In the Kitchen with Jason: Cinnamon Apple Topping

This was actually a two-part recipe with oatmeal pancakes and cinnamon apple topping. The only problem is that there was only flavor in the topping. We had such high hopes for the pancakes but they had a sever lack of taste. Both Jess and I ended up just eating the apples and leaving the pancakes. Thus you get a recipe for some delicious apple topping and we will accidentally (read this as intentionally) drop the pancake recipe in the wastebasket without sharing it.

Pay no attention to the pancakes beneath the apples.
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • Peel, core and chop the apples.
  • Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan.
  • Cook over medium heat until it begins to simmer.
  • Keep cooking until the juice thickens and the apples soften.
This makes enough topping for about 4 plates of pancakes. The good thing about a recipe like this is that it is easy to cut in half or double depending on how many people you are serving. Please make sure to serve with good pancakes as it deserves better than what we served it with. You could also use this apple topping as a side of chunky applesauce or topping on waffles, ice cream, etc. The apple topping recipe originated from a Cook This Not That cookbook.

Please enjoy!
