Individual Caramel Apple Sharlotka
Inspired by the Puremade Caramel Sauce from Torani, sugar from Bob's Red Mill, and vanilla paste from Taylor & Colledge, I wanted to make a tasty treat. But, I didn't want an entire cake, so I opted to make personal-sized apple sharlotka. Gotta love these generous sponsors* who sent the bloggers products to use in their recipe creations.
Ingredients makes 12
- 8 ounces whole milk ricotta
- 1/4 C softened butter
- 1/2 C granulated sugar (prefer Bob's Red Mill)
- 1 t organic vanilla paste (prefer Taylor & Colledge)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 C milk
- 1 C flour
- 2 t baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 2 C apples, peeled chopped
- Also needed: parchment paper, butter, cupcake tin
- powdered sugar
- ice cream
- caramel sauce (prefer Torani's Puremade Caramel Sauce)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. While the oven heats, butter the cupcake hollows and cut parchment paper to line the bottom of each hollow. Set aside.
Whisk together ricotta, softened butter, sugar, vanilla paste, eggs, and milk. Fold in the dry ingredients until just moistened. Stir in the chopped apples.
Scoop 1/2 C batter into each hollow and place the pan in the oven. Bake until the top is golden and pops back up when pressed. Mine took about 50 minutes.
Dust with powdered sugar. Place a scoop of ice cream on the side.
Drizzle with caramel syrup and serve immediately. Quick note: this Puremade Caramel Sauce from Torani is a brand-new product; it will be released to customers shortly. I love that Torani Puremade Syrups contain: no artificial preservatives; no artificial colors; no artificial flavors; and no GMOs!
