APPLE CORNFLAKE CUPS

“You don’t get mood swings from eating cornflakes”  ― O.J. Simpson, If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer

This dessert is so easy it’s funny. No seriously, half way through putting it together I was giggling to myself.

It’s a wonderful combination of taste, crunch and resourceful ingredient matching. Shouldn’t (I will go so far as to say CAN’T) take you more than 15 minutes to put together. By dessert standards this is pretty much as low calorie as it’s going to get without lying to yourself.

Sometimes I find a recipe I want to hit you on the head with and force you to make. This is one of those.

Serves about 6
Adapted from Good Food Magazine

What you’ll need:

4 apples
1 cup corn flakes
4 tbsp butter
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 carton fresh cream (200 ml)
2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
3 tbsp honey

How to:

1. Peel and then chop the apples into 1 inch cubes.

2. Put the apple, sugar and a little bit of water in a pan and heat. Cook for about 10 minutes till the apple is soft and cooked. Divide this up between 4 bowls.

3. Pop the honey and butter in a bowl. Heat till the butter is melted. Mix.

4. Tumble the cornflakes into the honey butter mix and toss till all the cornflakes are coated.

Note: Do this right before you’re going to serve the dessert to make sure your cornflakes don’t get soggy.

5. In a separate bowl whip the cream and cinnamon till the cream is a little stiff. Store in fridge till assembling the dessert.

Foodnote: You can skip the cinnamon but I can’t bring myself to make an apple dessert without cinnamon in it. Some flavours are meant to be together.

6. For assembly take the tumblers with the apple chunks. Pour cinnamon cream. Top with honey butter cornflakes.
