Caramelised apples with sweet tortillas

Recipe: Caramelised apples with sweet tortillas


  • 25g butter
  • 2 (about 150g each) jonathan apples, cored, thinly sliced
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) cold water
  • 100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
  • 2 fajita tortillas (Old El Paso brand), cut into quarters
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  • 4 x 50g scoops light & creamy 97 per cent
  • fat-free vanilla ice-cream (Peters brand)


  1. Melt the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat until foaming. Add the apple slices and cook, turning occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Add the water and half the sugar and cook, turning occasionally, for 7-8 minutes or until caramelised and golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Kids’ task: Brush tortilla wedges with oil. Place remaining sugar on a plate. Press tortilla wedges into the sugar to coat. Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook tortilla wedges for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden brown.
  3. Place a tortilla wedge on each serving plate. Top with a scoop of ice-cream and some caramelised apple. Repeat with the remaining tortilla wedges and apple. Serve immediately.
