Last week while I was on vacation I made a goal for myself to do some baking from scratch. Not the cookie dough in a log kind of baking but the flour, baking soda, and sugar kind. It was a first for me and since nothing burned, I was giving myself hi-fives and pats on the back, LOL!
I didn’t get all Martha Stewart or Barefoot Contessa, although that would be awesome but I kept it simple for my first time.
Getting My Bake On
I asked the fam for requests and the hubs asked me to make an apple cobbler. I took the easy way out on this one because I wanted to make it just right. Here’s the recipe:
What You Will Need:
- 1 box of golden butter cake mix
- 1 stick of butter cut in squares
- 2 cans of apple pie filling
- 4 small granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Ready To Make It?
Preheat your oven to 350°. In a large mixing bowl combine the pie filling, sliced apples, sugars, and cinnamon, mix well then set aside.
In another mixing bowl add the cake mix and butter. Use your hands to break up the butter squares and mix with the cake mix. I sprinkled a little cinnamon to give it more flavor.
Spray a 9 in. x 13 in. baking dish then pour the apple mixture in and spread evenly. Then take the cake mix and spread over the mixture. Place it in the center rack of the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Serve it warm with ice cream!
Home Made Rolls
I also baked home made dinner rolls for the first time. Tanya of Eat Laugh Purr shared a recipe for rolls and I had to try it. Low and behold they were a hit on Thanksgiving! Here’s the recipe: Dinner Rolls
