A baked apple stuffed with brown sugar, butter, and three spices is the perfect fall dessert! This easy baked apple recipe is one of my favorite cool weather treats.
When I think of fall, apples immediately come to mind. Apple pie, apple turnovers, and this easy baked apple recipe, of course. I’ve even made chocolate caramel apple nachos.
I just love this easy recipe for baked apples. The mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter gives the apples an extra sweetness that is so delicious, and tastes like fall. Pop them in the oven just before you begin dinner and they’ll be nice and warn when you eat them. And what goes better with baked apples than caramel? No labor here, though. I’m seriously all about recipes that are easy to prepare, so simply drizzle on some caramel ice cream topping and you’re good to go!
Easy Baked Apple Recipe Instructions
I found that a Cuisinart Apple Corer comes in handy, and does the job well.
It’s super easy to use, too.
Just be careful not to dig too deeply, or you’ll end up with a hole in the bottom, just like I did.
Combine your brown sugar and spices, then mix in some chopped pecans. Or not, it’s totally up to you!
Once you’ve got them all cored, place them in a baking dish and add some water.
Now, stuff your apples with all that goodness and top with butter. Yum!
Cover with a foil ‘tent’ and pop them in the oven.
The cinnamony, sugary flavor is amazing! Top with your caramel sauce and it’s pure magic!
Now, go make this easy baked apple recipe!
