Hi! I am looking for relatively easy recipes using apples. I have made apple crisp before so I don't need a recipe for that. Anything else that anyone wants to share would be wonderful. :)

One of the ways I have gotten members of my family to eat more fruit is to offer them Ambrosia for dessert.  You just cut up an apple or two, and combine that with a can of mandarin oranges (drained), some pineapple tidbits (drained), and a sliced banana, and then pour a small can of Coco Lopez (coconut syrup) over the fruit mixture.  A few maraschino cherries adds a bright red, particularly if you've used a yellow-skinned apple instead of a red one.   My sassy grandson calls this Fruit Compost, because the first time I served it to him, he asked its name, and I told him "Fruit Compote."

Remember that one of the ingredients in Applesauce Spice Cake is thick homemade applesauce.

This apple bread recipe from The Puffin Inn bed and breakfast is absolutely the best ever.  Don't let the amount of oil scare you, it really does use this much.  Makes two big loaves.  I leave the nuts out.

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon flour

Mix flour, cinnamon, soda, salt, and baking powder together. Beat eggs and add sugar and oil. Add vanilla and dry ingredients. Stir in apples. Mix walnuts in a teaspoon of flour and add to batter. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
