It’s becoming a classic
oh, I’m getting lazy. At least in blogging. Maybe due to my acute phase of knitting addiction… Nevertheless, I’m eating. Always. And cooking. Less than eating, but still quite often. And when friends are coming over here, it’s always the question: what for dessert? Something yummy. Something easy. But not just some ice cream. Too boring. With hot raspberries? Yeah, yummy, but a bit boring.
Moosewood helps – as often. Their warm apple-walnut-sauce (from Moosewood restaurant book of desserts) is just perfect! Not too boring, not complicated and not too exotic. And you can declare it as – at least a bit – healthy because of the apples. (Just don’t mention the butter and the sugar…)
3 cups chopped peeled apples (for four, I use about 3-4 apples)
about 40 g butter
1/4 cup brown sugar (maybe a bit less…)
1 cup apple juice
1 tblsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp ground cinnamom
pinch of cloves
lemon juice (if you have some…) of 1/2 lemon
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted
1/4 cup maple syrup
In a pot, melt the butter, sauté the apples, add the sugar, sauté until the apples have softened. Put the apples into a bowl.
Stir together apple juice and corn starch. Put this mix into the pot, bring it to a boil, wait until it has thickened. Add the cinnamom, cloves, and lemon juice. Pour this mix over the apples, stir in the walnuts and the maple syrup.
Done! Serve with ice cream. (or with whatever you want!)
