If you ask us, fall desserts are always in season. But these served-warm treats -- boasting pumpkin, chocolate, apple, and more -- are just right for a crisp autumn night. Whether the leaves are starting to turn or not, one (or two!) of these cozy desserts is sure to hit the spot.


2 - medium baking apples
1/3 - cup butter, melted
1 2/3 - cups packed dark brown sugar
1 - cup apple butter
2 - eggs
2 - teaspoons vanilla
1 2/3 - cups all-purpose flour
1 - teaspoon baking powder
1 - teaspoon baking soda
1/4 - teaspoon salt
1 - cup dried apples, finely chopped
Maple Icing

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. Peel, core, and coarsely shred one of the apples. Thinly slice remaining apple, removing seeds; cover and set apples aside. In a large bowl whisk together the butter, brown sugar, apple butter, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; whisk until combined. Fold in dried and fresh shredded apple. Spread batter into prepared pan. Arrange apple slices over batter.

Bake about 40 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack. Spoon Maple Icing over hot cake; spread evenly, using a pastry brush if necessary. Cool completely. Dust with apple pie spice or ground cinnamon.
