Summer is almost here and we grilled outside for the first time a couple of days ago since it was Walpurgis Night; it was so lovely, the warmth and the food of course.
I thought that I’d share one of my favorite grilled desserts, it is really simple, but the taste is so good. It just involves some sugar, cinnamon, butter and apples; so simple, but sometimes the best things are the simple ones, especially with food I think.
You can adjust this to be dairy-free by using some dairy-free margarine and you can make this low-carb by leaving out the sugar. I’ve had this without the sugar a couple of times and it was actually pretty good. Serve these with some vanilla ice-cream or good vanilla custard, my personal favorite would be yogurt with some vanilla added, but that might be a bit too tart for some.
Of course I used some extra salted butter with these, since I’m all for salt, but a normal person would use regular unsalted butter. In general I would say that using salted butter in baking makes everything taste much more interesting, since the salt adds some contrast to sweet desserts, for example a simple thing like chocolate tastes much better with salt, than without it and I would say that it is because of the contrast. Salt also brings out the natural flavor of things in a way nothing else does.
You will need some apples, butter, sugar and cinnamon.
Start by brushing the apple with some butter.
Mix some sugar with cinnamon and put them on a plate, roll the apple in the sugar.
Make sure it is coated with sugar all over.
You can bake these in the oven, if you are not going to grill (barbeque) them outside. Heat the oven to 400 F / 200 Celsius and put the apples onto baking tray and bake them.
If you are going to grill these, wrap them in some foil and add some extra butter and sugar on top of them (not necessary, but I do like extra butter and sugar).
Wrap them so that they look like this.
The time needed for these depends on so many things, the size of the apples, the heat used etc. I would say that half an hour is usually enough.
