Possibly Louisa May Alcott's Apple Slump

This morning when I went to the store I got some apples for € .69/kilo. What a super bargain! That's less than € .35 a pound. Now what am I going to bake with them?
I found this recipe on the internet: Possibly Louisa May Alcott's Apple Slump @ this site

What is a slump you ask? A slump is a baked or steamed homey, old-fashioned dessert with fruit on the bottom and a batter-based, cakey topping. It might be served with whipped cream or ice cream.
Here it is right out of the oven. A little of it baked over because my pan was too small.
I need to get one a little larger.

Here's side view - you can see the apples and their juice. I had to have a piece. It is good, kinda like shortcake already on top of the fruit. If I had vanilla ice cream it would have been great with it. You need to try this because you can use what ever fruit you want.

Possibly Louisa May Alcott's Apple Slump

Serving Size: 8

Filling:6 tart apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt


1 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp double-acting baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup milk

1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Toss together the apples, sugar and spices and place in a buttered baking dish. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
While this is baking, prepare the topping, starting by sifting together the dry ingredients. In separate bowl, mix the egg, milk and butter and add this mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring till just combined. Spread the topping over apples and bake at 350F for an additional 25 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
