In our family we love apples and this seasons is just perfect for apple baking and drinks. I came across these receipts and had to share them with you as I can't wait myself to try them. And although I haven't drunk vodka for ages, I might get persuaded to this one. 


Yield: serves 6
  • 18 ounces apple juice
  • 6 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 star anise pods
  • 18 ounces of Vodka
  • 6 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon
  • ice
  • 12 oz. bottle of sparking water (optional)
  • apple slices, for garnish


  1. In a small saucepan simmer the apple juice with the cinnamon sticks and star anise. When it barely comes to a boil, remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes, then chill for a couple of hours (or overnight).
  2. When your'e ready to start making cocktails, remove the cinnamon sticks and star anise and set aside for garnish.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, shake the spiced apple juice, vodka, lemon, and ice together (work in batches if you need to).
  4. Pour into glasses, add a splash of sparking water, and garnish with apple slices, cinnamon sticks and star anise pods.
On same website I found this delicious dish which I know my daughter will love. YUM!

Apples, brown sugar and cinnamon get softened in a pan with butter, and an egg mixture gets poured on top. The thin egg layer and pillowy apples create more of a custard-like texture than a traditional doughy pancake.

Bake until it puffs up and serve hot slices right out of the pan.

Yield: serves 2-3
  • 2 tablespoons butter (or vegan earth balance)
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
  • 2 tablespoons flour (any kind, I had spelt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Whisk together eggs and milk.
  4. Mix together flour and baking powder and stir it into the egg/milk mixture.
  5. In a skillet, heat butter, add the apple slices and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar mixture and cook, stirring, until soft. About 5 minutes.
  6. Pour the batter over the apples and sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on top.
  7. Bake until it puffs up, about 18-20 minutes.
  8. Dust with a little powdered sugar
