Yes, that’s right, A World Of Baking has become a series, purely because I baked some really cool stuff for the bake sale, and I’d like to share them with you! So last week, I shared the Alfajores with you, today I’ll be sharing the unbelievable deliciousness that is…
You heard me right, Caramel Apple Taquitos! These bad boys were the highlight of my baking campaign, last week…two weeks ago…The reason why, was because I was rather reluctant to bake the Alfajores, because it required me to slow cook condensed milk, inside a metal can, so that put me off quite a bit, but the taquitos were a completely different story. Read on to find out why.
What A Surprise
When I first baked these delicious goods, I thought to myself, it’s not so bad, I get to finally do something a little more complicated than cookies, plus it didn’t require too much time fiddling with the settings of the oven.
Now, it was about the time the sauce was really starting to come together nicely, when I realised something. It smelt like Christmas! I kid you not, the sauce smelt like Christmases I had as a kid, and because I couldn’t contain my excitement, I declared to my entire family (and some of my workmates) that I’d be baking these bad boys every Christmas from now on! If you are a fan of apple sauce, and you are a fan of Christmas, I dare you to try this recipe, it’s TO DIE FOR!
I promise you, you’ll be telling your families the same thing, once you try it…wow, I sound like an advert for these things. However, there is a downside to this recipe. If you don’t like getting sticky fingers before the recipe’s complete, I don’t suggest trying it. When I rolled up my taquitos the sauce and the syrup went everywhere. So, if you do make them, I suggest you have a really clean and flat surface, and one that you can easily wash. It’s not easy working with a sticky surface, especially after rolling the first three taquitos.
Time For The Recipe
As usual, the recipe can be found on Tastemade. It’s not that hard to look for, but here’s the link anyway, because I know there are some lazy bums out there, like me!
Caramel Apple Taquitos
Ok, so you know the drill, here are the ingredients you’ll need:
2 Chopped Granny Smith Apples
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Cornstarch (or Cornflour if you’re a UK residence)
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
1 Cup Water
6 Flour Tortillas
5 oz. Caramel Sauce (I couldn’t find any in any of the supermarkets I went to, so I substituted Maple Syrup in)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
And the tools:
1 Small Pot
1 Casserole Dish (that can be placed in the oven)
Your Oven and Hob!
Now For The Main Event
Just like last week, I won’t be detailing the recipe here, since it’s not mine. So, check out the link above, or below, to take you to it. Trust me, it’s really easy to make, you can even involve your kids if you want to, since they’ll probably love getting their hands messy, they can help you roll up your tacquitos!
You already know what they are! I absolutely love them. Yes, they can be sticky, but that’s exactly what you’d expect of something that involves syrup and dissolved sugar. Even cold, these taquitos are delicious. So, for those amateur bakers, like me, who want to be adventurous, but still keep within a certain skill level, try out this recipe. I’m sure you’ll be reliving your Christmas memories too.
Now, as for the recipe itself, it’s fairly easy to follow, but if you think it’s all about mixing for a couple of minutes then turning the oven on and baking it for an hour, you’re wrong. The first part is the one you have to keep your eye on. You’re using a small pot to COOK, not BAKE the sauce, and if you let it simmer for too long, you’ll have soggy apple chunks in something that will probably no longer be sauce.
Well, that’s it from me today. It’s your turn. Let us know if you’ve tried out these Caramel Apple Taquitos. What did you think of them? Did you like them? Did you not like them?
