2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour

FILLING
 4 cups chopped and cored Granny Smith apples
2 teaspoons cinnamon

MAPLE GLAZE BANANA BREAD by Olivia
Original recipe from www.alattefood.com

Ingredients

Bread
1/2 c butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 eggs
2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3-4 medium or large bananas
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Maple Glaze
1/4 c butter
1/2 c pure maple syrup
1 c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350. Grease one 9x5 pan or two 8x4 pans. In a small bowl, mash bananas, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and beat until mixed. To the wet ingredients, sift in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until just combined. Pour in mashed bananas, and mix until combined. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes (for two 8x4 pans) or until cake tester comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs stuck to it. If using one 9x5 pan, bake at 350 for 30 minutes; then lower the temp to 325 and bake for 15-20 or until cake tester comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs stuck to it. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Move to a wire cooling rack.

Glaze
Melt butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon over low heat. Once melted together, pull off the heat. Sift in powdered sugar, and whisk until fully combined. Allow to cool for 8-10 minutes so the glaze can thicken. Once the glaze has thickened, give it a quick stir and pour it over the breads. Allow the glaze to harden completely before cutting into slices.

Notes
Can be stored in an air tight container at room temperature or in the fridge.

PUMPKIN COFFEE CAKE WITH BROWN SUGAR GLAZE by Brooklyn
Original recipe from www.cleverhousewife.com

INGREDIENTS
⅓ cups water 1 can pureed pumpkin, 15 oz
2 eggs
1 Tbs vanilla extract
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 box yellow cake mix, 18 oz
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup brown sugar, divided
½ cup flour
4 Tbs butter, melted
¼ cups granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup heavy whipping cream

INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 350°.
In a large bowl, mix together the water, pumpkin, eggs, 1 Tablespoon of vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice, until well combined. Add the cake mix and baking soda and mix until just combined. Grease a 9×13 pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray, and pour batter into pan. In a small bowl, mix together ½ cup of brown sugar, flour and melted butter. Use your fingers to sprinkle over the top of the cake. Bake cake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. While the cake is baking, start preparing your glaze. Combine the other ½ cup brown sugar, granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and heavy cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir until all sugar is dissolved. This shouldn't take very long. When cake is finished baking, poke holes in the top with a toothpick. Pour glaze over the cake. It should seep into the holes and make for a nice sticky, sweet topping. Serve cake warm or at room temperature.

PUMPKIN OAT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES by Courtney
Original recipe from www.cookingclassy.com

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups packed light-brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin puree
1 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger for 30 seconds, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy (occasionally stop and scrape down sides and bottom of bowl throughout entire mixing process). Blend in egg then blend in vanilla extract and pumpkin puree. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Mix in chocolate chips and pecans (if you want some chocolate to show through set some aside to press into tops before baking). Let batter rest 5 - 10 minutes (this just gives the oats some time to absorb the liquids so batter isn't so sticky and cookies don't spread so much). Scoop dough out 2 Tbsp at a time (I used a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop, which I recommend using for evenly shaped cookies and fill it heaping), and drop onto Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheets, spacing cookies 2-inches apart. Bake in preheated oven 12 - 14 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
