I just cooked this dish, and it was fantastic. I did make a minor adjustment though. I added orange juice instead of water. Delicious, easy, and fun. Growing up in Germany, my grandmother often served us what is called "Heaven and Earth". It is cooked apples put on top of a heap of mashed potatoes. I served this recipe on Jam powder mash. Healthier, and just fantastic.
I needed something fast for my 17 month old son who has to be gluten, dairy, and egg free. Breakfast foods are especially hard! I tried these with some dairy free butter (Earth Balance) and he loved them! He kept saying, "Ap-PULL" and smiling. Very easy and quick!
This is a quick delicious side we like to throw together when we're having waffles or pancakes. It's super easy and always delicious!
I don't ever add the extra water, though. It really doesn't need it.
