Warm Apple Bake
Warm apple bake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the perfect way to finish a meal. Or if you are like me, skip the ice cream and just savor the apples!
I've got a few apples left from our apple picking days and want to use them up before they sit too long. There are so many wonderful recipes that can be made using apples, but I need something simple. Something the kids can do themselves. They love being able to say, "Look what I made."
The apples right now are delicious and any kind goes well in this recipe. Honeycrisp apples are a favorite in our house. I love apples in a rustic apple tart which sits on a thin pastry crust and of course, who doesn't like good ole fashioned apple pie.
Similar to my homemade honeycrisp apple crisp, this easy recipe allows you to throw it all in a bowl, mix it up and bake it. Instead of a crunchy oatmeal coating on top, cinnamon and brown sugar is added to flour and mixed throughout the dish. It's the perfect recipe kids can make on their own.
Doesn't that looks delicious? Bet you can't wait to sink your spoon into this dish!
My kids barely let me photograph this dessert before it was gone. No kidding!
Warm baked apples nestled in a cinnamon and brown sugar crumble. It doesn't get any better than this. I used honeycrisp apples for this recipe but any kinds would be delicious baked. Toss the slices in a bit of lemon juice to keep them from browning and it adds just the right amount of zing to the dish.
We just can't get enough:)
Warm Apple Bake
Serves 8. Total time: 1 hour
- 4 large apples, peeled, cored and pared into 1-inch slices
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 stick butter, softened
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Peel, core and thickly slice enough apples to fit a 9-inch pie dish or a 11 x 2-inch glass dish. Add lemon juice, sprinkle with cinnamon, and toss to evenly coat. Whisk sugars, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl. Use your hands to get rid of any brown sugar lumps. Cut in the butter and mix until well incorporated. Add the topping to cover the apples and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the apples and topping is golden brown. Let the bake cool until warm. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
