This smells delicious while it bakes. It can easily be multiplied to accomodate a larger family. If you use a cold apple, the sugar will stick to the outside nicely, but it will take longer to cook. I have heard of people using honey instead of sugar, but it tastes funny to me. (note: I'm sorry I originally forgot to post the baking temperature of 375)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven (or toaster oven) to 375.
  2. Place the apple in a small oven safe bowl or dish.
  3. Spoon the liquid into the dish beneath the apple.
  4. Layer the sugar, raisins, and cinnamon in the center of the apple, sprinkling the excess sugar (with a touch of cinnamon) over the top.
  5. Cover the entire dish with foil and bake until tender, about 20 minutes (for a small apple.).
  6. It can safely be eaten 5 minutes out of the oven.

Simply WOW! This is a perfect, easy, quick, healthy and yummy way of preparing baked apples! I used only 1 ts sugar and found it sweet enough due to the apple's own sweetness. Other than that I followed your recipe to the t and it was so YUMMY! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this gem of a recipe with us, Japan bound! Made and reviewed for the An Apple A Day Challenge in the photo forum Octobre 09.

Very tasty, I'll make this again. The only thing I would say is that firm apples are better. I used a soft variety and it went a bit mushy. Thanks for posting!
