We made this delicious recipe last night, because cinnamon and apples just sounded good. Topped with a school of vanilla ice cream (especially homemade) is the best way to serve this.
Basically we created this based on past experiences with other Apple Crisps, but we made it to our liking. It was so good!
Easy Apple Crisp Dessert Recipe
- 8 cups of Granny Smith apples. Thinly sliced and peeled (if desired)
Place the apples in a baking dish. Grab a mixing bowl and put in:
- 1 1/4 c. sugar
- 1 Tbs. all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- dash of salt
Mix together and then sprinkle the mixture over the apples. Drizzle about 1/4 cup of water over the apples.
Using the mixing bowl, add:
- 1 pkg. vanilla cake mix (you can use yellow cake mix too)
- 1 c. quick cooking oats
- 1/3 c. softened butter
- 1/3 c. brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
Mix together and sprinkle over apples again. Take another 1/4 c. water and sprinkle it over the apples.
Cover the dish with tinfoil and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 min. to an hour. If you want to remove the tin foil at the 45 minute mark and allow it to bake under direct heat for 15 minutes, it works pretty well.
Scoop the concoction into bowls while still hot. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Delish!
We made this on the last day of school for the kids, and even though it was already hot outside, this warm delight was awesome and the ice cream helped to cool it off and cool us off too. Enjoy!
