This really is a winner. If you like apple pie, you'll love it. Everyone liked it at our Mother's Day dinner and I had a couple of requests for the recipe. As suggested, I served it with vanilla ice cream. I think it would have been even better if it was still warm and will try that next time. I doubled the recipe, using butter instead of margarine, 2 tsps of cinnamon, 2 Macintosh apples and pecans instead of walnuts. It took 35 minutes in a glass 9x13 pan. I think the instructions could use more explanation for newer cooks. I followed the patterns I've learned for similar recipes, creaming the butter and sugar with a hand mixer, then adding the eggs, then the dry ingredients with 1/2 of the floor, incorporating it well before adding the rest of the flour, finally stirring in the nuts and apples. The consistency is like a chocolate chip cookie dough (minus the choc chips) with apples mixed in. It's really easy to throw together and is a nice change from my other dessert recipes.
These were so delicious! I was doubly impressed by how quick and easy it was to mix up the batter. Start to finish, including chopping the apple, took about 10 minutes. I wasn't quite sure what to look for in terms of doneness. After 35 minutes it was brown, but I wasn't sure if it was from the cinnamon. I stuck the middle several times with a toothpick and it came out clean, so I took it out. When served, it tasted cake like which was delightful! I served it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. My mom said I definitely needed to make this recipe a lot more and my dad gave it 5 stars...quite a compliment! Thanks for posting this recipe!
My DD, who ONLY eats desserts with chocolate, asked for thirds. 'Nuff said!
Fast, easy and delicious! Only took about 18 minutes for 9x9 pan at 350 degrees. One medium size Gala apple was just about 1 cup chopped.
I have made these several times now, and all I can say is these things are addicting! Don't know what happened when others made them, but they came out very much like brownies for me using an 8x8" pan. I can imagine a 9x13" made them way too thin and crispy. They are perfect now! I added more nuts than called for and used 2 big juicy apples and just threw them in. Worked great. We will be making these again real soon. We had them covered with vanilla ice cream, and they were awesome!
I made these this afternoon (I had a couple of apples that needed to be cooked with or thrown out next week). Mine came out more like a cake (which is fine) but I was expecting a dense texture. I left out the nuts (my kids school is nut free and wanted them to be able to take them). I swapped marg. for butter - I am going to play with this recipe, but a great start for what I'm after, thanks for posting.
Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
It's very sweet. A small piece is more than enough.
Very good.. I used butter which made it very rich but I loved how it was so quick and easy to put together! I also used a mcintosh apple
I have these baking in the oven right now, and have never made them before. They smell amazing! I mixed these up with the help of my 2 and 4 year old. I will most likely not rate these out of fairness, since I had to make a major substitution. I have had to quit using butter due to a milk protein intolerance in my nursing infant. I substituted coconut oil for the butter, which I do in all types of recipes with fantastic results. It does change the consistency of the final product though. The melting point of coconut oil is 85 degrees, so when I mixed in the eggs (I should have known to wait for them to reach room temp) the batter seized up. I am sure they will turn out delicious but more dense than normal. I will update later when we eat them! Made them for A week during Mornings with Mommy!
