CINNAMON APPLE: A CLASSIC FLAVOR PROFILE
Apples and cinnamon go hand in hand like bread and butter. And there’s nothing better than an apple recipe that can pull double duty as a topper for a cake for dessert – or in your steel cut oatmeal at the breakfast table as a little energy booster for the day to come.
We’re using tart apple slices for this recipe – because they contrast the sweetness with just the right amount of pucker. Granny Smith apples work best – but you could use pink lady apples as well in this apple dessert recipe.
Honey and brown sugar are the one-two punch in the sweetness department, while steering well clear of drifting into cloying territory. Nutmeg and cinnamon bring warm, woody and dry spiced notes to the mix.
And walnuts deliver a fantastic pliant crunch and contrasting texture to the otherwise soft dessert.
What’s even better… you can easily make this warm, comforting cinnamon apples recipe in your rice cooker.
HOW TO MAKE CINNAMON APPLES IN YOUR RICE COOKER
To get started simply mix your apple slices, sweeteners and spices together in a bowl (everything EXCEPT the butter and chopped walnuts).
Place the mixture into the inner pot of your Tiger multifunctional rice cooker and use the Slow Cook setting for 45 minutes.
Once the timer sounds off, add your butter and walnuts and stir well.
Everyone will be asking for seconds of these warm, cinnamon apples – and you’ll be the hero of the dessert game. Well done, chef!
