When apples look like this it’s time to waste them, right?
It’s time to make a mouth-drooling, sugar bombed, decadent, and easy apple cobbler.
And don’t tell me it’s too much effort. Preparation time for this dessert is not more than 5 minutes. If you add 15-20 minutes in the oven, you will have an irresistible dessert in less than 25 minutes.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Unfortunately, it’s not true. Because you have to preheat the oven, and that takes probably more than 5 minutes.
But when I said 5 minutes preparation time, I was not lying. This recipe is so ridiculously easy you will hardly believe its true.
You only need 4 ingredients. An apple, syrup, bread crumbs, and butter. That’s it.
You peel and core the apple, cut it into chunks, and place them in a small pie pan.
Drizzle the syrup over the apple chunks and sprinkle bread crumbs on top.
Cut thin slices of butter and cover everything with them. That’s easy if you use your cheese slicer.
That’s it. You’re ready. Now you only have to wait for that oven.
Once in the oven, the butter will melt and smother the apple chunks together with the syrup. The breadcrumbs will create a crispy surface together with butter the syrup, and if you don’t love this, you have to originate from another planet. I prefer to serve it with vanilla ice cream and a lime wedge. The lime helps to balance all the sugar.
It’s quite amazing that you can make something so delicious with so few ingredients in such a short time. And remember that the apple was something you perhaps considered to throw away.
I know. There is a lot of sugar and butter in this recipe. But I never said it was healthy. Just insanely delicious.
And if you have a bad conscience about eating all that sugar and fat, there ‘s one thing you can think about that will hopefully make you feel better.
You saved that apple from being wasted.
And that’s good because we waste far too much food in the western world today.
The above figures are horrendous. But I’m sure we can change that.
We just have to think a bit differently. A little bit more creative. I hope this easy apple cobbler recipe can give some inspiration.
Because every food item that can be saved is a victory. Even if it’s just a withered apple.
