I made this for breakfast when my in-laws were in town for a visit. Chris made pancakes, and we ate it both as a topping for pancakes and separately as applesauce. Mmmm. This recipe comes from my 1930's cookbook. My apologies for the images being a little fuzzy. I was too excited to try this to focus well!
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 T. flour
1/3 c. water
2 apples, sliced
Mix brown sugar, flour and water in sauce pan. Add apples, and cook till it bubbles. Serve hot.
So simple! It will look as though there is not enough sauce for the apples, but never fear! The apples will cook down and help to make their own sauce. Stir occasionally and you'll be fine. Enjoy!
