Baked Apple Rings with Caramel Sauce

A cider-spiked batter coats apple rings that are browned in a skillet and then baked. The honeyed flavor of Golden Delicious apples makes them a winner in this dessert.

Cooking Light OCTOBER 2002

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 apple slices and 1 tablespoon caramel sauce)

Ingredients

  • 4 Golden Delicious apples, peeled and cored
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup apple cider
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup fat-free caramel sundae syrup, divided
  • Powdered sugar (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Slice apples crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Set aside 8 largest slices; reserve remaining apple for another use.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, granulated sugar, salt, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir in cider and egg whites (batter will be thick).

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Dip 4 apple slices in batter; place in pan. Cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Arrange apple slices on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; lightly coat apple slices with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining apple slices.

Bake apple slices at 400° for 10 minutes or until edges are crisp. Drizzle each of 4 plates with 1 tablespoon caramel sauce; top with 2 apple slices. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve immediately.
