Southern Baked Apple with Double Cream from Brennan’s
Updated: Jan 4
Brennan’s has been closed since June 27th. Since then, there have been lawsuits filed by family members trying to gain control of the restaurant. Currently, Ralph Brennan and partners own the building. With no end in sight, I will share with you one of their most popular Breakfast appetizers, Southern Baked Apple with Double Cream.
8 large Red Apples, washed and cored
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon plus extra for dusting
3/4 cup Water
2 cups Heavy Cream
1 tablespoon Vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Stand the apples upright in a shallow baking pan. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the apples, then pour 3/4 cup water into the bottom of the pan. Bake the apples in the hot oven for 50 minutes to an hour until tender.
In a medium bowl, combine the cream, vanilla, and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar. Transfer the apples to heated bowls and pour 1/4 cup of the cream over each. Dust with cinnamon, then serve.
