Give Me 5 Monday – Favorite Fall Foods

Give Me Five fave fall time foods with or without recipes.

  • Hmmm . . . As the days become shorter, and there’s a definite nip in the air, our family really enjoys a hearty, chowder-type soup, such as Cheddar Chowder.
  • I usually serve this soup with homemade Cornbread.
  • A dessert made with molasses, such as Plantation Cake, is a favorite fall food.
  • Another autumn dessert we enjoy is Pumpkin Yum.
  • Anything made with apples is a favorite around here. This is a recipe for Apple Crumb Cake.

    ½ cup shortening

    ½ cup brown sugar

    1 egg

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 cup buttermilk

    2 cups flour

    1 ½ to 2 cups fresh apple, some tart variety, chopped into ½” pieces

    1 teaspoon vanilla


    Cream together sugar, shortening, and egg. Add soda and buttermilk, alternating with flour. Stir in chopped apples and vanilla.


    Topping (sprinkle on before baking):


    ½ cup white sugar

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    1 Tablespoon butter


    Cut butter into sugar and cinnamon until coarse crumbs are formed.

    Bake at 350 degrees in greased 9 x 13-inch pan for 30 to 40 minutes.
