Well it’s officially fall in Central New York, and boy is it feeling like it! Have you gone apple picking yet? What is your favorite kind of apples? Our favorite is the Honey Crisp, it’s so crispy, juicy and sweet! We enjoy Honey Crisp the most for eating. For baking we usually pick out some Cortland too.
There are so many different recipes that use apples, but apple crisp has to be the one I make the most during the fall time! And that’s mostly because it’s quick and easy to make. This recipe will taste better than any other apple crisp you’ve made before and you can be sure to impress!! Trrrust me!
For the Crisp You will need:
1 box of YELLOW cake mix
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup butter or margarine (softened but not melted)
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp Cinnamon
4 large apples or 6 small
Then mix the cake mix, softened 2 sticks of butter, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon in a big bowl until well combined. I use a baking blender (as shown in the photo) to mix this all together and make the crispy topping crumbly. If you don’t have one, I urge you to consider purchasing one, you will use it more often than you’d think for baking, but if you don’t want to, that’s okay too just make it crumble using a fork to break it apart.
Layer the crumble topping on top of the apple slices and bake at 350 degrees for about 25minutes or until the apples are soft and the outside is just lightly browned.
Enjoy warm with some vanilla ice cream or cool whip!
