Baked Apple Dessert

"We all have had Apple Cobblers.....and probably all have a great recipe to use. But I thought Id post this one that I use now and then. I like it because I don't have to fuss alot. When I'm getting last minute company or I want a quick dessert that I know everyone would like , this fits perfectly. Warm and topped with ice cream and nobody is complaining as it goes down. I have even used canned pie apples........but I really like this with fresh. It doesn't take that long to peel and slice a bunch up. And I always seem to have some sort of cake mix on hand so this goes together real easy.

 I must confess I have eaten this for breakfast the next day. In fact it seems no one can stay away from this once its made."

 Baked Apple Dessert 10-12 servings

  • 6 tart apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 2 tb. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tb. cinnamon
  • 1 (18.5oz.) pkg. yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick butter (1/2c.), melted
  • 1 c. chopped walnuts (I happen to love pecans with this too)
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 in. baking dish. Combine apples, lemon juice and 1 tb. cinnamon in a lg. bowl and toss well. Spoon evenly into baking dish. Sprinkle cake mix over apples, patting gently. Dust with remaining cinnamon and drizzle melted butter evenly over top. Sprinkle with nuts. Cover with foil and bake till apples begin to bubble, about 15-20min. Uncover and continue baking until top is browned and apples are tender, about 30min. Serve warm or chilled , topped with vanilla ice cream.

Difficult to resist to an apple dessert like this. Apples are always so good in cakes.
