Creamy candied apple melkkos

Creamy candied apple melkkos needs no introduction. This recipe like the multiple other South African recipes, nostalgic. It’s like the rain pouring outside and the smell of the rain hitting the dry ground. The cinnamon taste with this creamy porridge/dessert just takes me back. I love the fact that you can have this breakfast/dessert either way and anytime of the day.

Creamy candied apple melkkos needs no introduction. This recipe like the multiple other South African recipes, nostalgic. It’s like the rain pouring outside and the smell of the rain hitting the dry ground. The cinnamon taste with this creamy porridge/dessert just takes me back. I love the fact that you can have this breakfast/dessert either way. And what’s even better is the fact that you can make it in no time.

I remember that I loved this recipe during my varsity and post varsity days. It was the perfect meal to make on those days where your fridge was staring you back empty. My salary when I started to work was covering the basics and it was leaving the necessities, like eating healthy a bit on the downside. All you needed was some milk, butter, and flour. With this easy meal, all the essentials are right there for a hot bowl of steaming porridge. Top with extra butter, milk, sugar, and cinnamon and you’re ready to go.  After I made this porridge a little crunch was added like these maple candied apples and crunchy walnuts. I love adding a bit of texture to everything I eat, that’s why I have to make granola almost every other week.

My son absolutely loved this recipe so for all the mom’s out there that don’t know how to feed the little ones a little bit of flour, butter and milk goes a long way!

Creamy candied apple melkkos

Melkpap

Ingredients 

  • 2 Tbsp spelt flour or whole wheat
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 cups plant milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil (not melted)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Apple
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Extra soy milk or coconut cream

Method

  1. Mix the spelt flour, cornstarch, salt, and coconut oil together, until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the milk, vanilla essence, maple syrup and whisk well, then place in the microwave for about 20 to 25 minutes (whisking in between) until it starts to thicken.
  3. Then scoop into desired bowls, top with caramelized apples, extra soy milk or coconut cream, maple syrup and cinnamon.

Caramelized Apples

  1. Slice the apples into very thin slices. Heat up a pan and then add the coconut oil and start frying the apples.
  2. Add the maple syrup and then let them fry up until the apples become caramelized.

Notes:

  • The spelt flour can be subbed for whole wheat or plain white flour.
  • Other alternatives to this recipes are adding some peanut butter or even cocoa powder for a decadent dessert.
Hope you’ll love this recipe as much as we do, it certainly is one of my old time favourites!
