A few days ago, there were the first leaves on my car when I wanted to drive home from work. That means: summer is over. It’s fall.
So it’s time for fall flavors! Pumpkin is one of my favorites. Fresh pears and apples. And all the spices! Cinnamon, cardamom (my all time favorite), ginger…
Right now, it’s time for another apple dessert. Baked apples are a favorite treat around Christmas time in Germany. Okay, we were talking about recipes for fall… But however. If you ask me, one can eat baked apples all year round!
Baked Apple Cream
- 750 ml / 3 cups unfiltered apple juice (cider)
- 3 tbsp corn starch
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 apples
- about 50g (two hands full) raisins
- about 50g (two hands) chopped almonds
- 3 tsp brown cane sugar
- dash of salt
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Melt the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Add the almonds and roast them for a few minutes. Then add the sugar and fry until it’s melted and caramelized.
Chop the apples and add them to the sugar almond mixture. Add cinnamon and put aside.
Stir the cornstarch into the apple juice until combined. Heat the juice (stir!) until it boils and turn into a thick cream. Remove the pot from the stove and add the apples-almond mixture.
Someone has to clean up, after all…
I had to make this dessert twice. The first time, it was gone before I could take a picture…. it’s that good.
It tastes great warm or cold!
And of course, you could add all the spices you want. Ginger would be great. Mulling spice. Cardamom. Whatever you like!
