Recipe for Baked Apples


Baked apples are a classic dessert that combines the natural sweetness of apples with warm spices and a tender, caramelized texture. 


Choose firm and flavorful apples for baking, such as Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, or Fuji varieties, which hold their shape well and offer a balance of sweetness and tartness.


Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). Wash and core the apples, removing the seeds and creating a cavity in the center for the filling.

Creating the Filling

In a bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt to create a flavorful filling. Optionally, add chopped nuts, raisins, or dried cranberries for extra texture and flavor.

Stuffing the Apples

Fill each cored apple with the prepared filling mixture, packing it gently to ensure it stays in place during baking. Place the stuffed apples in a baking dish with a little water

Baking Process

Bake the apples in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until they are tender and slightly caramelized. Baste the apples with the juices from the pan occasionally


Once baked, remove the apples from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving. Drizzle with a spoonful of caramel sauce or a dollop of whipped cream for an indulgent touch.


Experiment with different fillings and toppings for your baked apples, such as oats, maple syrup, or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a decadent dessert.


Serve your baked apples warm as a delightful dessert or enjoy them as a sweet snack any time of day. Their comforting aroma and delicious flavor make them a favorite for all occasions.
