Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Apple Cake Pie

on September 19, 2014

The recipe for today comes from one of Grandma’s sisters. In this photo, Grandma is the one with the big hair bow, and this sister is the one with the big bonnet. This must have been a special occasion to be able to wear a hair bow and bonnet like that! Even the two brothers look spiffy in what looks like their Sunday best. Except for a couple of little things, this photo could have been taken yesterday. The clothes don’t look that different and the hairstyles aren’t that different, even though this was taken almost a hundred years ago. The more things change, the more they stay the same!

I still just love how much these sisters stayed close, exchanged recipes, and lived so close to each other much of their lives. This is one recipe exchange just right for this time of year. Apple Cake Pie is another one that is so easy, so fast, and sooooo good!

Apple Cake Pie

This makes a great week night dessert.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Apple Cake Pie

5 large apples

3/4 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon lemon juice (It doesn’t say what to do with this and I didn’t see it until I was finished so I left it out.)

1/4 cup butter

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

Slice fruit thin, place in well buttered 10″ pie tin and cover with 1/4 cup sugar.

Cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar and beaten egg.

Sift flour, salt, and baking powder, and add to creamed mixture.

Spread over fruit and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.


I think this is the point at which you might want to use the lemon juice – to keep the apples from browning. Next time I’d put on a sprinkle of cinnamon at this point. Fall and apples mean cinnamon to me.


I used two spoons to put on dollops of the batter and spread it over the top of the slices.


It comes out of the oven browned and delicious.


Buttering the pie plate made it come out very easily.


You can see the layers of apples.


Whipped cream is the perfect topper. I’d say this took me about 10 minutes to make, not including the baking. It’s so easy and so good. Try it tonight!
