All summer long, I've had my eye out for apple recipes to try this fall. I felt like I missed out on baking with apples last year, and I didn't that to happen again this year.
The church we attend has a potluck every Sunday after church, and I try to bake a cake for it. I get to try new recipes, and I love to bake, so it's a perfect fit for me. But when I came across this recipe for Cinnamon Apple Cupcakes, I decided to make them instead. And they were delicious! These cupcakes even have real apples in them...straight from a can of apple pie filling. :) But they were a nice addition to the cupcakes. I did not use the icing recommended in the recipe; instead I make a buttercream and just added some cinnamon. I got the recipe for the icing from The Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn. John said that these cupcakes are his favorite after Cookie Dough Cupcakes (for which I cannot find a recipe online).
Then I received a recipe in the mail from Kroger for Warm Apple Saute with Ice Cream. It looked delicious, so I gave it a try. And it was! Anything with ice cream is great, right?! One of my children, and I won't tell you which one, didn't want the apples on top of his ice cream, but I told himhe couldn't have any ice cream without apples. He thought the apples were good, so he was happy. I left the dried cranberries out. It was so good that I forgot to take a picture!
Have you tried any new recipes lately? What kinds of apple recipes do you prefer?
