Mele cotte in padella, con cannella e Marsala. Dolci, leggere e pronte in 10 minuti

Apples cooked in a pan: scent of cinnamon and the first days of autumn. Easy recipe without turning on the oven. Who as a child he did not eat cooked apples when he was ill, almost as if they were a punishment to be served in order to heal? the great, though, I learned to appreciate them and to prepare them as a delicious and beautiful dessert to see.

One of the first recipes I loved were the BAKED APPLES STUFFED BAKED , Anglo-Saxon tradition, really delicious when served with custard. A sweet simple to prepare but not as simple as apples cooked in a pan, flavored with cinnamon and star anise, cooked with a little’ butter and sugar. If you do not give it to children, I recommend you also add a dash of Marsala or grappa, that gives a wonderful scent to apple.

The apples cooked in a pan prepare in five minutes, they cook in 10 minutes and are a dessert (slightly sweet and low in calories) Also perfect for a snack of children (no brandy or Marsala in this case). I recommend you use organic apples, I used the apple Annurca, and cook them without removing the skin, because so the apples remain whole and compact. If you like apples, have a look at all my recipes CAKES WITH APPLES. as the APPLE PIE my mom, They also found VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel. Have a good day!

Apples cooked in a pan

The apples cooked in a pan is really ready in an instant. Wash apples. If apples are organic, it is not necessary to peel. Cut them in half, then into quarters. Remove the core and seeds and cut each quarter into further two halves.

Melt the butter in a pan, add sugar and apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and add star anise. Sauté over medium heat until apples are lightly browned on both sides, then add the Marsala or brandy, deglaze and cook the covered apples for 6-8 minutes or until they are kept. Serve the apples cooked in a pan while still hot or warm, with their syrup. Bon appétit!

Hello Ada
beautiful recipe with the flavors of autumn ( and even a little taste of before Christmas , period during which I make a lot of desserts based on cinnamon and star anise as you know I was born in Alsace and these spices are very used as well as schnapps !! )
I wish you a pleasant weekend

Thank you as always. Here in Sicily it is still more than thirty degrees and it is a little early to think about Christmas, but we all feel the need for autumn and different scents. A warm welcome, ADA
