Classic Caramel Apples

Classic Caramel Apples

It is almost impossible to resist a good caramel apple. Not only are they stunning to look at, but the combination of slightly salty, buttery caramel with sweet-tart juicy apples is pretty close to perfect. I’ve worked on making a good caramel apple recipe for a long time. It is tempting just to use store bought caramels (good quality, of course!) because they are very ... Read More »

Breton Apple Cake

Apple Cake

Most recipes tell you what a particular dish is – vanilla cake, chocolate chip cookies, etc – but some also give you a little more information by telling you about where that recipe is from. A New York-Style Cheesecake is a great example of this, and this dense and creamy type of cheesecake is instantly recognizable. Some recipes, however, are associated with different places and ...

Apple Cider Bread Pudding

Apple Cider Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is an easy to make, comfort food kind of dessert that is always a good choice on a cool day. The dish is basically just bread cubes soaked in a sweetened mixture of milk and eggs, then baked – not entirely unlike like a big dish of french toast, although it is usually served for dessert, not breakfast. The best thing about bread ... Read More »

Apple Walnut Muffins

Apple Walnut Muffins

You can chop up apples and add them to a muffin batter if you want some apple muffins. I’ve done this on occasion, usually when I want the apples to really stand apart from the rest of the muffin. But this is also the problem with this method, because the chunks of apple don’t necessarily mesh well with the rest of the muffin and you ... Read More »

Here, I baked some diced apples into a Maple Apple Ginger Cake that is spiced with fresh ginger and lots of delicious maple syrup. Maple syrup is a lovely flavoring to use in cakes, especially during the fall. It adds sweetness and also ... Read More »

Whole Grain Apple Crisp

Whole Grain Apple Crisp

Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts no matter what time of the year it is, but when fall rolls around I start to move it up in the rotation. But, even though I can be quick with a crust, apple pies do take a little bit of time to put together when you start to compare them to other apple desserts, including apple ... Read More »

Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

Apples are often associated with fall, but apple trees are often ripe with fruit early into summer (depending on climate and weather conditions) and when you know someone with an apple tree who generous enough to save some for you to bake with, you can’t say no just because apples aren’t quite as “summery” as strawberries are. Apples are delicious all year round and this ... Read More »

Apple Bourbon Bread Pudding

Apple Bourbon Bread Pudding

Apples are not the first fruit I think of to go into bread pudding. For some reason, things like cherries, raspberries and especially various dried fruits seem like more obvious choices to me, despite the popularity of the apple as a baking fruit. They are softer and, in the case of dried fruit, more absorbent. Both seem like better matches for a custardy and tender ... Read More »
