Quick Apple Recipes to Enjoy this Fall
Apple season is in full swing, and there are so many things you can do with them. Whether you pick your own or visit our country store to buy some, apples are truly delicious this time of year. Sure, they taste great on their own, but it can also be fun to try out some of these recipes! Here’s a look at some quick recipes you can try:
Quick Apple Cake Recipe
Prepare a box of yellow cake mix according to the package directions. Stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and two cups of chopped, fresh apples (make sure you peel the apples before chopping). Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray and pour in the mixture. Place in the center of a preheated 350 Degree oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. This should take about 40 minutes. Call for at least 30 minutes before turning the cake over or cutting into it for serving. You may sprinkle the cake with confectioners’ sugar or ice it with your frosting of choice. Note that the cake has a texture similar to coffee cake.
Easy Apple Cider Martini Recipe
This is a great cocktail for this time of year, and it is simple to make. This recipe makes one cocktail. Add 4 ounces vodka, 6 ounces apple cider, and 1 ounce applejack to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Pour into a martini glass. This is optional, but it is fun to line the rim of the glass with caramel syrup.
Apple Pancakes Recipe
Apple pancakes are simple and fun to make. Just prepare your pancake mix as usual and stir in some cinnamon and freshly chopped apples, to taste. Generally, you’d use one apple for a standard batch that has about eight pancakes, but it’s really up to you. Prepare the pancakes as usual – adding apples doesn’t change your technique at all.
Apple Sauce Recipe
Homemade apple sauce is a real treat, and it is also a great way to enjoy all those fresh apples! To make, peel, core, and chop 4 apples. Add them to a saucepan with 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Bring to a boil and then simmer until the apples are soft. You can mash the apples with a potato masher to break them down a bit. Let cool before serving, or refrigerate, covered, for up to a week.
