Apple and Apricot Bake – Munch Alert
1 lb cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
1 can (14 oz) apricot halves in natural juice, drained
Sugar to taste
4 slices bread (preferably whole wheat)
1 ½ oz butter or margarine
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Place chopped apple pieces in a large saucepan. Add the lemon juice and 1 tbsp of water and toss well. Slowly bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 5 minutes, until the apples are soft.
While the apples are cooking, slice the apricots and add to the apples for the last few minute. Add sugar to taste and set aside.
Preheat the grill to hot and grill the pieces of bread until deliciously golden brown. Butter the slices of bread on one side and sprinkle with cinnamon (and if desired some more sugar). Place under the grill again until hot and bubbly. Cut the bread into bite-size pieces.
Serve the hot fruit in bowls and top with the toasted bread. A delicious and quick dessert.
