This comes from my Hungry Girl cookbook, these are my personal changes - i prefer slicing the apples before baking, and i also use Gala apples (since that's what I normally eat), and i used enough soda to cover the apples (more than 12 oz.), so adapt to your preferences :-)


  1. core apples, place in casserole dish.
  2. pour soda over apples, sprinkle with cinnamon and splenda.
  3. bake at 375 for 45 minutes (until apples are tender).
  4. can be served warm, hot, or cold.

So I adapted this a bit based on what I had on hand. Perhaps I shouldn't be rating this since I did change it up a bit but the stars are for such a great idea! I used pears instead of apples, and regular wild cherry pepsi. I also just used a cinnamon/sugar mix rather than the artificial sweetener. I baked it a bit longer so the sugar caramelized a bit on the pears and the pepsi became a syrup. Served with vanilla bean ice cream. Super yummy and made the house smell WONDERFUL!

Baked apples have always been a favorite of mine, I can remember my Mother making when I was a child. These were easy to make and oh so good. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for PAC Fall 2009.

This was a delicious guilt-free dessert. I followed your recommendation and sliced the apples but left the skin on to give the apples some additional texture. I used Granny Smiths which gave a nice balance to the sweetness of the soda and splenda. I used Black Cherry Fresca and Brown Sugar Splenda. After 45 minutes the apples were tender and not too mushy. This dish was wonderful topped with Cool Whip. I know I'll be making this again soon. Thank you so much for posting! Reviewed for PAC - Spring '09.
