DEPRESSION ERA APPLE DUMPLING PUDDING

DEPRESSION APPLE DUMPLING PUDDING

Heat applesauce in heavy pan. If too thick add a bit of water.

Make dumplings as follows:
2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
4 t. baking powder
1 egg, well beaten
3 T. butter
2/3 c. milk, or enough to make a moist stiff batter

Drop dumplings in applesauce. Cover very closely, cook for 12 minutes. Do not lift cover. SErve hot with fresh cream and sauce ladled over.

The above was actually a supper meal to fill out an otherwise not so ample table.
