Dutch Apple Bread

We're planning to move to Pennsylvania (Bethlehem area) next year after I graduate, and I am fascinated by everything PA related at this point. So for our baked good this weekend I decided to try a Mennonite recipe for Dutch Apple Bread. It has very little sugar and is not very sweet, but is very yummy and is so nice with the apples. We used Granny Smith apples because those are his favorites. We really liked this and I would make it again.

Dutch Apple Bread
Mennonite Community Cookbook

2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
5 tart apples, pared and sliced

Sift flour, measure and add baking powder, salt and sugar. Sift again. Cut shortening [they mean the butter] into dry ingredients as for pastry. Add beaten egg and milk. Beat thoroughly until well blended. Spread in a greased shallow pan, 8x12 inches. Press apple slices over the top and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes. Serve with milk. (Mrs. P. L. Buckwalter, Atglen, Pennsylvania)

I was making this when I found out Obama was elected. Isn't that a nice story for the kids?
"Momma, what were you doing when Obama was elected?"
"Baking a pastry."
Sounds downright homey, doesn't it?
