Apple treats

From pies to tarts, cakes, cupcakes, puddings and crumble, apples make for a good dessert which is healthy too.

Apple which is generally consumed raw in salads or taken as juice in majority of households, can be taken in other forms especially by those who have sweet tooth. Even if you are not too fond of sweets and enjoy baking then try experimenting and innovating with apples, and you can rest assured that those innovations will leave you immensely satisfied.

For starters try out an apple pie. Use whole-wheat pastry flour to add fibre and lower the saturated fat content by replacing some of the butter with canola oil. For the perfect balance of sweet use brown sugar that sweetens the filling in this pie.

A bit difficult to make is ‘tart’. Start by cooking the fruit, then top it with the dough, carefully tuck in the edges and let it cook. When it's ready you invert the whole tart onto a plate. It comes out looking beautiful and is
actually much easier than you might imagine.

If you are fond of cold desserts, cold baked apples topped with a dollop of vanilla can also be an option. Serve it in a bowl of fresh cold milk. The best part is the nut-and-fruit mixture nestled in the apple's core. Don't be surprised if the apples split a little—or sometimes even a lot—as they bake.

Also, apples and nuts are also classic and healthy combination. Pour a drop of vanilla cream or scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt over the hazelnut and honey garnished baked apple. A dollop of vanilla cream or scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt finishes this homemade dessert beautifully.

Apple cup cakes are also easy desserts to make at home, even if you are in hurry these can be easily made. Mix butter, stewed apples, sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and stir it until well combined. Pour mixture in tin and bake it for 40-45 minutes at 140 degrees Celsius.

Feel free to experiment with desserts, as it is the season of apples!
