This Easy Applesauce is made in one saucepan in less than 20 minutes on the stove, and has incredible cinnamon apple flavor.
Whipped? Or a bit chunky? How do you like your applesauce?
If you’re a person who loves to cook like I do, you might even find yourself feeling cheated after making this recipe. You’ll be like “ Whaaaat? What do you mean it’s over?”
Which is why you might like to grab your blender or your mixer, throw your newly made, super-fast applesauce into it, and zizz it into a frenzy, just so you can spend more time in the kitchen. 🙂
Well then… this is definitely the recipe for you. 🙂 And, you will love the flavor from this Easy Applesauce, because it’s going to remind you of all things fall. In fact, if you close your eyes while eating it, you may even be able to imagine the leaves falling and the colors changing, while your tart little green apples turn a pretty, ripe red. Perfect for picking!
If you remember, when I made this Slow Cooker Cinnamon Applesauce last year, it took hours to make. Which is great if you want your house to smell good all day long. But, what that really means is, your belly will be grumbling waiting for that applesauce to get done.
And, when your slow cooker finally dings 4-5 hours later, you’ll be so ravenous, you’ll whip off the lid and just start shoving your spoon in there, like a crazy person with no sense. At least that is what happened at my house.
With this recipe, you can be much more civilized, because it’ll be ready in just 20 minutes. 🙂
And, if you want to whip it, and whip it good 🙂 you’ll be looking at maybe 25 minutes. An, extra 5 minutes for a good whipping? Hmmm. Decisions.
But, look how butter smooth and soft! It’s like baby food. 🙂

p.s. if you don’t have 16 apples (and don’t want the expense of buying them), feel free to cut the recipe in half or fourths!
