Yesterday, Lauren posted about a simple dessert recipe that looked delicious. I decided to give it a try.
The website she got this recipe from had comments posted to it that said things like: “I love this dessert. It’s not too sweet.” Not too sweet? What does that even mean? I got a little nervous that it wouldn’t be sweet at all. I mean, it uses Granny Smith apples. So… sour… So I doubled the sugar.
It looked like things were going to be alright. Lauren said more sugar might brown too quickly. As it turns out, it was a beautiful golden color at the end of the cooking time. But when I went to stick a toothpick in to see if it was done, something was wrong. The top of the dessert was a hard, impenetrable crust. I had made cement or something.
I took the dessert out anyway, and found that the bottom was useable.
It tasted okay. The stuff around the apples was kind of eggy. It reminded me a little of pudding. Maybe I’ll make pudding tonight. Mmm…
