Looking for a way to use your September apples?
Fleischmann’s Yeast suggests: Apple Crumb Coffee Cake.  

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 large eggs
2 cooking apples, cored and sliced
Crumb Topping (recipe follows)

Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt in a large mixer bowl.  Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF).  Gradually add to flour mixture.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.  Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour.  Beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally.  Stir in remaining flour to make stiff batter.  Spread evenly in greased 9-inch square pan.  Arrange apple slices evenly over batter.  Sprinkle Crumb Topping over apples.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake at 375oF for 35 to 40 minutes or until done.  Cool in pan 10 minutes.  Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.

Crumb Topping:  Combine 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 3 tablespoons cold butter or margarine.  Mix until crumbly.

NOTE - For best results use a pastry blender to cut into the cold butter or margarine. Mix all ingredients until coarse crumbs form.
