  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups peeled, cored and diced apples
  • 125g (4 oz) butter
  • 1 egg
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

 

For the Caramel topping sauce:

  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons (90g) salted butter, room temperature cut up into 6 pieces
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) double thick cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt

 

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
  2. Grease a 9×4 inches baking pan and line it with parchment paper.
  3. Mix flour, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  4. Toss in diced apples.
  5. Melt butter and pour in the mixing bowl.
  6. Beat the egg and add in the mixture. Stir until everything is combined well.
  7. Transfer the crumbled dough into the pan pressing the top with a spoon.
  8. Bake for 50 minutes or until the top is golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Top with caramel and dust with powdered sugar before serving

For the Salted Caramel Sauce:

  1. Heat the sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly with a high heat resistant rubber spatula or wooden spoon until all the sugar has dissolved.       Once that happens, stop stirring!_mg_2011
  2. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn. It should be a lovely golden colour.
  3. Once sugar is completely melted, add the butter.
  4. Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Very slowly, pour in the cream while stirring.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in the salt.

Warning: Melted sugar is VERY hot and caramel does bubble so be very careful not to burn yourself.

Enjoy! Yum.Me!
