It was so cold this morning and our bed is oh so comfy and warm. What’s that warm soothing smell?? I quickly crawled out of bed and found that Jacky was cooking cinnamon apple for my favorite waffle breakfast!!! Is it my birthday?! Hahaha~
Look at those dripping thick cinnamon sauce! Jacky loves his doses of cinnamon.
It must have been waaaaay too long since the last time I’ve had any apple pies or apple tarts. We just bought a huge bag of royal gala apples, but we have just been eating them as is or tossing them into salads. We love our galas for a balance of sweet and tart, and how they’re juicy with a fine texture. They’re awesome for baking and cooking.
Ha! So I quickly stole a few slices straight from the pan. Gosh! The cinnamon apple slices are so full of flavors and soooooo easy to make! All my happy memories of apple pies literally came screaming through my mind. 😀
Step aside my love (maple syrup). From now on, I’ll make this cinnamon apple with pancakes, crepes, toasts, waffles, pies, tarts….! Oh, and ice-cream too!!! 😀
Sweet Cinnamon Apple Slices Recipe Tips
The cinnamon will mellow the tartness of the apples. You may try using tart apples such as Granny Smith for more tartness. Or try mixing different types of apples!
We sliced our apple thinly so it’ll cook faster, absorb more flavor, and taste tenderer. You may try cutting them in cubes, chunks, or thicker slices to have more crunch and texture. Just adjust your cooking time accordingly. Don’t forget to add more water if the cinnamon sauce is drying up.
For those who are not as huge a fan for cinnamon, try using 2 apples or half the cinnamon for this recipe. Adjust accordingly to your love for cinnamon.
