Deconstructed Apple Pie (minus the pie)


The lil one had finished his meal (a whole serving and a half) but he wanted more! “Give him some apple.” everyone chimed. So the lil one gets ¼ of a Japanese Fuji Apple, and amazingly finishes it.
What does one do with ¾ of an apple, 3 adults to feed for dessert, vanilla ice cream in the freezer, a still-warm oven and 20 mins to lil one’s wind-down time? 🙂 *lightbulb appears over head*

What one does:
1. Think fast.
2. Turn oven back up to 200°C.
3. Chop apple into cubes.
4. Place apple in ramekins.
5. Sprinkle apple with cinnamon.
6. Add a dollop of butter.
7. Pop into the oven.
8. Rap fingers on countertop / Attend to lil one for 7 mins.
9. Give a final blast using the grill for 1 min.
10. Remove ramekins from oven and place directly on plates. (Alternative – pour apples out into serving bowls)
11. Scoop as much ice cream as you want on top of apples.
12. Eat quickly.
13. Smile and be satisfied for 2 mins and go “aaaaahhhhh”
14. Get lil one ready for bed.

Now that I think of it, the lil one could also have had the post-oven apples 🙂 (omit the butter if you are not too keen on lil ones consuming butter.) 🙂

      1. Yea 😀 I did give the recipe a try the next day. Love it!! Quick and simple. My family loved it. Do you have a easy recipe for pears? I remember tasting pears cooked in wine but I don’t know how it was done…


      2. Oh that’s wonderful! So nice to hear that :)))
        I’ve never quite done pears before but here are some links after doing a search you may want to try:
        Jamie Oliver:
        Canelle et Vanille:
        Donna Hay (seems to be the easiest to do of the lot):

        Let me know how it goes yea?
