Apple Grunt, revisited


It's apple season here in West Michigan, so I thought I would pull this old post out of the archives and re-visit it!

Long, long ago, as a young girl growing up, we lived a few doors down from a good Catholic family, with, shall we say, MANY children! Mrs. Thayer was a stay-at-home mom, while my mom was a single parent, working in a factory. One of the advantages of living near a good Catholic family was the many children they had. Mr. & Mrs. T had, I think, 12 of them. matter what your age, you could always find someone to play with at the T's! I had Joanie, my sis had Jean Ann...and unbeknownest to me...
Farmboy had Dave, 2nd oldest of the T's.
Mrs. Thayer baked. My mom did not.
One of Mrs. T's favorites was Apple Grunt.
And whenever Mrs. T baked Apple Grunt, I was there, begging from Joanie. So...Joanie would sneak me a piece of the familys dessert, and I would be happy.
Dave T. was sneakin' Farmboy a piece of the dessert.
Keep in mind...
I did not even know Farmboy existed at this point in time.
He was 3 years older, and lived 6 blocks away, but our paths had never crossed. (tho he says he remembers me as the cute 6th grader from St. James Parochial School...but I kind of doubt it!!)
After we were married, I got the coveted recipe from Mrs. Thayer, and have been making it at least once every winter since then.

Apple Grunt

6-8 apples, peeled, cored, sliced
1 TBL cinnamon
1 cup sugar
3 TBL flour
2 teas. nutmeg
Mix above and place in well buttered 8x8 pan.

In separate bowl:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
dash salt
1 TBL melted butter
1/2 cup milk
dash vanilla
Mix and pour over apples.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Memories are made of this.
Pin It!
