APPLE COBBLER WITH STREUSEL TOPPING

Ohhh Yummm…perfect FALL treat!!

INGREDIENTS:

APPLE BASE
12 cups apples, peeled and sliced ( Macintosh, Jonagold)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

BATTER
1 1/3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup milk

STREUSEL TOPPING
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup oatmeal ( I use Quick Oats)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:
Prepare 9×13 pan with non-stick spray; preheat oven to 350.
Prepare APPLES: toss sliced apples with lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cornstarch. Pour apple mixture into prepared pan. BAKE APPLES 10 minutes.
While apples are baking, combine STREUSEL ingredients; set aside.
Prepare BATTER: Mix batter dry ingredients in a bowl. When apples are done, whisk in milk and melted butter (batter will thicken if it sits). Immediately pour batter over hot apples; sprinkle streusel on top.
Return to oven; bake 40-45 minutes or until top is browned and apples are bubbling.
Notes: 1) This can also be made in two 8×8 pans. 2) When I bake in glass pans, I use 325 degrees. 3) I sometimes toss in 1/2 cup cranberries or raisins to the apple mixture.
