Apple Dessert

It looks like, I am back to using apples, in my baking.  I can't resist them.  This time, I needed one cup's worth but I cut up more than that.  What could I do with them?  Of course, eat them.


Apple Bars

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Hazelnut oil or Canola oil
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup apples - peeled, cored and finely diced
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Grease and flour 8x8 inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, mix melted butter with sugar and egg. Mix in flour, baking soda, and cinnamon, and then stir in apple and walnuts. 
Spread batter into prepared pan.

Bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until a small knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

The knife came out, perfectly clean, but the middle of the cake did not look done.  I put it back for four minutes, just to make sure and it turned out OK.  I don't think that you have to use the extra time though.  It looked the same way with the additional minutes.


Cut into squares or bars.

This is more like a dessert than bars.  We were scooping it up and loving it.

  6. How creative - I love the idea of apples and bars in the same dessert. And hazelnut oil - never heard of this before...
