sauteed apples

I like dutch babies.  They are a hit around here and I have been making them for many years.  Easy to make.  Do not need to hover.  What more can you ask?  But I have been finding that my sweet tooth is not as sweet as it was so cooking the dutch baby with the apples, spices, and sugar on top is making the pancake less  enjoyable.  So what did I do?  I took all the the ingredients for the topping and sauteed them together.  That way the can be put in a bowl or straight on top but there are many more options.

And I think this is easy.  But I keep getting told I am a bit crazy and odd.  Oh well.  That is life. 

This are similar to my roasted apples but I think they are a bit moister.  Both are yummy.

sauteed apples

two small apples, peeled, and cored.  I used honey crisps

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

In a skillet, melt the butter over medium low heat.  Quarter the apples and cut each quarter into thin slices.  Add to the melted butter.  Mix in the spices.  Let cook a little bit until the apples start to soften.  Add in the brown sugar.  Mix.   Let cook until the apples are soft enough to be pierced with a fork.  Make sure they do not burn.  All the sugar makes this something easy to do.

Serve with pancakes.  Or ice cream.  Or . . .
