Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Apple Cobbler Cake

What's better than an easy dessert? One with apples, that's what! This is a great little treat when you need something fast. It can be easily doubled to feed more people but this small amount was great for us. I served ours with caramel sauce because I was out of vanilla ice cream but I can only imagine what this would have tasted like with a cold scoop of ice cream melting down into the nooks and crannies. Guess that's a good excuse to make it again....right?

Apple Cobbler Cake

4 - 5 large apples ~ peeled and sliced (I used Gala apples)
1 1/4 cups + 2 tablespoons sugar ~ divided use
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup butter ~ softened
2 eggs
1 cups flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9x9 inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Place apples into prepared pan.

In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of the sugar and the cinnamon. Sprinkle half over apples.

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and remaining 1 cup of sugar.

Add eggs and flour and mix well.

Pour mixture over apples and spread to cover apples.

Sprinkle remaining cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top of the batter.

Bake for an 60 - 70 minutes.

Serve hot or cold....or try it with ice cream!
