Swedish Baked Apples With Almond Paste Filling

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This comes from the “Earthy Family” website (it’s amazing what a word search will find you!), but I’ve changed it to use store bought almond paste. Serve with whipped cream or custard. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F / 180 C /gas mark 4.
  2. Peel the apples and carefully core them almost to the bottom.
  3. Brush apples with melted butter, then roll them in the breadcrumbs; place onto a shallow oven proof dish.
  4. Fill the centres of the apples with almond paste; if you have any butter and breadcrumbs left over, drizzle the butter and sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the apples.
  5. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until apples are soft.

Wonderful apples!! I made this recipe using honeycrisp apples and used cornflake crumbs as the coating. Baked for 40 minutes so the apple still had some crispness to it. I topped with whipping cream (unwhipped) that had been mixed with a bit of almond extract to compliment the almond paste. Thank You for sharing Mrs B, will be made often this Autumn!

I made this on the spur of the moment tonight. I actually used 1/2 breadcrumbs and 1/2 graham cracker crumbs. Rolling the apples in the breadcrumbs did give this a very nice appearance, as bluemoon says. This was a nice 'n easy dessert.

SO little preparation for such an elegant-looking dessert that is ideal for weeknights or to be served at a dinner party. I used Granny Smith apples and added ½ teaspoon of cinnamon to the almond paste. I lightly greased the dish I put the apples into, and topped each apple with about ½ dozen slivered almonds. Once they had baked, the breadcrumbs gave the apples a lovely golden finish, and the almonds on top had lightly browned. They looked just SO delicious, and they were: a lovely blend of flavours. We ate them with cream. Thank you for a fabulous recipe! I’ve had requests to make them again.
