A little lady down the street was selling organic apples that cost not much more then pocket money for a kid in the 80's :). So I used her apples to make this recipe. The vanilla cake mix I used was a Greens brand, (couldn't find a shop brand one). I used shredded coconuts and then kept to the recipe. I brought this slice to a family function and everyone enjoyed it. I think I overcooked the base a little so it was very crispy but not teeth breaking. The sour cream with the apple turned out really well. Thanks Mummamills for a great and easy recipe.
Made for Australia/NZ Swap #22 The last "pie" I made. was as a newly-wed, 1/2 century ago. Since then, Mrs Smith has been my pie chef. I truly enjoyed making and eating this !! DH is not so fond of sour cream (and I had full strength) but I thought it was wonderful! Perhaps my pie dish was smaller, but next time I will make the "crust" thinner -- was like a BIG hard cookie ! Thanks mummamills. Not being certain of a "Moderate" oven, I baked at 350 degrees F.- 27 minutes for the crust, then 17 minutes for the final bake. I also used a 21 ounce can of pie apples. I think the DDs and DGKs will like.
Great recipe mummamills. I made this slice gluten-free by using a gluten-free cake mix (Basco brand). Used a large can of sweetened sliced pie apples. Turned out great. Very similar to a recipe in the "4 Ingredients" cookbook, only they dont use the cinnamon on top. I also think this slice improves in a day or so
Oh yum I have made APPLE SLICE for the Zaar recipe swap # 17, 2008. It is to die for with a creamy topping . Bite through the soft creamy top, through the slightly crunchy apples, and the the cakey/biscuit like base. Such a wonderful variety of different textures. This is in no way boring. Thanks for a great recipe, that will be making it's dreamy appearance on the table in a couple of days at my sons 7th birthday :-)
5 for easy to make, but I'll definitely be using real apples next time (I was in a rush this time). Thanks for the great recipe!
Nice crunchy base and no taste is overpowering all meld well together. I cooked some granny smiths using Apple Pie Filling. With only 4 of us I will be freezing the left overs for later. Thank you mummamills for a new dessert recipe. 12th September 2007 - just used the last of the frozen dessert and it tasted as delicious as the first.
Ummm can I say just I didnt believe this recipe either mummamills.... BUT This was fantstic, and talk about easy!! I must admit I am not a big sour cream fan, but I love these. The sweetness of the apples goes well with the sour cream taste, and the two compliment each other so well. A big hit here, and will be making again when I need an easy and tasty slice.
Beautiful! I used 2x300ml containers of sour cream over this, and an 800g tin of pie apple. Easy and everyone loves this.
I absolutely love this recipe! I use about 1kg of apples before peeling - any variety will do. I peel and slice the apples then boil them with about 1 1/2c. water and 1/2 c. sugar till you achieve the correct softness. Drain the apples and you are on your way. I have now made this recipe about 4 times and it is requested much more often! It takes a bit of time to prep the apples and then cook, but I recommend fresh ingredients whenever you can! Enjoy and thanks to Mummamills for this fabulous share.
