Apple pie baking with kids

Apple Crunch

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Toss together in a bowl:

  • 4-5 peeled apples, cut into 1/4' slices

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Place the apple mixture in a pie pan or 8” x 8” casserole dish.

With a pastry cutter or two knives cut together:

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats

  • 3/4 flour

Grease and flour a 6” cake pan.


  • 1 SproutCake Mix

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1/4 cup butter

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 peeled and cut up medium apple


  1. Combine all the above ingredients except the apples in a bowl and whisk together until the batter is smooth. This should take about two minutes.

  2. Fold in the cut up apples.

  3. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for 30 minutes.

  4. Test the cake for doneness by inserting a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, it is done. If not, bake for two more minutes at a time until it is done.

(This is apple cake is good with pre-made cream cheese icing, found in the baking aisles of most grocery stores. It is also good with the following icing, but an adult should make it or be in direct supervision. The ingredients get hot!!!)

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 1/2 tablespoon of milk

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
