Quick Warm Apple and Raisin Dessert

aaaCooking For Kids

It’s apple harvest season so I urge you to offer as many variety of apples as you can find to the kids. Here’s a really simple, warm, apple dessert to make for the kids in your care. After warming up the apples don’t skimp on store bought whipped cream to top this satisfying dessert. I have described how to make both the easy apple dessert and whipped cream recipes separately below. Feel free to increase the recipe to use many more apples since the kids will likely want much more of this sweet treat then one apple can make.

Warm Apple and Raisin Dessert

You Will Need:

2 tablespoons butter

1 Royal Gala apple – peeled, cored and sliced

1/2 cup apple cider or juice

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup raisins, soak in a little water for an hour before using to make them soft

What to Do:bbb

Melt butter in a skillet over low heat. Add apples, and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in apple cider, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and raisins. Cook over medium heat until the liquid has reduced and is thick.

Whipped Cream Recipe

You Will Need:

2 cups heavy cream

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

What to Do:

Whip the cream quickly with a wire whisk until the cream is slightly thickened. Then add the sugar and vanilla. Continue to whip until cream forms soft peaks. Don’t whip beyond the soft-peak stage because the cream will get too stiff and start to become butter. Whipped cream made with good-quality cream should last for 24-hours.
