For me, any dish with cooked apples and cinnamon is the ultimate dessert. The smell, the look, the taste…everything is perfect.
I would make more of apple pies, crisps or cobblers…but there are no takers for ‘sweets’in my house and one person who shares my sweet tooth is my son and apples are ‘yuck’ for him!! Sigh!!
2 apples (peeled and diced to bite size)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp cinnamon powder
½ tsp nutmeg grated
2 pinch salt
¾ cup water
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
2 tbsp cold butter (cut into small pieces)
5 tbsp buttermilk
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp brown sugar to sprinkle on top before baking
Combine the filling ingredients in a pan and cook on low heat till apples are soft. Stir once in a while to ensure it doesn’t stick to the pan. Divide warm apples into 4 ramekins.
In a small bowl, combine buttermilk and oil.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar.
Add butter to the flour and combine with your fingers till it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
Add buttermilk mixture to the flour and mix until just combined.
Spoon over the warm apples and sprinkle brown sugar on top.
Bake in a preheated oven at 150 degrees Celsius for 20-25 minutes until the top starts to brown.
Let it cool a bit before eating.
