I´ve adapted and translated this recipe from a book about cuisine in Asturias but I can´t remember the name. So without further ado onto the recipe:
IngredientsI(2-4 people....I halved the recipe which was for 4 people but I think it´s enough for four people)
2 big apples(I used Ambrosia)
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1. Core and peel apples and chop into thin slices.
2.Put apple slices in a pan with 172 tbsp of butter, ground cinnamon and 1/3 cup of water as shown in the photo above(I would reduce the amount of water to 1/4 cup next time I make the recipe as I believe there was too much water) and cook on a gentle to medium heat for about 15-20mins or until the apples are soft (The recipe I was following was a bit vague and didn´t say how long to cook the apples for...)
3. Add the sugar and stir well and then add the breadcrumbs until well combined.
4. Place apple slices in a bowl(drain if there is too much liquid or juice) and add the beaten eggs. 5.Melt some butter (I used around 35g of the 50g which I think was plenty) and fry until the eggs start to set,then using a plate flip the tortilla over and fry until golden brown and cooked through.
My verdict: A new favourite Spanish dessert. I´ll definitely be making it again and c´mon apple & cinnamon and eggs-what´s not to like?
My kids vedict: Unfortunately my kids were a little less enthusiastic. My daughter wouldn´t even try it just for a change and my son tried it but spat out the apple slices. He´s never appeared to be very keen on eating apple slices or chunks though.Oh well,more for us! Maybe I´ll have better luck with them eating it next time.
