Fried Apples

This is a rare recipe at Unfinished Mom's: a recipe I wrote myself! The only thing I had to go on when I developed this recipe is a little advice from my aunt, "Use Granny Smiths". Beyond that I had to figure it out myself. It is also one of those rare recipes when I don't usually measure. I just use "about this much of that and that much of this."  Fried Apples are one of my son's favorite foods and as I am trying to add more fruit to our meals, especially breakfast, this is one I am making more and more. (It doesn't hurt that apples are in season right now.) The warm buttery syrup that forms as the apples cook is really scrumptious.

Unfinished Mom's Fried Apples 
(printable recipe)

  • 3-4 Granny Smith apples
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • ½ Cup sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  1. Peel, core and cut apples into wedges.
  2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Mix sugar and cinnamon together.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over apples and toss until well coated.
  5. Pour apples into skillet and turn to coat with butter.
  6. Saute apples approx. 10 minutes or until they reach desired tenderness.**
  7. Serve warm and enjoy!***
    * All ingredients are approximations, adjust according to your personal taste.
    ** Do not cover with a lid as the apples cook; the syrup thickens much better if the extra moisture is allowed to escape.
    *** Excellent over pancakes or waffles, or just alone.
    Serves about 4 people with a bit leftover.
