Super Easy Bored Baked Apples

Jennifer Avventura My Sardinian Life (5)A few weeks ago my husband went to the farmland and returned home with a bushel full of local apples, and they have sat in a bowl, collecting dust, on my kitchen table ever since.

While at my tutoring session two days ago, the girls were baking apples and the smell was out of this world. They offered me one and I declined, knowing my rotting bowl of apples at home would suffice for this sweet project.  

I ran home in an apple-baking cloud of excitement!

I’ve never baked an apple before let alone cored one, so I went in search of a recipe and I found this easy one. I read it over once, twice, then winged it, like I do for everything thing I make. 

Without further ado … here’s my:

Bored Baked Apples

  • Use as many apples as you want.
  • Clean and core apples
  • Remove seeds from core, chop any extra apple.
  • In a bowl add sugar. I used white sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix.
  • Add extra apple bits to sugar mix.
  • Fill apples with mixture.
  • If you have raisins, currants or anything else delicious, add it to the center now.
  • Add a blob of butter.
  • In a separate pan, boil 3/4 cup water.
  • Place apples in a square baking pan.
  • Add boiling water.
  • Bake 200°
  • 35-45 minutes.
  • Baste apples generously with juices from bottom of the pan.
  • Serve warm.
  • Smile & Enjoy.

My bored baked apples were such a hit, I gave my husband one! ;)

And for my next adventure …

Apple Crisp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What is ‘farmland’? Your husband’s family farm, or just somewhere you can pay to go pick stuff? And what grows there?

    • He went to a friends land, who has a farm. Lot’s of great produce is grown here: artichokes, eggplant, peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes, apples, pears, figs, melons, mushrooms, asparagus … that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

  3. you can do the same in a pot on the stove, add some water so they have some liquid to cook in, then the sugar dissolves in the water and it makes a lovely sauce, like honey. You can also add dried prunes. P,S both cooked apples and prunes are very good as a natural help when problems with constipation…. in Italy they are recommended by doctors to….. help you go…. so to speak…. ;)

    • Ill try it next time on the stove top, and Ill make sure I have extra fun ingredients kicking around the house like: raisins or nuts. I’m well versed on dried prunes, they are part of my daily diet. Never thought I’d say that! :)

    While they are baking you give them a dissertation on thermostatic theory to bore them thoroughly? :)

    Hi Jennifer

    This sounds and looks delicious. We just went to apple country Friday and purchased wonderful fresh picked apples. My husband makes a pie crust, cores and peels the apples, stuffs them, makes a simple syrup. Put into a baking dish add a little extra sugar and spice mix, pour the simple syrup over the apples and bake until apple is soft and crust is golden brown. Yummy! Have fun with the rest of your apples! Great ideas for lots of apples! Have a great day!
    Love,
