Apple pie , schmaple pie!

At long last the promised apple pie recipe. As far back as I can remember my mom has been making this apple pie. It is anything but the usual apple crumble or apfel strudel recipe - apparently it is a South African version of the old favorite.
2 Desert spoons butter (not margarine)
half a cup of sugar
2 eggs
half a cup of milk
Cream the above together.
Add one cup of self raising flower
It makes a very sloppy runny dough
Pour in a large pie dish (the dough has to be very shallow in the dish)
Pack a large tin of pie apples on top of the dough and bake for 30 minutes at 200 C (392 F)

Make the syrup:
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup cream
Cook together for 5 minutes
Pour over pie as soon as it comes out of the oven.

Serve warm with cream or vanilla ice cream.

Makes a great tea time treat but also desert
