Check out this apple deliciousness…
I call it this an Easy Apples Foster Recipe.
I wanted to make a no-fuss dessert that used apples but didn’t require baking. Bananas foster is a favorite dessert of mine, so I thought I’d do a play on it with apples instead. The result was so good, hubby requested it the next day. And by requested, I mean insisted I make it even though I really wanted an apple crisp. Luckily, both are so easy to make, I made one of each, despite being super tired after working all day and teaching Zumba. I love an easy dessert (or two!).
This recipe is a play on the classic bananas foster, with a apple twist. I used Cortland apples, but any cooking apple should work.These apples cook up quickly and make for a great dessert. I didn’t do the flame trick most people think of when they think bananas foster, but I suppose that could be entertaining if you had guests over. Perhaps google some bananas foster recipes to find out a safe way to do that. Enjoy on its own or serve over ice cream.
*Vegetarian, Vegan options listed*
- 1 tablespoon butter (or sub vegan substitute, like Earth Balance)
- 1 apple, cored, chopped small (peel optional)
- 1 tablespoon rum, optional (but definitely gives that unique taste to the dish)
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- dash cinnamon
- ice cream, optional (use ice cream of choice – I went with a vanilla dairy-based ice cream, but there are delicious vegan ice creams out there made with coconut milk that would be wonderful)
- Melt butter over medium low heat in a large pan.
- Add apples and cook until softened, about 6-8 minutes.
- Remove pan from heat, add rum, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Return to heat, turn heat up a little (I turned mine to between medium-low and medium). Cook until most liquid absorbed, about 2-3 minutes.
- Enjoy plain or serve over ice cream.
