Granny Smith's Apple Pandowdy Recipe


  • 4 c of your favorite tart apples - Granny Smith is my choice - peeled, and thinly sliced. (About 5 apples will fill a deep dish like the one in the photo)
  • 1-1/4 c all purpose flour (or your favorite gluten free flour)
  • 3/4 c dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 c vanilla sugar (split and bury 1 vanilla bean in a jar of 2 cups of granulated sugar for at least 1 week, preferably longer)
  • 1/4 lb cooked and finely diced bacon (optional, but it works for me)
  • 1 tsp + 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 c water
  • 6 tbsp sweet butter
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice (put the rest of the lemon in your Preserved Lemon jar)
  • 2/3 c whole milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
