I had a huge craving for something sweet the other night, but didn’t feel like going to the supermarket. While looking in my kitchen for some ingredients to make an easy, quick treat, I realised that I had the perfect ingredients for some good ol’ fashioned Appelflappen!

‘Appelflappen’ you say?! That is a very strange word to pronounce for non-Dutch speaking people.

Literally translated it means: Apple flaps :)

It is a crazy easy recipe to make and it doesn’t need much ingredients. Oh, and you will be pretty full afterwards, because, well you will find out;)

 

Check out below for the recipe:
