Hi! As promised, here is a recipe where no/minimal baking is required. To caramelize the surface of the meringue, you can place the decorated apples under a hot salamander (grill) or simply use a blow torch. This is a beautiful dessert and decorating it can be a challenge. Use a 1/2 inch star nozzle for piping the meringue onto the apple.
4 Large Apples - peeled & cored
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
4 tbsp Butter
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
(Classic Baked Apples):
Place apples in a baking dish. Fill the centre with Brown sugar and Cinnamon and top with a tbsp of Butter. Put a little water in the dish. Bake at 200 degrees C for 40-45 minutes or till apples are soft when pierced with a knife.
Alternatively, in a saucepan place the Apples and fill up with Water till it covers the Apples. Stir in Sugar and a stick of Cinnamon. Cook till Apples are soft. Remove and set aside to cool.
Whisk the Egg White and Sugar until stiff peaks.
Pipe the meringue around the apple. Use a blow torch to caramelize the meringue till you get a lovely brown tinge. (Or bake for 20 minutes till golden brown.)
