Apples, part deux

MoFo

Hello again!

I am back with a few more apples, and then I shall move on to something else for vegan MoFo! The other night, I was craving something warm and satisfying for dessert. There was nothing in the house, but a chocolate bar, and some soy ice cream. Neither seemed to fit the bill, so I went into the kitchen and looked around for something to make. I had oats (as always), flour, maple syrup, cane sugar, berries, and apples. Sounded like something warm and satisfying was right around the corner.

Enter: Fall Crisp

Fall Crisp

This was an impromptu dessert, but super yummy, had I not forgotten to half the canola oil… I loosely based the crisp off The Joy of Vegan Baking, which is one of my most favorite cookbooks, and Compassionate Cooks was really what helped me go, stay, and love being a vegan.. Anyway, SO since it was just me and Nic (my boyfriend), I halved the recipe and made it in a small cast iron skillet. Everything was great, but the topping (which is usually my absolute favorite) was grainy.. too wet.. so I was doing a little thinking.. and a lightbulb went off.. I halved everything, BUT the oil. MoFO! It still tasted yummy.. but honestly when does fat not taste yummy? ┬áSo I won’t share the recipe here, but I omitted the nuts, added coconut to the top, and doubled the oil. That last part though, I would probably skip that gem of wisdom. Let’s see…

Mixing in the cast iron

I didn’t really follow the filling recipe, just threw together some frozen berries, apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, lemon juice, and mixed it all up in its own serving dish (I told you it was impromptu.. I didn’t want dishes either!!) So mix, mix, mix…

Topping

I had the toaster oven set to 350*, threw it in for about 40 minutes and out came satisfaction in a skillet… I am so glad it is cold outside, gives me a reason to turn on the (toaster) oven!!! Happy Baking!
