2 2 large apples
2 Tbsp 30 mL butter
3 Tbsp 45 mL white sugar
1/2 tsp 2 mL cinnamon
1 Tbsp 15 mL lemon juice
2/3 cup 150 mL milk
2/3 cup 150 mL white flour
2 Tbsp 30 mL vegetable oil
4 4 eggs
1 tsp 15 mL lemon peel (optional)


  1. Peel the apples and cut them into thin slices. A good number of slices is between 24 and 32. You can get this by cutting each quarter in half lengthwise and then cutting each half into 3 or 4 slices.
  2. Separately, mix the sugar and cinnamon together. If you skip this step, the cinnamon will stick to the apples on top of the pile instead of mixing in properly.
  3. Put the apples, butter, lemon juice, and sugar mixture together in a large measuring cup. We will mix them later, and that will be easier if the apples are on the bottom.
  4. Microwave the apple mixture on High power until you can easily stick a fork in the apples. The butter will melt here, so you don't have to melt it before.
  5. Mix the apple mixture well. The apples should end up coated with everything else.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, flour, oil, eggs, and lemon peel.
  7. Blend the batter ingredients together until smooth using a whisk or hand blender.
  8. Spread out the apples in the bottom of a greased pie plate. If there is anything in the apple mixture that doesn't stick to the apples, just pour it in after them.
  9. Pour the batter over the apples.
  10. Bake at 425F (215C) for 20-25 minutes until the top is puffy and golden brown.
