This is kind of one of those all-purpose awesome sweet things. It can go over ice cream, crepes, pancakes, waffles, cheesecake, pastries, oatmeal… you get the idea. I made this originally to go with some awesome buttermilk pancakes that I made the other night, and Darren overwhelmingly declared it to be the best thing I’d ever made. Of course, he’s been doing that a lot lately, since I’ve been tinkering more and more in the kitchen. But I’ll take the compliment anyway =)
Of course, since I did this in a hurry and wasn’t paying attention, there are no real measurements for this. It’s one you can easily play with though, until you get it to where you want it. =)
1/2 stick unsalted butter
2 fuji or gala apples, peeled, cored, and finely diced
2 fistfuls of light brown sugar
splash of maple syrup
3 or 4 shakes ground cinnamon
Melt butter on medium-ish heat in a small nonstick saucepan.
Throw in everything else and cook until caramelized, gooey, and awesome.
