Michigan winters were cold, so my mother always baked apple pies to feed me and my 3 brothers and to help keep the house warm. But when summer came, she'd cook these fried apples and we'd swear they tasted just like those fresh baked pies! Of course she loved that because these fried apples are so easy to make, and you can't even feel the heat from the skillet. Serve w/ vanilla ice-cream.
- Apples (3)
- Butter (10 g)
- Cinnamon (dash)
- Brown Sugar (dash)
Peel 3 apples (4 pictured, but I only used 3, promise)
Cut the apples into irregular cube shaped pieces, excluding the core.
Here's one apple all chopped up, finish the rest.
Put the butter in the pan on medium heat. The butter should be enough to coat the bottom thoroughly (and it will end up lightly coating the apples).
As soon as the butter is melted, put your apples into the pan. Cover the pan and let it fry for about 10 minutes. Then uncover and stir / flip the apples so the ones on the bottom don't get too burnt.
Let the apples cook covered for another 10-15 minutes then uncover and lightly dust the top with cinnamon (very light, we'll add a little bit more when they're completely finished).
Stir the apples a little, then drop the heat to the lowest setting and recover. Let them simmer for about 10 more minutes or until you can't wait any longer :D
The apple chunks should be soft enough to easily cut with a spoon. If they taste semi-sweet you can add a little brown sugar as you like (but when served with ice-cream it rarely matters if the apples taste sweet or not).
Serve the warm apples with vanilla ice-cream. When in the bowl, lightly dust with cinnamon again to give the apples that perfect pie taste.
