Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and sliced
2 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 tablespoons
ground cinnamon, or to taste
I love baked apples so I gave this a try to go along side pancakes for breakfast. I used two Granny Smith apples, brown sugar vs. white and upped the cinnamon a bit. I baked it longer than 15 minutes... and this can easily be done in the microwave if you're short on time.
This rarely happens, but this recipe was strange. It is a new recipe and baked apples sounded great! I thought the cornstarch was different but decided to give it a try. I am unsure of the purpose of the cornstarch because it was like eating apples in paste.
Baked two apples, and it took about 25 minutes for them to become tender. Taste is pretty much like an apple pie filling. The Granny Smith apple gives you a nice tart contrast to the sweetness of the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Next time, I'll try using the granulated Splenda to reduce calories. Very nice, fresh side dish or dessert (either with a dollop of whip cream or a scoop of ice cream).
one Tablespoon of corn starch to 2 1/2 Tablespoons of water does make wallpaper paste. I made it again with two apples, 5 tablespoons of water and a teaspoon of cornstarch, with a bit extra of cinnamon and 3 Tablespoons of honey. That made the sauce something to spoon over ice cream with the apples.
I did this with two apples and sliced them down like you would for a pie. My toddler loves fruit, so I wanted to give her something a little sweet but still kinda healthy. I didn't change the amounts of sugar, water or cornstarch. I also added 1 tbsp of lemon juice and upped the baking time to 25 minutes (I didn't want the apples too mushy and that was just right). According to a nutrition calculator I use, this makes it around 45.5 calories for 6 servings (remember, I'm serving this to my toddler). All in all, this recipe was great. The only real change I made was using the lemon juice. If the baby doesn't like it, it is not the fault of the recipe! This tastes just like apple pie filling!
I tried this exactly as it states and it was good but the cornstarch and water was like a gummy sludge on the bottom of pan. Other than that the apples were very good. Not sure what the cornstarch and water was for.
I really like this, i added some crushed/crumbled walnuts into it and is tasted great!
I enjoyed it as is, and my husband liked it over ice-cream while it was still warm.
