It’s apple season again. Apples have long been a favorite fruit. I especially love apple desserts. This is a fairly quick-cooking, at very easy apple topping recipe. I love using atop Browned Butter French Toast or pancakes, mixing it into plain yogurt for a dessert, or using it as a topping for vanilla ice cream.
Total Active Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: About 20 minutes
1 medium to large apple, diced, such as Jonathon or Pippin, or whatever you have on hand
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar, or maple syrup
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Gently melt the 1-tablespoon of butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat. While the butter is melting, core and dice the apple. It’s not necessary to peel it but you can if you wish.
Add the diced apple to the melted butter in the skillet, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and ¼ teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg.
Sauté the apples for 20 to 25 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the apples are soft.
Serve warm with the dish of your choice.
