This recipe is a little bit faster and simpler than the one above as all you need to do is core the apples, no peeling or slicing required. I won't give you exact measurements, as it's up to you and your preferences. If you don't like nutmeg, don't use it. If you like cinnamon use some extra. You can simply take out anything you don't like and add something else instead. Just the apple baked on it's own is already a treat.  This is also a great dessert to make when you are on your own and feel like something delicious without feeling bad about it or having to bake a whole cake :).

Ingredients:

  • 1-4 Apples (or more depending on how many people there are, 1 apple per person)
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg
  • ground cloves
  • raisins, cranberries or other favorite fruits
  • chopped walnuts or any other nuts
  • pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • honey, maple syrup, sugar

Directions:

  1. Cut the apple top off. Use the apple corer to core the apples. If you have big apples you can make a bigger opening using spoon. In this recipe we don't peel them.
  2. Mix together nuts, raisins and all the spices together in a bowl. Add a dash of vanilla extract.
  3. Fill the hole in the apple with the mixture.
  4. Add a spoon of honey, syrup or your preferred sweetener on top or you can also mix it ahead in the bowl.
  5. Place the apples into a deep baking dish.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 F and bake for about 20-30 min or until the apples soften. You can also bake them in the microwave on high for about 15 min.
  7. Let cool a bit before serving. Serve with ice-cream, yogurt or chocolate.
