Apple Snack

I stumbled upon OnceAMonthMom on Pinterest & liked the idea of occasional bulk cooking, so thought I’d give these apple snacks a go.

I only made half the mix as I didn’t have enough apples.  As usual DD2 (1.4) scoffed it down, but DD1 (3.10) wasn’t so keen – apparently it was too “fall-aparty” – perhaps I should have chopped the apples smaller?

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups unpeeled, cored apples
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9X13 baking pan.
  2. Chop apples into small pieces and combine with sugar in a large bowl.  Stir until evenly mixed, set aside.
  3. Combine oil, eggs, and vanilla in small bowl.
  4. In another large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and cinnamon.
  5. Combine egg and flour mixtures until evenly missed, then slowly add to apples.
  6. Stir until well combined. Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking pan. Bake 25-30 min or until cake test done. Cool before serving.

Freezing Directions:

  1. Follow directions above, cooking cake completely.
  2. Cut into 12 squares and transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  3. Flash Freeze for 1 hour. Divide among indicated number of gallon freezer bags.

To Serve:

  1. Remove desired amount of cake pieces, thaw on counter 1 hour.
  2. Warm for 10 sec in microwave if desired.

    I tried this, but it was rather bland. I think the next time I’ll try putting the sugar into the egg/ oil mixture to make sure the sugar is equally distributed throughout. I might also add a little salt.
