Mountain Pie


I'm not sure why it's called this, but we had this a lot when I was growing up. It's good with canned peaches, fruit cocktail... and probably just about any other kind of fruit that comes in a can!

MOUNTAIN PIE

Melt 3/4 stick of butter or margarine in a baking dish or pan.

Mix a batter of:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
Pour the batter over the butter in the baking dish.

Pour a 16-20 oz. can of fruit (including juice) over the batter.

Bake at 350F until well browned, approximately 45 minutes.

It's called mountain pie because it's from the mountains of Appalachia. And you forgot to say to serve it in a bowl with milk poured over it. Mmmmmmm.....

That's because I like it with a scoop of ice cream! ;)

Although it's so rich that ice cream is often too much... pouring milk over it is probably best.
