Cinnamon Apples are so very easy that it’s hardly a recipe! Cinnamon Apples are slightly caramelised with the apple pieces soft on the outside yet still firm on the inside. It makes a simple dessert that satisfies and keeps well in the fridge for a few days.

Ingredients for Cinnamon Apples

Makes 3 portions
3 Bramley apples (or other cooking apples)
2 rounded teaspoons of ground cinnamon

For topping:
A dollop of natural bio yoghurt
a few walnuts halves/pieces for each portion
optionally a little extra cinnamon for sprinkling

Equipment needed:
Small saucepan with a lid and a clean polythene bag


Peel, core and cut the apples in fairly large pieces. Take a clean polythene bag and add to this the cinnamon, then the cut apples. Seal the bag by twisting the opening, leaving some air inside. Now shake the bag until the apple pieces are evenly coated with cinnamon.

Tip the cinnamon coated apple pieces into a small saucepan. Put the saucepan on to your hob (without the lid) – choosing the least powerful ring. Start cooking on a high heat. Watch until you see some steam rising from the apples. Stir, then lower the heat to the lowest it will go to. Put the lid on. Allow to cook for 5 minutes. Stir the apples again. Cook for a further 5 minutes. Stir and see how the apples are doing. They may to cook for another 2–5 minutes. You will see when they are ready as the edges of the apple pieces will be slightly mushy with the cinnamon beginning to make a sauce.
This dish can be enjoyed hot or cold. Serve with natural yoghurt, walnuts. Enjoy 😊
