Spiced Apples Foster Recipe


  • 1/2 cup 1 stick Unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream
  • 3 Medium apples peel and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup Chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup Bourbon
  • Vanilla Ice Cream for serving


  • In a cast iron or heavy skillet, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until combined and mostly melted about 2-3 minutes. Carefully pour the heavy cream and whisk to combine.
  • Add the sliced apples to the skillet, followed by the vanilla extract, spices, and chopped walnuts. Cook, allowing the mixture to bubble and the apples to soften slightly¬†about 5 minutes. Pour the bourbon and allow the mixture to bubble once more. Carefully, using a long lighter, ignite the mixture (be sure to have a lid handy to extinguish the fire should it get out of hand). Allow the fire to burn out.
  • Spoon mixture in a small bowl and serve with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream. Eat immediately.
