Thought of this one last night and decided to try it out. I think it is an interesting fall dessert.
I just cored an apple but left in the bottom so that nothing would drip through.
Then I chopped up the removed apple minus the core, shredded some ginger, and packed that all back into the hollow apple.
Next I drizzled molasses over the top.
Finally, I threw some granola on top, and baked for about a half hour, at 350.
It was easy, and actually really good!
You could of course make some changes. Perhaps you would like to use brown sugar and cinnamon instead of molasses. Next time I think I will replace the granola topping with a swedish apple pie crust. The crust is easy, just mix:
- 3/4 cup of melted butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
Spread this dough on top of the apple, and bake. Of course this will be enough crust for a whole pie, not just one apple, so adjust in proportion accordingly, or freeze the rest for later!
