Baking with Dorie: Apple Pandowdy

It has been a week of baking! I made this Apple Pandowdy a couple of nights ago for dessert. I loved it, but I love apple desserts. My son loved it. My hubs made a face. *Sigh* cooked fruit…. However, he liked the design on top a lot.

I know, not a pretty picture. Apple Pandowdy is a bottom crustless apple dessert with scraps of dough for the top. One person did beautiful fall leaves, others cut triangles. Clearly, I needed something to make my hubs take a second look. This did not cook down much and the apples stayed kind of firm which was lovely.

Last night I tuned in for the release of “Tell the Bees I’m Gone”, Diana Gabaldon’s newest book in the Outlander series. If you are a fan you know how very exciting this was! It was so fun to see the interview, hear an excerpt from the ebook, and see a cooking demo with Teresa Carle-Sanders, the author of Outlander Kitchen. Her demo was of Apple Pandowdy but it was spelled differently. She mentioned that it was rumored that Apple Pandowdy was a favorite of Abigail Adams. Teresa said Abigail would probably have used Newtown Pippin Apples to make her version. It was fun to see a different variation on the dessert I happened to be making for this week.

We bake the two Tuesdays a month from Everyday Dorie. Check out Tuesdays with Dorie for other baker’s take on this recipe!

  1. Very creative crust topping! Love it. I pre-ordered my book so I DO know how exciting it is the book is coming out! I did not know about anything to watch though. Bummer


  2. Love love love the Star Wars design on top! That’s one way to get your husband interested in it. I personally enjoy fruit desserts, and this was no exception.
