Got Apples?

Amy, over at New Nostalgia has a weekly Tuesday party called, "Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays". This party helps me look around and tackle something that I have been putting off or that needs getting done and I just haven't made the time to do.

We have a lot of apples. We got them clearanced at a local market. They are going to be going bad if I don't use them soon. I just haven't had a lot of time. So, peeling, coring and rough chopping of apples commensed. And using these pretty red apples, gave me the perfect opportunity to join Ruby Tuesdays. This will be my first link up with Mary at "Work of a Poet".

And if this "wing it" dessert that I am calling an Apple Cobbler Cake turns out good, I will link up to these foodie blogs LOL:

It's all about the "using what you have on hand" kind of recipe. At least it was for me.

Here is the recipe.

Apple Cobbler Cake

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1 yellow cake mix

6 large apples

1/4 brown sugar

1 Teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1 cup of butter

1/2 cup walnuts

1/2 cup of milk

Peel, core and chop apples. Place in a pan to simmer. Add 1/4 cup of butter, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Simmer over medium heat until apples are very soft. Put a lid on the pan. Stir occasionally.

In seperate bowl, mix the cake mix and the rest of the butter until mixture is crumbly. Set about 1 & 1/2 cups of this mixture aside.

Once apples are ready, pour and spread evenly in a 9x13 baking pan. Sprinkle the top with the cake mix to cover. Slowly drizzle the 1/2 cup of milk over the top of this.

Take the 1 & 1/2 cup of the cake mixture that you set aside and stir in the other 1/2teaspoon of cinnamon and the walnuts. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the cake.

Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until the top is browned. Let sit for 30 minutes.

You could serve this with whipped topping or ice cream or caramel sauce. But, we loved it just out of the pan! It actually does come out "cakey" instead of the recipes where you do more of a "dump cake" type thing. The milk makes the difference

Okay, now I have to make a pot of dark roast coffee!


  1. Warm apples and crumbs?? Oh my! How could it possibly be bad??!
