Skillet Apple Charlotte

AuthorJulie

3-4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into sixths
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp honey or Roger's Golden Syrup
3 Tbsp butter
4 slices white sandwich bread, crusts removed
1 tsp sugar
sour cream, for serving

1

Preheat the oven to 400°. In an 8-9 inch cast iron skillet, arrange the apples snugly, cored side up. Add the maple syrup, honey and 2 tablespoons of the butter and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook, gently shaking the pan occasionally, until the apples are tender, 5 minutes.

2

Uncover and cook over high heat, shaking the pan a few times, until the liquid is evaporated and the apples are caramelized, about 7 minutes.

3

Arrange the bread slices in a square on a work surface. Trim the corners of the slices to form a round the size of the skillet. Spread the bread with the remaining butter.

4

Arrange the bread over the apples, buttered side up, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20 minutes, until the bread is toasted. Invert the Charlotte onto a plate.

5

Cut into wedges and serve warm with a dollop of sour cream.
