The Only Apple Recipes Round Up You’ll Ever Need!

The time for apple picking is upon us! I love this time of year because the air gets crisp and cool and we get to enjoy things like apple cider. It’s also the time of year that our kitchens begin to smell like cinnamon, spice and everything nice!

One of the great things about apple recipes is that they usually include lots of fall spices. Cinnamon and nutmeg in particular. The flavors you get from a tasty apple treats are some of the best. And if you’re looking for a great recipe, you’re sure to find one here.

What apples are best to use for baking?

You can use whatever your favorite apple is. I personally think the tart flavor of Granny Smith apples work well, but Red Delicious, Honeycrisp or Gala apples would work as well. You could also use a mix of a couple different types of apples to give it even more flavor.

What ingredients are often used in apple recipes?

While not all apple recipes is the same ingredients to achieve their flavor, so soft and you will need some combination of these ingredients on hand.

  • Apples of your choice
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Brown sugar
  • Caramel sauce
  • Apple butter

So let’s check out these recipes! There’s a little bit of everything:

  • Cheesecakes
  • Cakes and Cupcakes
