1. Delicious Apple Crumble: This easy-to-make crumble is sure to be a hit with the elderly. Start by preheating the oven to 375°F. Peel and cube 4 pounds of apples and place them in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, mix ½ cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, and ¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Pour the mixture over the apples and mix until evenly coated. Spread the mixture into a greased 9×13-inch baking dish. Topping: In a bowl, mix 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, ½ cup of white sugar, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and ½ cup of cold, cubed butter. Stir the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the topping over the apples and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
2. Banana Bread: Banana bread is a classic that everyone can enjoy. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mash 2 ripe bananas. Add ½ cup of softened butter, ½ cup of white sugar, ½ cup of brown sugar, and 2 eggs. Stir the mixture until well combined. In a separate bowl, mix together 1 ¾ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and ¼ teaspoon of salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and stir until just blended. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray and pour the batter into it. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool in the pan before slicing and serving.
