This has supposedly a food prepared by the Amish.
"Shoo fly pie and apple pan dowdy"
yadda yadda, somethin somethin ...stomach sez howdy
Amish dont have anything like this, they do, however, make an Apple Brown Betty.
You dont need it.
Originally, Apple Pan Dowdy was a useful way to use up bread crumbs and vary the presentation of the ubiquitious apple on the winter menu.
A little sugar was used--and a little butter--and perhaps just a dusting of store-bought spice.
Current recipes range from the original frugal desert to a cholesterol-heavy gastronomic delight using lots of butter, and lots of sugar and topping the individual servings with ice cream or whipped cream.
Try Googling for recipes--you'll be startled at the variety.
John Devries from east 65th st. NYC used to talk about that alot. He was a designed who died some years back. I photographed johns socken feet resting on the world trade centers right from underneath when the remains of the west side highway was still up and used for mass walking and skating.
This is for you JD. I miss your wonderfull appreciation of life and me ...Perhaps now I will no longer be Berenice's Addict...
Also, really thanks Noddy24
My god that was President John Adams Wife ?
Abigail Adams was known as a good but frugal cook. Of course she rarely had John around to rag about her cooking.
Im surprised that DOWDY is a verb, as in I dowdt, you dowdy, he she or it dowdies, Wunder what "to dowdie" is?
