Give me an apple, and I will bake you a cake.
I buy a few apples every week during the fall so when I need a quick apple dessert, I am ready.
This one wins for easiest.
Not sure why they call this Ozark PUDDING? There is nothing pudding about it.
It's a skillet cake in my book.
Some Ozark pudding recipes use butter, but this one does not, and it's still super moist and yummy.
The brown sugar and pecans make this a nice sticky apple dessert.
Vanilla ice-cream optional, but I highly recommend it.
Ozark Pudding Cake (adapted from Southern Food)
1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup finely chopped peeled apples
Mix the first 3 ingredients in a bowl.
In another bowl, mix the eggs, vanilla and sugar.
Add in the dry ingredients and mix well.
Next goes in the apples and nuts. A nice batter will form.
Spread into a 9" well buttered cast iron skillet and bake for 30 minutes at 350F.
Good right out of the pan, or the next day.
