This may seem like no big deal to those of you that bake, but to me, it’s a HUGE deal. I don’t bake. I’m terrible at baking. I can bake all of two things successfully; shortbread cookies and Yorkshire pudding.. BUT, I’ve been saying for a while now that I really would like to learn how to bake and so I have to start somewhere, right?
This turned out super yummy, and the best part was that it was so easy to make.
I guess now I can add a third thing to my ‘can bake’ list.
I used this recipe as a guideline, and just changed a couple of things around, using what I had on hand, hoping it would still turn out, and it did!
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup flour
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (you can add a full cup if you like it sweeter)
- 4 or 5 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- Butter (or coconut oil, margarine etc.)
- Ground cinnamon. It said a tsp but I just sifted a little bit on the top of the mixture once it was in the pan.
Preheat oven to 350° degrees
Once your apples are peeled and sliced arrange them in a baking dish. (The original recipe called to grease the pan but since mine was glass, I didn’t bother with that part.) I used 4 apples but think I would use more next time. (the original recipe called for 2 1/2 cups.)
In a bowl, mix flour, and brown sugar with a whisk or your hands. (You could use white sugar, or more sugar. The original recipe called for a full cup of white sugar but I prefer brown and for things to not be too sweet.)
Sprinkle your mixture on top of your apples in the baking dish and then sprinkle some cinnamon on top. You could alternatively sprinkle the cinnamon on the apples before your mixture, or add the cinnamon to your mixture to mix it in a little better.
Place in the oven on the middle rack and set your timer for 40 minutes. (Or until the top is golden brown.)
Let it cool for a little bit, though, this can be served hot, warm or cool. This is even more delicious topped with ice cream or whipped cream. Mmm
