Digging around in Grandma’s recipe box again, I’ve found so many new recipes to try, and what better way to piece things together and learn even more in the kitchen? Plus I never know what notes I may find, written by her hand. This Apple Quickie is one of the best apple crisp recipes I’ve ever tried. Grandma has written on the recipe, “Tastes like old fashioned apple crisp.”
Indeed it tastes delicious. It has such a sweet flavor, and one of the nice things about it is that it doesn’t require a ton of ingredients. The hardest part about this recipe is peeling and slicing the apples. It’s definitely a recipe I’ll be making again and again.
I hope you enjoy!
- 2 qt. canned apples or cooked apples
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- Sprinkle of Allspice
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1/2 box yellow cake mix
- Use canned or freshly cooked, sliced apples (I chose to use fresh apples, since they're in season); in the case of fresh apples, core, peel, and slice. Arrange apple slices in buttered 8x8x2 pan. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Dot with butter. Sprinkle with cake mix, direct from box. Pierce with fork so juice can bubble up through.
- Bake in a moderate oven at 375° for about 30 minutes. Serve while warm with whipped topping, if desired. Enjoy!
