No pastry apple pie

    1 hour 20 min

    I won 1st place in an apple contest with this recipe. It is the easiest and best apple pie I have ever tasted. It has no pastry, believe me, it doesn't need one. I always use Granny Smith apples because they are the best apples for pies. Enjoy!!!!

    Very tasty and very easy to make! I halved the recipe and used it to make two smaller cakes. I also added a little more cinammon to the batter. It worked out great!  -  22 Sep 2011
