#52 Ulla Pie

My friend Ulla is one of the best bakers I know and this is one of my favorite recipes she has given me.  I don't know what the real name of the recipe is but at our house it's "Ulla Pie" even though it's more of a cake.  It can be made with apples or berries or both.  Hmmm, I wonder what this would be like with peaches?

1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 scant cup milk

Grease pie pan and sprinkle with flour.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat softened butter with sugar until well mixed.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing between each addition.  Stir the flour and baking powder together and then add to other ingredients.  Mix together briefly and add milk.  Beat until well mixed.  Batter will be thick and delicious

Spread dough in to pie pan. and smooth out evenly.
Skin and slice 1 1/2 to 2 apples and arrange on dough.  Sprinkle top with a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar (mixed together) OR use blueberries and raspberries or plain blueberries.  Sprinkle top of berries with plain sugar.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until center comes out clean when poked with a fork.
(I tried frozen blueberries for the first time in my blueberry pie and it needed a little extra baking but was still fabulous)
