“This is a super easy, super tasty recipe that my mom used to make all of the time when I was a kid. This is a wonderful dessert (or even breakfast) in the fall--though it is more like a cobbler then a cake (the more apples you use, the more cobbler-like)! Also, I'm not sure that it really is a Swedish recipe as it was shared by a Greek neighbor, but it is still great! Update: I realize that it seems strange, but this recipe really doesn't need extra leavening--I have double-checked a number of times as it seems like it should have some! Though I don't think it would hurt to add some... :-)”
