Brown Butter Cinnamon Apples And Whipped Cream

I’ve been on a single serving dessert kick ever since I snagged this KitchenAid® Artisan® Mini Mixer- finding ways to whip up easy, healthy and delicious treats has been a major goal of my pregnancy.  Which is what led me to an apple pie craving, which led me to this apple pie-ish incarnation, which leads me to sharing it with you because keeping it to myself would be practically criminal! 

Now that we’re in the throws of fall I am craving all of the apple everythings- and this little treat hits the nail on the head for me!  Warm, brown buttery cinnamon apples topped with fresh whipped cream, which is a breeze to whip up (HA!) in my mini mixer.   (An aside: why is it that everything mini is so much more fun?!  Case in point:  mini ponies, mini cupcakes, and mini golf!)

My friends, are you into brown butter?  I’m sort of new to it, but since I started making it it’s been a weekly addition.  The carmelly, nutty flavor is just the BEST!  And it’s so easy to make but also makes you feel like legitimate baker genius.  Win- WIN!   Add apples and cinnamon, top with fresh whipped cream and you’ve got yourself a simple treat that tastes far more decadent than it is! 

Seriously, thank you KitchenAid® for giving me an excuse to make small batches of whipped cream.  My pregnancy has been a million times better because of it.  Fresh whipped cream makes everything better, now that I think of it. 

And thank all of you for supporting KitchenAid®, whose partnership made this post possible.  Hope you love!  xx- Sarah

Brown Butter Cinnamon Apples And Whipped Cream


  • 1 Fuji apple
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • handful of chopped walnuts


  • Place KitchenAid® mixing bowl and wire whip attachment into freezer for 15 minutes before starting and make sure your cream is well-chilled.
  • To make brown butter, heat one stick of butter over medium low, stirring often, in a light colored pan. Cook until butter is browned and has a nutty, toasty flavor. Remove from pan and set aside the extra butter.
  • Core and slice apple into thin pieces and add to a medium sauté pan with brown butter and cinnamon.
  • Cook apples over medium-low heat until well softened.
  • While apples are cooking add cream and honey to stand mixer with the wire whip attachment ready to go.

    Did you warm/cook the apples in the brown butter or did you warm them separately and pour the butter over them? Thank you
