliding to my heel
This thick syrup of pain
Yeah yeah yeah.
I've been up since 4 with cramps and spasms.
Do you have a surplus of apples? Tart firm baking apples?
Here's a recipe that will take care of one or two and that last egg that looks so lonely in your fridge.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl mix:
1/2 C all purpose flour(I use whole wheat for this)
1 tsp baking powder(NOT baking soda)
1/2 tsp ground cinammon
1/2 tsp kosher salt(just 1/4 tsp if you use table salt!)
In a large bowl mix:
1 large egg
3/4 C sugar
Add dry mixture to wet and stir til blended.
1 1/2 C chopped apple(leave the peel on, okay?)(It's good for you and looks pretty)
1 C chopped nuts-I prefer walnuts though whatever you like will be fine I'm sure.
Spread batter in a well greased 9 in deep dish pie pan.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Serve warm or cool, with ice cream or fresh whipped cream if you're feeling fancy.
No pictures today...I've made this innumerable times and we always eat it it too fast for me to remember the camera.
Maybe next time.
