Naked Apple Pie

11/21/05I got this recipe a couple of years ago from an email
loop that I used to be part of (but I don’t remember
which one :)). It is VERY rich and delicious! AND
easy and quick to throw together.

My notes are in ( ) Today I made this for our
homeschool group (but no one actually ate any, we were
too busy talking, and then it was time to leave :)).
I tripled the recipe and baked it in my 12 inch cast
iron skillet.


1/2 cup all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar (I used sucanat, a natural, unrefined brown sugar)
1/2 cup granulated sugar (For our tastes, it is plenty sweet with the sucanat, so I leave this out altogether)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 large Tart Apples
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9″ pie pan. Sift
together flour and baking powder (I don’t sift, I just
use my whisk).
With electric mixer; combine egg, brown sugar, sugar
(I didn’t use the sugar, just the brown sugar
(sucanat)), vanilla and salt. Beat 1 minute and add
flour, continue beating until combined.
Peel, core, and thinly slice apples. stir apples and
nuts into batter (today I layered the apples in the
pan, sprinkled the nuts over the top, then poured the
batter over that…it was very yummy, and like a
cobbler). Spoon into prepared pie pan. Bake for 30
Cool completely and serve with whipped cream or ice
cream (we like it best served warm, but it is
wonderful cooled also).

Do not cover pie or it will become soggy.
