Apple Johnny Cake

  •  4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin
  •  1 c water
  •  1 c brown sugar
  •  1 t cinnamon
  •  1/4 t ground cloves
  •  1/4 t allspice
  •  2 pkgs corn bread mix (Jiffy brand or similar)

(The Jiffy mix requires an egg and 1/3 cup milk per pkg, other brands may have different requirements). Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour a 13x9 cake pan. Submerge the apple slices in the water while you are coring and slicing the apples to prevent them from turning brown. When they are all sliced, add the brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves and allspice to the apples and water. In a saucepan, bring the mixture to a boil.

Mix one pkg of the corn bread according to pkg directions and spread it carefully in the bottom of the cake pan. Ladle the apple mixture on top gently (don't clobber the batter!), leaving enough left over to top the cake. Mix the second pkg of corn bread and spread it over the apple filling in the pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is an even golden brown. Spread the remaining apple filling over the top of the cake while it is still warm.
Cut after cooling.
