Apples... the baking kind. Need help. PIOG

I have some apples. I want to make some apple spice bread. or an apple spice cake. I have no prepared icing, but can make some from scratch with little problem.


I am in need of some ideas, recipes, or just a list of ingredients that work really well together. I have a ton of spices. So more than likely anything you could recommend I already have in the house. If not I will go out and buy it.


Anything is appreciated. Also maybe some ideas for an apple spice topping for pancakes and waffles. also maybe a way to add apples to the pancake mix without the apples burning while being cooked in a skillet.

I chopped them up and put them in enough water, boiled them with cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg until they were soft, and then mushed them with a potato masher, and added them to typical pancake mix. 


You can also cut the tops off, and then scoop out some of the middle and fill it with a mix of almond milk, oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon and dried fruit if you have it. Put the tops back on and cook at 350 for 20 mins.

That sounds really good. Thank you. I'll do that.

I typically saute my apples for pancake/waffle toppings.  Slice them, heat a heavy bottomed skillet and add butter (sometimes i add coconut oil), coconut sugar, whatever spices i have (maybe some cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, ginger) throw the apples in and let them cook until tender.  Sometimes i also add some pecans to the mix or walnuts . . .just depends on what i have.

If i'm cooking apples in with the pancakes, i typically chop them up like i would and onion and just mix them inside the batter.

Apple sauce is always a good one to make.  I typically throw cut up raw apples into my blender and add some lemon juice and blend away.

I saw a recipe for red cabbage and apples on Pinterest.  I said i was going to make it but haven't gotten around it it yet.

And they're good to eat just as they are. If i want to use apples for baking i have to move fast because my 5 children DESTROY fresh apples around here. LOL!

These are baking apples. Not red or golden deliscious apples.


My son loves them as much as I do the red deliscious apples.

Thank you for the ideas. I think I know what I will be doing with them either tonight or tomorrow.

Unless I get even more ideas between now and then.

I'm not familiar with "baking apples." What kind do you have?  I bake/cook with any apple (granny smith, honey crisp, crimson, gala, pink lady, mcintosh . . .etc) Just depends on what i happen to get my hands on.

You can core them (peel if you want) and put chopped nuts done in the center where you have cored it, sprinkle with a little cinammon and nutmeg and microwave until tender.  I love this as a snack or dessert.

Bakind apples are anything other than red delicious or golden delicious apples. They are more tart than red or golden delicious apples. They also hold their shape a lot better than red or golden delicious apples, when baked. If you ever have an apple pie turn out to be more like an applesauce pie, it's because you used a red or golden delicious apple.
