Deliciously SImple Apple Slice Recipe

Simple Apple Slice Recipe

I love that one of our local supermarkets has started selling ‘The Odd Bunch’ fruit and vegetables – the ugly, not-quite-perfect specimens that would usually be binned, and I picked up a big bag of cheap apples when I was grocery shopping last week. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these apples, they just look a little less than perfect – a lot like me!

So an abundance of apples seemed a good excuse to try a new apple recipe and this Apple Slice the perfect candidate. It is deliciously simple to make and simply delicious to eat. In fact, it is so simple and delicious that it is an amazing recipe for cooking with kids.

Younger children will need careful supervision to prepare the apples, or alternatively, you can pre-prepare them before beginning the cooking experience. The remainder of the recipe is simple enough for your child to take charge with just a little support from you.

  1. I have a surplus of pears at the moment. Do you think this would be nice with pear? Maybe apple and pear!

  2. what is a “sllice pan” ? a lot of recipes I am seeing lately are metric / European and is there a method to quickly adjust these to “American” terms ?

    We made an Apple slice last week! So yummy! It was great in the lunch box too. Lou x

  4. Yum! I love the odd bunch fruit and veg too! Always grab a bag of the avocados! Anything baked with apple in it is a huge favourite here so i’ll have to give this a go. Looks good!

  5. How long do you think the apple slice would keep?

    1. a couple weeks ruth. 🙂

  6. We have just taken all the APPLES off a “Ballerina” apple tree. I am using all “Not so perfect” ones for cakes and this will be a great new recipe.

  12. Hi could you use brown sugar instead of raw?

  13. I love simple recipes and this tasted great with our bumper crop of fuji apples! Since our apples were very sweet, I tried leaving out the sugar and it was a nice buttery result. Thanks for sharing this really easy and delicious recipe!

  14. Christine says:

    I have made this twice, so quick, simple and tasty.
    I made it for afternoon tea for Mum and a few of her friends, served with a little cream and a cup of tea. Was perfect.
    Everyone wanted the recipe.
    Second time I made it I forgot to peel the apples ?. It still all got eaten with compliments.
    Will be a regular recipe especially when our apple trees are ripe.
    Thanks for posting
