Another Ramekin Cobbler — Apple!
It’s been a while- I know. I fail at updates. But life isn’t slowing down as much as I had hoped, which leaves little time for the kitchen. And, when I do have time for the kitchen, I keep not having a camera around for pictures. And I really wanted this blog to come equipped with pictures for the entire process- unfortunately, it seems that isn’t going to happen all the time. And instead of just not updating, I think I’ll start adding in some entries about other recipes I like and things I have tried. This week will likely have a lot of “recipes revisited” because I’ve been reusing some old ones to come up with some improvements and more deliciousness!
This does not come equipped with pictures. I did a quick cobbler the other night in my ramekins. And I just wanted to share with you the process of doing the apple cobbler in the same way I did the Strawberry Cobblers. I used the baked apple recipe from my Mini Apple Pies and just kind of combined the two into dishes of awesome.
The first time that I made cobblers, I used my larger ramekins and they were too large to eat at once- mostly because they were so rich. So this time I filled smaller ramekins and got five different cobblers that are just about the perfect size for one person to eat.
Ingredients for the Cooked Apples
- 3 granny smith apples peeled, cored, and chopped
- 1 stick of butter
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar (more or less as needed)
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (more or less as needed)
- 1 tablespoon sugar (more or less as needed)
Baked Apple Directions
- Melt the stick of butter for the baked apples in a pot. After butter is melted, mix in the brown sugar, cinnamon, and sugar. Give it a taste- see if you need to add more of any of the ingredients.
- Place the chopped apples into the pot. Stir it well. Cover it, and let it simmer. Then stir again. Let the apples cook until they have a good taste. You can leave them crisp or soft- depending on your preferences. I like crisp apples, so I didn’t cook mine as long.
- Spoon the apples into greased ramekins- as much or as little as you want. Set these aside.
- 6 slices of bread
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 stick butter
- Melt butter in the same pot you used to make the baked apples. Leave the left over butter/cinnamon mixture in the pot- it makes a nice taste for the breading..
- Remove from heat and stir in sugar and beaten egg.
- Tear the bread into small pieces and stir it into the butter/sugar/egg mixture.
- Cover the baked apples with the bread mixture.
- Bake the ramekins at 400° until the bread is golden brown.
