Easy Baked Apples

Updated on May 6, 2014

An apple a day may keep the frowns away. Baked apples are a great way to sneak fruits into your kids diet. This tasty recipe is easy as....apple pie.

Prepping the apples will require adult participation but the rest is simple enough for a child to do. Kids will enjoy watching the apples transform in shape. The powdery mixture they created is slowly transformed into an oozy gooey delicious sauce. And most importantly, they will enjoy eating the delicious sweet apples.

Apples are power packed with Vitamin C, phtyto-nutrients and other antioxidants growing children need. But everyone knows getting them to eat fruit is a real struggle at times. By baking these apples with the skin on, you are maximizing the health benefits. And having helped in the process, they will be excited to try them too.

Note: Cooking times may vary. Cook until each apple is fork tender. As an added treat, try them with a scoop of ice cream.



5 stars from 1 rating of Easy Baked Apples
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 45 min
Yields: Six apples

What you will need:

  • 6 Apples, (Red or Green)
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon All Spice
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Raisins, (OPTIONAL)
  • 2 Tablespoons Crushed Walnuts, (OPTIONAL)
  1. After thoroughly washing the apple, have an adult core the apple by removing the top and bottom with a knife and scraping out the seeds in the middle. Leave the skin on.
  2. Have the children prepare the dry ingredients: sugar, spices, and the optional raisins and walnuts if desired. When the spices are incorporated completely, the mixture will look brown with no white.
  3. Place each of the cleaned apples in the baking dish. Add the water to the bottom of the baking dish.
  4. Place a tiny dab of butter at the bottom of each apple and then pack the empty core with the sugar mixture. Place another dab of butter on top of each apple.
  5. Place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees. Or place in a crock pot on medium temperature.

      This recipe is awesome and I love baked apples.

      I've just written a hub about Tufahija, Bosnian dessert and I would like to link this as the perfect alternative. I hope that's okay with you.

      Voting up, interesting, useful, pinning and sharing.

      Thank you.

      They are delicious. Incredibly easy to make too. Especially the crock pot version. Just stick them in and walk away.
