2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 1/4 cup flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine apples, walnuts and sugar. In a separate bowl combine juice and cornstarch until the cornstarch is dissolved. Add to apple mixture and put combined topping in the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan.

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
