Are the apples quite sharp?

If so there is a wonderful pizza recipe for sharp apples

3 medium cooking apples (cored and peeled, chopped into small 2" chunks)
2 medium red onions (peeled and cut into wedges)
200g goats cheese (cut into 1" chunks)
tablespoon of thyme

pizza base of your choice - I usually make my own

fry the red onions until they are starting to colour, then add the apples and cook until starting to break down. Place on pizza base. Dot the goats cheese and sprinkle the thyme over the top.

Cook in preheated oven at 200C for approx 20minutes or until cheese is golden.

hope that helps

I made those apple pancakes today. Yum! Thanks CJane.

I'm going to try it again with better apples!

Tomorrow might be a great day to make apple cake. I'm partial to cakes over other desserts so.......

I don't have any wheat germ on hand though. I'm wondering if I could use some crushed almonds and almond flour and try to approximate the texture while still getting the nutty taste.

The cake sounds like it would travel well and we're going on a car trip to Seattle for four days. It sounds like a great thing to keep handy for snacks/breakfast/whatever.

And that apple pizza sounds divine! Unfortunatley my apples are a little flavor-lite. They're good but neither really tart nor sweet.

I think the wheat germ could be deleted.

they do really need to be tart to get the best out of it (never use sweet apples for it - yeuch)

I just made that apple cake and it is sooooo good. It is really more like a quick-bread than a cake in both texture and flavor which is fine by me. I like it better than regular cake.

It is a recipe you could really play with too. I could imagine putting in dates, raisons, nuts - just about anything.


Thanks Swimpy!

MrBloodyMinded, welcome to a2k!

And, that pizza sounds really good to me. I've made onion pizza before, just not added apple to it (thinking, the sharp green ones, forget their name). But even sweet ones might not be terrible with it.
