Make Seasonal Apple Recipes

When I think of fall I always think of crisp air, changing colors and my favorite fall recipes. I particularly love fixing apple desserts this time of the year. On a crisp fall day I enjoy the smell of these dishes baking and the taste of them warm and fresh.

Apple crumb

  • 4 c. apples (diced)
  • 3/4 c. white sugar
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter (melted)
  • 3/4 c. and 1 T. flour (divided)
  • 1/4 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 T. cinnamon
  • 1 c. quick oats
  • pinch of salt

Butter a baking dish (about a 8″ x 8″ size). First, you need to mix your apples, white sugar, 1 T. flour, salt and cinnamon together in a bowl. Pour them into the buttered baking dish. Next, combine the butter, brown sugar, oats and cream them together. Then add the rest of the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Bake for 30 minutes at 350⁰ F. This dish is excellent served warm and with vanilla ice cream.

Apple cake

  • 1/2 c. butter (softened)
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 t. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 6 c. apples (peeled and diced)

Apple cake sauce

  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream

In a large mixing bowl use a hand mixer to combine the butter, sugar and vanilla and cream together. Add the eggs to this mixture. In a separate bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Slowly add this dry mixture to the moist ingredients and stir well. Finally add the apples and stir. Pour this mixture into a greased 9″ x 13″ baking dish. Bake 40-45 minutes at 350⁰. Let cool for about 30 minutes.

While the cake is cooling you can prepare the sauce. In a sauce pan combine the brown sugar and butter. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted, then slowly add the heavy whipping cream. Bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and drizzle over the cake. This will make the cake really moist so if you prefer you can pour the sauce over each individual piece of cake instead of the entire cake all at once. This cake is also excellent with vanilla ice cream.

Hope you enjoy!
