Heavenly Apple Pie

I know that many people are not fans of baked fruit desserts, but believe me when I say that this will change your life!  This is a dessert that has been around in our family since I can remember, & it is my go to recipe that I use whenever I am making something for an event.

My family also loves this, & a memory that we all still chuckle about is my grandpa asking my mum to make her “um, delicious pudding.  What’s it called again?  Praise the Lord Pudding?”.  He knew the name had something to do with heaven/God & this is what his mind came up with!

So, here it goes!  Make sure you save this as it will be a huge hit – guaranteed.  Plus it is so super easy that you don’t need to stress about having to make something that people will enjoy.


Ingredients – Pie
1C Sugar                                         5ml Baking Powder
