Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cups unsalted butter
  • 8 baking apples
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cup ice cream softened

Method

In large heavy saucepan, cook sugar with water over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to boil over medium-high heat; boil, without stirring but brushing down side of pan with pastry brush dipped in water until caramel colour, 7 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in butter until smooth. Pour into two 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pans.

Peel apples; cut each in half, core and place in bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice and toss. Place, rounded side down, in sauce. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven, basting halfway through, until tender, about 30 minutes. Make-ahead: Store at room temperature for up to 8 hours; rewarm if desired.) Divide among dessert dishes; spoon mascarpone on top.
