Good apples and a few added touches are what really make this cake!

Forget about dump cakes being boring or ho-hum, this cake is REALLY good and by good I mean FANTASTC! This cake is warm apples, caramel, chocolate and yummy cinnamon cake all in one…lots of wonderful fall flavors happening here. :)

There’s just something about a warm caramel apple dessert with ice cream melting on top that is VERY hard to resist, and don’t forget the caramel drizzle! Just a little bit of caramel drizzle makes this dessert wonderful!

This dessert is perfect as the apples start to ripen and those wonderful fall flavors are everywhere! But really this would be a good dessert any time of year.

Today I share with you my Caramel Apple Easy Cake…enjoy my friends!

My Chocolate Caramel Apple Pouches are my own spin on making a seasonal fruit dessert that the whole family will eat, and en

These little pouches of yumminess are amazing! All the wonderful flavors of apple pie without having a whole pie to deal with. It’s the best of both worlds with these scrumptious little pouches!

Sometimes I peel my apples, but sometimes I don’t. It just depends on what I’m making. Today I didn’t peel my apples. When making a regular size apple pie, I always peel my apples.

Moving on, be sure to always wash and dry your apples. But as far as peeling goes, that depends on your personal preference. There are a lot of vitamins and nutrients, not to mention fiber in the peel. Just saying...something to consider. :)

Welcome to my Chocolate Caramel Apple Pouches!

It sure feel good to be at the beginning of a new year, but I have to say the cold can make life challenging. Of course not everyone lives in a cold-weather state, but this Winter seems to keep sharing the cold! So a little warm comfort food seems to be in order here.

Today I prepared for you what I think is the perfect cold weather  dessert for you family and friends…my Skillet Baked Caramel Apple Dessert.

Being that it is Winter, and so much of the country is experiencing some really cold weather right now I wanted to develop a dessert that you can throw together in very little time. The kids love it served warm with a scoop of ice cream and delicious warm caramel sauce drizzled across the top. My Skillet Baked Caramel Apple Dessert is such a nice way to finish off the meal, especially on a cold night!

Hope you enjoy!

Fresh and warm these Apple Pie Crescent Bundles are absolutely wonderful! Today, I am showing you how I make this simple finger food dessert and from there you can decide how fancy you want to get.

The nice thing about these little bundles is that they’re so easy to do on short notice! Not only that, who doesn’t love a little bundle of something yummy wrapped up nice and neat, served in the middle of a warm crescent? Seriously!

These little bundles are a wonderful finger food for parties! Or at home you can serve them warm with a nice bowl of ice cream, or my favorite way with some wonderful dipping sauce.

Ready to make some Apple Pie Crescent Bundles?    2014-11-13_3664 Don’t let the tiny spots on the apples fool you! These apples are all-natural and wonderful! FYI – often times when apples are grown without pesticides or sprays they may have spots, there’s nothing wrong with that.

As I so often do, I chose to leave the peel on because we like them that way. Feel free to peel them if you want to. :) 2014-11-13_3683 When you take these out of the oven, please give them a couple of minutes to cool! The cinnamon sugar mixture inside gets very hot so please let them cool a bit first!  2014-11-13_3685 As you can see, I’m a big fan of the drizzle. Love the drizzle!

This is how I generally serve my Apple Pie Crescent Pie Bundles when we’re at the table and have them for dessert.

Single-Serving Apple Pie Bowls

Treat yourself to a taste of Fall with my Single-Serving Apple Pie Bowls! No need to make a whole apple pie. :)

Be sure to follow me on Pinterest!   

Single-Serving Apple Pie Bowls 308

Fall flavors really are some of the very best flavors – I love fall baking!

Today I bring you my Single-Serving Apple Pie Bowls. These little bowls are similar to a dessert I did last Fall called Apple (Pie) Flower Bowls. The concept is the same, just done with a fun little twist.

I felt like changing things up a bit today, so I came up with my Single-Serving Apple Pie Bowls. The flavors going on in these little delights are wonderful!

The idea behind these bowls is that you have a personal dessert for each person that isn’t too large, without having a lot of extra dessert hanging around the house.

My Singe-Serving Apple Pie Bowls aren’t exactly pie, and they definitely are not a traditional recipe. Simply put, they’re a great dessert with a wonderful golden brown crust.

Why a crust? Because you just gotta have a golden brown crust! :)

That wonderful deep dark brown color comes from the addition of the toffee chips. They add sort of a warm caramel flavored something special without being too much.

Applesauce, cinnamon, and muffins are always a winning combination! According to my tasters (myself included) this one is a winning combination, especially with just the right amount of my vanilla glaze on top!

Honestly, what makes this muffin cake so moist and wonderful is the applesauce. Like they say, if you want a great recipe start with great ingredients!

Trust me when I say, this has nothing to do with price! We’re talking about good, quality applesauce that you normally enjoy as is!

AMC_2613

For this recipe, I started off with Taste of Home’s Applesauce Muffin Recipe. However, I wanted to make this even more special so I added a light crumble layer and a little vanilla glaze. A blogger has to play, right?

AMC_2627

This applesauce muffin cake is amazingly delicious! The recipe I started with is delicious by itself, but after adding the light crumble layer and the vanilla glaze it just takes the muffin cake to a whole new level of wonderful!

If you don’t eat the entire muffin cake at one time that’s just fine, it will keep. However, I do strongly recommend that if you reheat the cake one slice at a time, reheat in the microwave as desired, then add the glaze.
