It’s no secret that one of the many advantages of renting a vacation home over a hotel room for your vacation rental is access to a kitchen. Going out to eat for all 3 meals a day can be expensive, never mind time consuming. Why wait around in a restaurant, when you could be exploring the tide pools or catching lobster, kayaking or walking the beach. You get the drift…
That being said, you can understand why one of the questions we get on a regular basis involves what kind of supplies can be found in one of our kitchens.
To answer this question, I decided to do a little experiment. I chose a simple recipe, brought all the ingredients to the Coast and prepared the final dish in Sea Mist Cottage’s kitchen. Granted this is far from an exhaustive study of all our homes and items do break or go missing, so we can’t guarantee the availability of everything from day to day, but hopefully this gives you a sense of what is available. It sure helped me for planning in the future!
It’s kind of like apple pie, only with a toasted cinnamon sugar oat topping instead of a traditional crust. Okay, it’s nothing like apple pie. It’s way better.
4-5 apples, peeled and sliced/diced
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup sugar
1 stick of butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon
1 8×8 or 9×9 pan. I usually use glass, but metal will work.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel and cut up apples. Place apples in pan. Melt butter, mix in sugar, cinnamon and oats. Mix topping until crumbly. spread over apples. Bake for roughly 40 to 50 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
I chose this recipe because it has limited ingredients, most of which I was able to throw in one container together for easy transport. Yes, apples can get a little bruised in travel, but since you are going to be baking them, bruising isn’t really a problem.
