:: Caramel Apple Sauce

February 24, 2009 at 7:28 am 18 comments

Happy Pancake Tuesday!  I hope you have your batter ready!  If not find the recipe in the post below.  This caramel apple sauce is perfect for pancakes and ideal to jazz up pancake Tuesday.  I’m in Stockholm and away from the kitchen this week so have a few pancakes on me.

Caramel Apple Sauce

I originally made this to go with pancakes but it works so well as part of other desserts like waffles, ice cream, and even my American style oaty pancakes!

75g of butter.
5 tablespoons of golden syrup.
3 golden delicious apples, peeled and cored.
1 tablespoon of caster sugar.
1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder.

In a small sauce pan bring the butter and golden syrup to the boil.  Allow to simmer and bubble for approximately 4-5 minutes or until the sauce thickens.  Set aside.
Chop the apples into chunky slices.  Melt a knob of butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the apples slices.  Sprinkle over the cinnamon and caster sugar, toss to combine.  Fry the apples, tossing every now and then until you get a nice golden colour on all sides and they have become soft (About 3-4 minutes either side).  When the apples are ready, add them to the butter and golden syrup sauce and stir gently to combine.
Serve the sauce with homemade pancakes and some sneaky vanilla ice cream!

    I really enjoy your blog. I have two questions about this sauce, what is “golden syrup” and what is “caster sugar”? Please help the American.Thanks

    Hey Treehouse Chef!Thanks- it wasn’t a concious decision!Hey Finsmom!I hope you’ve cleaned up over there! 🙂Hey Anon!Caster sugar is like finer sugar and I guess you could substitute maple syrup for golden syrup.
