Valerie's Kitchen:Pan-fried Cognac Brandy Apples

Generally,I like fruit;somehow,apple is not my thing.What's more,even my doctor doesn't know why I easily get stomachache whenever I eat apple.That's really weird!But here's something unexpected going on!

Curtis Stone,an extremely charming and humorous Australian chef (geez he's my dream lover! ),who hosts a popular tv show,Take Home Chef,demonstrated an amazing dish of Normandy Apple Crêpe last night.I immediately feel like aw I gotta learn it right away!

The recipe is very simple,anyone can get the hang of it in no time.To my surprise,this's the first dessert that I successfully ace it at the very first time.So trust me,you can't go wrong even if you're a rookie.It's kind of a plain appearance with a freaking good taste!

Sadly,I have neither a crêpe machine nor mascarpone cheese,which means I only can make the pan-fried apples today.The good news is I booked a crêpe machine just now.Hopefully,I'll create different kinds of crêpe soon.

To fry the apple(a person's portion is about one apple),you just have to peel and slice it first.Then,put them into the pan,sprinkle some sugar and honey,drizzle some cinnamon and Cognac Brandy.Sounds so easy,huh?And after five minutes (or till you can smell the mouthwatering aroma and see the fringe gets burned a little bit),voilà!Here's your delicious pan-fried apples!

This is my first time completely in love with apple.How can it be so yummy just with a tiny trick?Aw btw,if you're obsessed with slathering a thick layer of peanut butter on apple,give it up!I guarantee that your favorite snack would be pan-fried apples hereafter.

Ah!I almost forget to tell you the most important tip,which is don't waste the juice in the pan!The liquid left in the pan is caramel!Drizzle it on the top of apples after you put them in a plate!Bon appetit!
