When I decided to make this roasted apple dessert recipe, I had a large bowl of apples sitting on my kitchen table starring me in the face. Because we were getting ready to go away for a week, I decided that I needed to use up the apples somehow.
While looking at my Secret Recipe Club assignment for March, The Bitchin' Kitchin' authored by Ellie Delancey of Hoboken, New Jersey ( Ellie, I live nearby in Bucks County, Pa.), I was immediately attracted to her apple recipe to solve my problem.
I really enjoyed looking through Ellie's blog . I found lots of wonderful recipes that use real food and fresh vegetables. I liked her relaxed writing style, excellent photos, and easy to follow step by step tutorials. It's a blog worth visiting. I know I'll be regular.
Roasted apples might be a simple recipe, but it was an absolutely delicious choice. As Ellie said on her blog, " It's like apple pie without the crust" . Another plus was the fragrance of apples, cinnamon and allspice that permeated the entire house for the better part of the afternoon. It smelled so good. What kid wouldn't like this?
This is Ellie's recipe .
I substituted palm sugar for the brown sugar, left out the salt and didn't peel the apples ( they were organic).
I was pleased with the results and my husband was thrilled. He polished off a bowl before I finished this post.
- 4 organic apples of your choice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons palm sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon organic cornstarch ( avoid Genetically modified corn)
- pinch ground allspice
- 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Core and slice the apples. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Then mix with the palm sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, allspice . Dot with butter cubes and bake for 15-25 minutes depending on how you like your apples. I did 25 minutes . Serve warm or cold.
