It’s no secret to anyone who has been reading Kat Treats with any regularity that I love to use apples in cooking and baking. This blog has featured Quick Apple Coffee Cake, Slow-Cooker Maple Apple Oatmeal, and, perhaps the best of the three, An Apple Cake for Rita. While apples are one of my favorite fruits to eat fresh, they also make an incredibly versatile ingredient for different recipes. You may have already seen my roundup of savory apple recipes. But I am always looking for new and different recipes to try or favorite ones to make again.

Pinterest has helped me and the other MyUntangledLife bloggers to start an expansive collection of apple recipes.  You can check it out here.  If you aren’t on Pinterest, this post highlights a few of my favorites.

Smitten Kitchen is always a great source of inspiration for me. Her apple and honey challah has been high on my list of recipes to try. The very first challah I made used another one of her recipes and it was a huge success. I am sure this will be no different.

Apples are great in coffee cakes. In fact, so good in my opinion, that I couldn’t include just one recipe for this post. This Apple-Pecan Coffee Cake from Never Enough Thyme looks luscious. With the combination of apples and pecans how can you really go wrong?

Joy the Baker‘s Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake looks a bit tricky, but definitely worth the effort.

If I were looking for a quick go-to recipe for breakfast, I think I would try these Apple Cinnamon Crumb Muffins from Two Peas and Their Pod. These muffins look like mini coffee cakes!

In searching another trusted source, King Arthur Flour, I found another two recipes that I had to include. Both of these have been pinned by many on Pinterest.  This Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread looks like a great way to start a crisp fall morning. Their Old-Fashioned Apple Slab pie was a great hit for our Fourth of July celebration.

If I need a dessert to bring to a casual party or event this fall, I am temped to make these Caramel Apple Bars from Bake or Break. (In fact, I might just need to find an excuse to make them even if we don’t get an invitation anywhere!) Bake or Break recently had a “Weekly Mix” of apple and pear recipes that all looked pretty tasty, actually.

Of course, apples aren’t only good for sweet recipes. One of my favorite soups for winter is Ina Garten’s Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Curry Condiments. The sweetness of the apple roasted with the squash and onion so nicely complements the curry.  This soup freezes nicely–if it lasts that long.

My hubby’s favorite apple dinner is pork chops with cooked apples. This recipe for Pork Chops with Apples and Pancetta from Giada De Laurentiis looks like a new twist on one of his most-requested dishes.


I hope you find something new and exciting to try this fall too. Now that I have made this list, I am not sure where to begin!
