Low-carb cinnamon apples

by Gilad

Low-carb cinnamon apples with vanilla sauce

Ingredients

Vanilla sauce
  • 2½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 star anise (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg yolk
Cinnamon apples
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 apples, preferably a type that is firm and tart, for example Gravensteiner or Granny Smith
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Bring ½ cup whipping cream, butter, vanilla and optional star anise to a boil in a small saucepan, over medium heat. Lower the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes or more until the sauce turns creamy.
  2. Remove from the heat and remove the star anise. Add the yolk while whisking vigorously. Place in a cool place and let cool completely. You can prepare the flavored cream up to 1 day before, and refrigerate.
  3. Whisk the remaining 2 cups of heavy whipping cream in a bowl, and mix into the refrigerated cream.
  4. Place in the refrigerator for another 30 minutes or more. You can place them in dessert bowls to make the vanilla sauce thicken up faster.
  5. Wash the apples and peel them if you want to but there's really no need for that. The peel adds color, flavor and texture.
  6. Core the apple and slice thinly. Heat the butter in a frying pan and brown the slices golden. Add cinnamon towards the end.
  7. Serve the apples warm with the vanilla sauce.
Tip!
The sauce goes great with various desserts, where you would normally have served vanilla custard. For example, you can heat a couple of blackberries or raspberries and serve with the vanilla sauce. Put it in the freezer and you'll have a luxurious ice cream!
