Cinnamon Apples are a healthy sweet treat and a quick delicious dessert to enjoy. Topped with some vanilla ice cream, this simple dish screams for more.
Who doesn’t love apples? I adore apples and try to have them on a daily basis. My daughter adores apples, and I try to make her different apple recipes, just to have her eat them. Either baked topped with some nuts, roasted/sauteed, or raw apples are one of the must fruit to eat.
You can also check my old but timeless baked apple recipe here.
They are healthy with lots of health benefits, so I try to have apples in my house year-round.
For today, I have prepared a simple recipe with a super delicious taste. It is finger-lingering, comfortable, light, and healthy. Both apples and cinnamon are the best partners for a great-tasting dish. I adore the balanced sweetness with some pinch of nutmeg that works so great together. It isn’t a too sweet dessert, nor too mashy, but a balanced taste to simply savour after a hearty meal.
This simple dish has an aromatic flavour that nicely fills up the kitchen. I adore making this kind of fall-treat that you can make with so many add-ins. It is divine and fabulous. It is one of the most comforting dessert infused with flavourful cinnamon that merely is mouth-watering.
If you want a quick, but delicious dessert – then this is definitely the one for you. Simple, fast, and fabulous.
What apples are the best for this recipe?
For this easy and simple recipe, you can use any apples you have or like. For example, you can use Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Jonagold, Cortland and other great-tasting apples for baking or roasting.
Today’s recipe is simple because I have sauteed the apples, and didn’t bake them. However, you can easily bake apples for this quick and fast recipe. I adore green Granny Smith apples as they are sweet/sour, hard enough with a soft/thin skin that is so delicious and healthy.
How to prevent apples from browning?
While cutting the apples squeeze some lemon juice and add a pinch of salt to prevent them from browning. This is definitely only for a fancy and elegant look, but I also adore some nice-looking pale yellow roasted apples with cinnamon.
Are apples and cinnamon good for you?
As you know, apples are one of the best fruits to have them every day, so does the cinnamon. Both of these products work nicely and great together. They create a delicious tasting duo together that pair so well. The sweet/sour apple taste nicely infused in cinnamon create a fabulous taste to simply enjoy as it is, or stuffed in different cakes or pastry.
We all know that apples are great for our health as they are full of vitamins, help for digestion and help to clean our teeth.
How about cinnamon?
It is one of the notable species in the world with an intense, pleasant aroma that makes our dishes not only flavourful but healthy and useful. Cinnamon helps to lower the blood sugar levels, heart diseases, is good for stomach when you feel some discomfort and many other health benefits. So yes, they are good for you!
How to make Cinnamon Apples?
This is definitely one of the easiest desserts I simply adore to make. It has a deep flavour of cinnamon combined with some nutmeg that makes this apple dessert so unique and so quick to make.
What are the ingredients:
4-5 big Granny Smith apples or any other you have
½ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup cinnamon
Some lemon juice
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with some plain water
Peel, core, and chop all the apples. Take a bowl and add all apple slices. Squeeze some lemon juice with a pinch of salt to prevent from browning.
Take a large skillet and melt the butter. Add the sliced apples, then continue adding the brown sugar, cinnamon, and the grounded nutmeg. Optional, for a more intense aroma, you can add some ginger powder. Gently mix all the ingredients to coat all smells. Cover the skillet and cook about 5 minutes. Apples should be soft and nice-looking, but not too mushy.
Now add the cornstarch with water to thicken the texture (1 tbsp cornstarch to 1/3cup of water). Turn off the heat.
Take a nice plate or bowl and pour the apples with its sweet sauce. Top a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream and serve immediately. Warm cinnamon apples are more than a sweet treat; they are really marvellous and divine!!!
