Serves 4
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 4 Apples
  • 3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 4 Tbsp white sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Apple Jack
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
Step 1

Prep Apples
Peel the apples, cut them in halves and remove cores. Now cut the halves into three equal sized wedges.

Step 2

Caramelise Apple Wedges

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Don't over heat, reduce heat before butter starts to brown. Now add the apple slices in a single layer, sprinkle them with the brown sugar and caramelise. Be careful not to burn the sugar.
Continue to cook over moderate heat for abut 10 minutes while stirring occassionally, until the apple slices are lightly browned on both sides. Then cover and continue to cook on low hear for about 3 minutes until tender. Take off the lid and increase heat to high. Cook the apple wedges for about 3 minutes until the juices evaporate and the apples are glazed.

Step 3

Preparing the egg creme

Transfer egg yolks and white sugar to a small pot and mix well with the Apple Jack. Cook on low heat while stirring for about 2 minutes until egg-sugar mix thickens - be careful to not bring to boil!.

Step 4

Stacking Apples

Distribute sliced apples into 4 heat resistant forms (usually ceramic). The bottom of the forms should be covered completely by the apple slices with the egg creme. Make sure that the creme is distributed evenly.

Step 5

Time to gratinate!

Time to fire up your Otto Grill! Pre-heat the Otto Grill for 3-4 minutes on max heat! Bring your grate down to Meat-O-Meter level 5 (lowest level). After your Otto has reached 800°C, turn heat down to medium. Carefully place your dessert forms with the apple egg creme mix on your grate and into the Otto Grill. Seat for 20 - 30 seconds until the surface of your grilled apple treat is golden brown. Then turn off the Otto Grill.

Take your grilled apple dessert out of the Otto Grill and top off with a serving of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy warm!
