“This is the most delicious dessert, and easy to put together, a great ending to any meal. This can also be made with apples, but use a firm apple such as Granny Smith for this recipe. I usually stick this in the oven, and bake it as we are having dinner, and serve it with ice cream as a yummy!”

  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, white sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
