Warm Apple Crisp Cakes Recipe

September offers cooler weather, colorful foliage, and NATIONAL APPLE MONTH! In spirit of the delectable fall fruit our friends over at Sparkling ICE sent over this delicious looking recipe. Super perfect for Fall and I think it would be fabulous to serve all season long...right through the holidays.

Warm Apple Crisp Cakes Recipe

For The Crumble:

1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

For The Apples:

¾ cup Crisp Apple Sparkling ICE
8 red apples (Gala or Fuji preferred)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
1½ tablespoons cornstarch
Directions

For the crumble

Combine brown sugar and flour in a mixing bowl, and cut in the butter with your hands. Mixture should look coarse with some chunks the size of peas. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to harden up. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the crumble on. Bake for 12-18 minutes or until light brown. Place baking tray on a wire rack to cool.

For the apples

Core and cube the apples and place in a large bowel of cold water to avoid browning. Whisk together the cornstarch with Sparkling ICE in a small mixing bowl, set aside. In a medium saucepan melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the apples, salt, and cinnamon. Sautee over a medium flame for 3 minutes. Pour the Sparkling Ice and cornstarch mixture into the pot, stirring continuously. Simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the remaining tablespoon of butter.

Assembly

Break the cooled crumble up with your hands to desired size. Scoop the warm apples into 6 small ramekins or an 8 inch square serving dish. Top with crumble. Serve immediately.
