Looking forward to a great 2019 season, opening the middle of August. Check back for exact date. Hope to see you at the farm!
4 pounds Honeycrisp, Granny Smith Apples, or your favorite apple from Stepp’s Orchard (about 10 each)
½ Cup Brown Sugar
¼ Cup Lemon Juice
¼ Cup White’s Elixer Cinnamon Simple Syrup
Soberdough Cinnful Raisin Bread Mix (You cans substitute biscuit dough)
5 ounces Sparkling Water
¼ Cup Cornstarch
½ Cup cold Apple Cider
1 ½ Cups hot Apple Cider
2 Tablespoons Sugar + ½ teaspoon Cinnamon, combined
Peel Apples and cut off the core and then slice into ¼ inch pieces (see picture). Pour Lemon Juice, Cinnamon Syrup and Brown Sugar over Apple slices and toss in a mixing bowl before setting aside. In a small measuring jug combine cold Cider with Corn Starch. In a small saucepan heat 1 ½ Cups Apple Cider over medium heat and when ready add Starch & Cider slurry to cook into the sauce for final dish- this will be thick but will thin out when baking in the oven. Whilst this cooks, weigh out 11 ounces of Soberdough bread mix and mix in 5 ounces Sparkling Water until combined. To assemble: Grease a 2 quart baking dish. Pour hot sauce over marinated Apples and spoon into baking dish and even out. Pour over bread mix and spread out. Place a baking sheet on lowest rack to catch any spillage, and the Apple Sonker on middle rack. Bake for 35 minutes, sprinkle over Cinnamon-Sugar mix, and then bake for a further 15-20 minutes. Use a knife inserted in the middle to ensure filling is hot and crust has set- the blade should come out without any batter.
