2 cups all-purpose flour (add more if necessary)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine
2⁄3 cup water
4 apples, shredded
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) margarine
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, margarine and water in a large bowl.
Mix well. Add additional flour gradually if dough is too moist and hard to work with.
To make the filling, combine shredded apples, sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Set aside.
To assemble and bake:
Roll dough into a 11x17-inch rectangle. Spread the apple mixture evenly over the dough. Roll the dough, from the long end, jelly roll style. Slice the roll into 1-inch slices. Place the apple buns close together into two 9 inch round glass baking dishes.
Prepare the syrup. Combine water, sugar, brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon in a small pot. Stir over low heat until all ingredients are melted. Pour syrup over apple buns.
Preheat oven to 350° F. Bake 1 hour. Serve warm.
