Perfect breakfast for Passover, or really any time of the year, especially if you want to use up some leftover matzoh, or treat your loved ones to something special.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 4 medium-large apples (hard flesh, not soft mushy ones)
- 3 tablespoons sweet butter
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup cream
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 dash salt
- 1Make the caramelized apples first.
- 2Peel, core and cut each apple into small chunks.
- 3In a large heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
- 4Add the apple chunks and cook, stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes.
- 5Add the maple syrup and the cinnamon, cook until the apples are tender, about 5 minutes, depending on the type of apple you use.
- 6Using a slotted spoon, transfer the apples to a bowl and set aside.
- 7Boil the syrup remaining in the pan until it becomes a thick and luscious golden caramel (yum!). Stir frequently, don't let it burn.
- 8Caution--the smell will be tantalizing, but don't dare to taste the syrup, it will be scorching hot and you will burn your tongue!
- 9Take the syrup off the heat and very carefully add the cream, lemon juice and salt, stir well.
- 10Return to the stove and simmer the sauce, stirring until smooth and slightly thickened.
- 11Return the apples to the pot and stir until completely coated with the caramel sauce.
- 12Set aside to cool slightly.
- 13Butter the bottom and sides of a large shallow baking pan (about 9x13 inches).
- 14Be generous with the butter.
- 15Now make the matzoh brie.
- 16Break the matzohs into small pieces and spread them evenly into the buttered pan.
- 17In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cream, the eggs, vanilla, salt and sugar.
- 18Beat in the cooled melted butter.
- 19Pour this mixture over the matzohs and let the matzohs soak up the liquid for about 15 minutes.
- 20Smooth out the mixture as evenly as possible.
- 21Spread the caramelized apples, with ALL of the delicious sauce, evenly over the matzoh mixture.
- 22Cover the pan with foil and refrigerate overnight.
- 23Remove the pan from the fridge and bring the dish to room temperature.
- 24Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- 25Bake, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until completely cooked and the top is a light golden brown.
- 26To finish it off, turn the broiler on and briefly brown the apple topping.
- 27This is great served as is, but we really like to go overboard and serve with fresh sour cream.
