Our clients are so creative—not just when it comes to fundraising, but also in the kitchen. If you’re looking for something new to add to your holiday table, try one of these fab recipes. How sweet it is!

Andrea Bieling from EMILY’s List shared this delightful recipe for a tasty treat for the holidays.

Apple Crisp
3 or 4 medium apples, peeled, cored & sliced
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 375. Grease square 8″ pan. Place apple slices in pan in two layers. Mix remaining ingredients with a pastry blender. Sprinkle over apples. Bake 25 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is brown.

For all you chocolate lovers, here’s a delicious recipe from Kent Anderson at the League of Conservation Donors.

Chocolate Stout Bundt Cake from the Food Network’s Marcela Valladolid

Kent says: For dark beer lovers, chocolate lovers, and everyone in between, this cake is simply amazing. It smells amazing while you heat the beer, butter, and chocolate together, and it smells great while you cook it. I make it several times a year, and it’s one of my most requested recipes.

You can find the recipe here.

Kent also provided a few words of wisdom:

  • Do not underestimate the importance of greasing and powdering the Bundt pan so the cake comes come out easily and cleanly. It’s hard to go overboard on this.
  • Find the darkest, dreamiest stout you can think of. I love the ones brewed with coffee, chocolate, or licorice or those that have a great woody taste from being barrel aged.
  • I usually skip the powdered sugar for garnish and use sour cream for the glaze instead of crema.
  • Beware of the batter! This is by far the best cake batter I’ve ever tasted, and it’s SO rich you might not have room for cake after. You’ve been warned!
