Granny Smith Apples (Peeled and sliced thinly)

1 TBSP (14 g)

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. Make the apple cider caramel. Use a medium sauce pan on medium high heat, drizzle or rain the sugar in the pan in stages till all the sugar melts and starts to form a light caramel. Cook till medium dark amber then add half the cider to keep the caramel from boiling over. Then add the remaining half and cook another few minutes to thicken the caramel, then set aside in a bowl to cool.
  3. Now make the Apple Filling, add the butter to the same sauce pan to incorporate the residual caramel. Once incorporated add the apples and cook stirring occasionally until their liquid has evaporated and the apples are semi-soft.
  4. Now make the dumpling batter by mixing the Authentic Foods Steve’s GF Cake Flour Blend, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Using the paddle attachment of your stand mixer, mix the butter into the flour mixture till you get a pea sized texture. Then slowly add the heavy cream until a batter is formed.
  5. Assemble the apple dumpling in a casserole dish, by first pouring the apple cider caramel, then layering it with the apples and finally using an ice cream scooper add the biscuits batter on top.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes till, the biscuits are golden. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
