Here's a somewhat simplified version of a German recipe, posted as I prepare myself fot Zaar's World Tour 4!
- 1⁄4 cup margarine, softened
- 18 1⁄2 ounces yellow cake mix
- 1⁄2 cup flaked coconut
- 4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into wedges
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup sour cream
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, then grease & flour a 13"x9" baking dish.
- In a medium bowl, combine margarine, cake mix & coconut until crumbly.
- Cover the bottom of prepared baking dish with this mixture, spreading evenly & patting down, building up edges to form a crust.
- Place apple wedges on top, arranging them evenly.
- Combine cinnamon & sugar, & sprinkle this mixture over apples.
- In a small bowl, combine sour cream & egg, then drizzle this mixture on top of cinnamon/sugar mixture.
- Bake for 35 minutes or until apples are tender & edges are golden.
- Remove from oven, cool slightly & enjoy!.
A very simple recipe, but the results were outstanding. I only used 1/4 cup of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon. The crust came out real good, was not too sweet, and all agreed that this was definately a top 10 for the year. Great topping too. Made for Zaar Stars.
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Wow! This was easy to make, and tastes wonderful! My hubby says this is up there at the top with his favorite apple desserts. That's saying a lot since he loves his apples! Made for ZWT6
tagged for Comfort Cafe 2009. I KNEW this would be good as it is from Sydney Mike. Now I have to explain how dinner's dessert is missing a piece or two. This is great and from a cake mix makes it even better! Mike this is absolutely wonderful and so easy to put together with ingredients most of us have in the house. I used a Pillsbury yellow cake mix with the pudding in it. I did reduce the sugar to 1/4 c plus a smidgeon. to try and reduce sugar intake. It is great! Not too sweet and not too tart. DH is going to love this one as he loves apples and apple desserts! Thank you!!! Saved to favorites! Connie
