Stewed Apples

Breakfast & Brunch

Stewed Apples





In the Autumn, I make a pan of these a week. They take less than 30 mins with little effort and mean breakfast or pudding is ready to go in seconds, plus it makes the house smell amazing! I mainly have cinnamon but often change it up with five spice powder. No need to peel the apples, just give them a rough chop and they’re good to go (though if you want to peel, go for it).  Serve them over yoghurt, dessert or your favourite breakfast warming bowl!


  1. Core the apples and chop them roughly into 2 cm chunks.
  2. Cover them in a pan with water, add the cinnamon and let them simmer away for 15-20 minutes until softened, I tend to put the lid on if I’m in a rush.
  3. When cooked, serve in big dollops on top of your favourite dessert or breakfast staple!


  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon or a cinnamon stick or ½ tsp five spice powder
  • 500ml hot water or enough to cover the apples
  • 1k any apples (I prefer tart ones like Braeburn)
