Easy Roasted Apple Shortcake

This easy dessert recipe is a great way to celebrate the season. Fresh apples are roasted with our California Extra Virgin Olive Oil, baking spices, and brown sugar for a unique and tasty twist on the beloved and fruity shortcake. To speed up the process, we opted for pre-made or boxed angel food cake. A light and pillowy cake perfect for soaking up all that roasted apple goodness.

Serves 6-8


4 apples, cored and sliced

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Pinch of ground cloves

Pinch of ground all-spice

1/4 teaspoons San Fran Sea Salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup lemon juice

Angel food cake, sliced

Sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping

Mint sprigs, for garnish


Preheat oven to 400°F. Place apples in a large bowl and season with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, all-spice, and salt, toss to coat. Add the vanilla, lemon juice, and olive oil to the bowl and stir to combine. Transfer the apples to a large casserole dish and place in the oven. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through, or until the apples are tender. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Divide slices of angel food cake between plates and top with the roasted apples and pan juices. Dollop the cakes with whipped cream and garnish with mint sprigs before serving.
