How-To: Make Warm Apple Topping

Sneak peak of topping with rice pudding
Apple season is coming to a close and I decide to stock up while they are still cheap and fresh. With so many apples, I need to think of new ways to use them (such as in my Apple, Raisin, Toasted Walnut and Spinach Salad). Here is a quick an easy recipe that can be used in soooo many ways.

This little mixture of warm apples, spices and almonds can go on many tasty treats to take them to the next level and it is so quick and easy to make. It is a great basic recipe to get started with, and you can add different spices and flavours to make your own variation.

You can use this on top of pancakes, french toast, ice cream, pastries, yogurt, oatmeal and so on and so on and so on. My recent use was on rice pudding when a foodie friend of mine and I put our heads together to make a quick and easy dessert on the spot (more on that recipe later).

Warm Apple Topping

2 Apples
2-3 Tbsp of Slivered Almonds
1 Tbsp of butter
2 Tsp of Cinnamon
1 Tsp of Nutmeg (optional)
Splash of lemon juice (optional)

Pre-heat a pan to medium heat and melt the butter. In the mean time, slice n dice the apples how you like em. Throw the almonds in the pan and toss in butter, slightly toasting them - about 2-3 minutes.

Add your apples and sprinkle spices over apples. Toss (or stir) apples until the are completely coated by butter and spices.

Cook until apples start to get a little soft, about another 5-7 minutes. Take off heat and serve!

I want some right now....
