Pare and core the apples, and then put them in the bottom of a buttered dish. Mix the cream with the flour until smooth, and add a teaspoonful of baking powder, which you will have dissolved well in a tablespoonful of boiling water. Mix again thoroughly, and pour over the Apples. Set in a moderate oven, and bake for one hour. Serve with a Hard, Cream or Brandy Sauce.
