Keeping it Simple

Sometimes keeping something simple is the best way.

Baked apples are a delicious dessert that can be prepared and enjoyed in less than an hour.

The ingredients are easily found.

Four apples (I used Ida Reds)...peeled and cored.   1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 1 tsp. of nutmeg mixed together...1/2 cup of apple juice (cider is much better) heated and four tsp. of butter is all that is needed.

Fill each hole in the apple with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg mixture. Then top with 1 tsp. of butter on each apple and pour the heated cider over the top.   Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 25-35 min.  basting occasionally with the cider mixture.

Served warm with a scoop of a vanilla ice cream makes this a delightful dessert sure to please.

Thank you letting me share this simple dish.    Hope you have a blessed day!


  1. I love baked apples. I agree simple is is good!

    1. Hello meen, I've been following your blog for almost 6 months now without leaving any comment so I decided to quickly say hi today, just so you know you've got a fan somewhere. LOL. Your blog makes sense to me just like, another similarly interesting blog that I'm also a fan of.

      Keep it up.

  2. Sounds, simple, sweet and delicious !

  3. Ooh, I love baked apples. Now you've made me hungry for them...I think I'll go and pop several in the oven. I love the painting of the apple; interesting perspective.



  4. I love your watercolor sketch! Beautiful work!!

    I have never made baked apples, but this looks delicious and I will make them. Thanks for passing on the recipe!

  5. Apple painting is sooo good as is the recipe. I use Bramleys and don't know if you can get them, they are very tart, and I put in mincemeat (do you get that, we put it in mince pies and is a sweet mix not beef)

  6. Oh it has been years since I had a baked apple and you've reminded me how yummy they are. As always, my eyes go to the art and it is delicious!

  7. What a great idea for a dessert, fast and delicious ! Like Crimson Leaves I was reminded how good it tastes. Your paintings are great too, awesome shadowing . Have a nice week.

  8. At first glance, I thought that apple was real, then I realized it was your painting! Lovely work dear!

  9. This dessert looks perfect for this time of year, so warm and cozy and of course I love your drawings, a peek into your sketchbook.

  10. My husband loves to create desserts like this one. Alas, I am more of a chocolate freak than anything else.

  11. Love the sketch. You have my mouth watering!!! Enjoy the day...and your baked apples.

  12. I just wanted to let you know Debbie, I made this last night for my family and it was scrumptious!!! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Oh my goodness, this is a wonderful post! I love the photos, the recipe, the painting, and just the very wholesome and pleasant idea of apples in the fall.

  14. Yum! Haven't had baked apples in years. What a delightful treat your post is.


I love reading your comments. Thanks for leaving one.


With the coming of February my thoughts often turn to the subject of love. Certainly Valentine's Day reminds me of that special someone ...
