Select firm, tart apples such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp, perfect for holding their shape and flavor during baking.

Choose Apples

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) to ensure it's hot and ready for baking.

Preheat Oven

Use an apple corer or small knife to carefully core each apple, removing the seeds and creating a hollow space in the center.

Core Apples

In a bowl, mix together a filling of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chopped nuts or raisins. Spoon the filling into the center of each cored apple.

Stuff with Filling

Pour a small amount of apple juice, maple syrup, or water into the bottom of a baking dish to prevent the apples from sticking and help them bake evenly.

Add Liquid

Place the stuffed apples in the baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the filling is bubbling.


Periodically baste the apples with the juices in the baking dish to keep them moist and flavorful.


Remove the baked apples from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy them warm as a comforting dessert or snack.

Serve Warm

Garnish the baked apples with a dollop of whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon, or a drizzle of caramel sauce for an extra special touch.
