These soft cinnamon apples have just two ingredients and are ready in 30 minutes in a rice cooker. They turn a plethora of crispy fall apples into bite-size pieces that taste like apple pie filling!
I am always on the hunt for:
1) Apple recipes in the fall when I have a plethora of them in my fridge
2) Recipes that baby Birch can eat that don’t require teeth
You can’t exactly gum into a fresh, crunchy apple. But these soft cinnamon apples melt in your mouth!
The Trick Is Using A Rice Cooker
If you don’t have a rice cooker you can make these in the oven or even a crockpot. But the rice cooker is the perfect blend of hands-off and quick. Actually, I learned this technique from Emily years ago and make these apples every fall! I have a Zojirushi rice cooker and love it. I am sure you could Instant Pot these too – but I am not sure of the exact cooking settings for that.
To Peel Or Not To Peel
I don’t peel much when cooking – I actually like the texture of potato and apple skins. But when making this for kids you’ll want to peel the apples. Trust me. Kids cannot handle a little skin. (I actually remember freaking out about baked potato skins when I was young and my dad saying “It’s the best part!” Now that I am nearing 40, I agree with him!!)
Your whole house will smell amazing!
