Apple Pan-Dowdy

Updated: Apr 6, 2021

A take on a traditional cobbler, this Apple Pan-Dowdy is best made with fresh apples and pure Brantview Farms Maple syrup and sugar. The maple and spices, bring the apples to life along with the buttery breading. It is a great fall dessert, when apple picking is underway. Serve this dish warm with vanilla ice cream and you will receive many smiles.



1 1/4 cup flour (divided 1 cup and 1/4 cup)

1 tsp vinegar

3/4 cup water

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

2 T butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

4-6 apples, peeled and sliced

2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

3 T shortening

3/4 cup milk

A metal pan with a baked dough and brown sugary liquid sits, ready to be cut and served.

Combine maple syrup, 1/4 cup of flour, vinegar, water and maple sugar in a pan on stove. Cook until thick.

Add nutmeg, cinnamon, butter and vanilla to mixture and continue to simmer.

Peel apples and slice into an 8" square pan. Pour the warm sauce mixture over the apples in pan.

In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, salt, shortening, 1 cup of flour and milk. Drop the batter by the spoonful onto the apples. Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes.

Remove and serve warm. Great paired with vanilla ice cream maple sundae!
