Who wouldn’t like to wake up to the scent of pie in the air and a certain butler baking in your kitchen? *let the fantasies begin*
- 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
- 1 cup golden brown sugar, packed

For Crumb Topping
- 1 cup flour
- ½ cup golden brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into slices
To make filling, mix brown sugar, flour, lemon peel and cinnamon in large bowl. Add apple slices, raisins and vanilla. Toss until well coated. Transfer filling to unbaked crust mounding slightly in center For crumb topping, whisk flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Add butter and rub together well with fingertips until mixture begins to clump together. Sprinkle evenly over pie.
Bake at 375°F on the center rack position in the oven, until apples are tender and crust is golden brown and crisp about 45-50 minutes. Tent pie with foil if browning too quickly. Cool on rack 2 hours. Serve cold or at room temperature with lightly sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Sebastian’s Very Own Cookbook - Blackberry Cornmeal Cake
It’s tea time here at the Black Butler page! When Sebastian prepares tea for the lovely Ciel, he always makes sure to have a delectable dessert waiting to be devoured. This time around, during Season 1 of Episode “His Butler, Capricious”, our favorite butler makes a Blackberry Cornmeal Cake. Truly simple, but amazingly delicious, this cake will make any proper butler proud. Maybe even Sebastian would take a bite!
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
- ½cup yellow cornmeal
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/4 cup for sprinkling
- ½ cup low-fat buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1 tablespoon for skillet
- 2 containers fresh blackberries (5.6 ounces each)
Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar. In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs and melted butter; pour over flour mixture, whisking to combine.
In a 10-inch skillet (preferably cast-iron), heat remaining tablespoon butter in the oven until melted and skillet is hot, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven; swirl to coat bottom of pan. Pour batter into skillet; scatter blackberries on top, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup sugar.
