Apple Cobbler

Hope you all had a great Christmas and spent some quality time with your loved ones. We spent a nice relaxing day with friends and good food. There were several challenges putting this year's potluck menu together and we finally decided to have an assortment of food. I must say it was one of the healthiest and tastiest meal that I have eaten in a while. I decided to make the salad and dessert. The challenge was to come up with a dessert that would be easy to make, yet tasty. I considered several recipes and finally my husband suggested that I should make my apple cobbler recipe. After forty minutes, the cobbler was ready and the house was smelling of apples and cinnamon, adding the perfect touch to the holiday ambience. I must add that the recipe was a tremendous success and we didn't have any leftovers.

2 apples, cored and diced into small pieces
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
3/4 stick/cup butter
1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
1/8 tsp salt
2-3 graham crackers, crushed into coarse crumbs

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Add the butter to your baking pan and place it in the oven. While the butter melts, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt. Then add the milk in and whisk it all together. Add this to the melted butter in the pan and mix it together. Then add the apple slices and fold it into the batter. Sprinkle a layer of the graham crumbs over this to completely cover top of the pan. Bake this for 30-40 minutes. Take a knife and insert it into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean then the cake is ready. If not, bake for a few more minutes. Serve warm.

Cut the apples when you have measured all your ingredients and are ready to work on the recipe. If you cut the apples well in advance, the slices will turn brown due to oxidation and lose some texture. Do not over beat the mixture after adding the milk to the flour. You can serve it warm with some vanilla ice cream.
