Baked Apple for One

"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)"

    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.

    I used large honeycrisp apples and found 20 mins was not long enough for baking (easy fix, just put them back in for 15 mins more) They are very firm apples and I think size played a factor. Great birthday "cake" served hot with vanilla ice cream, thank you!

    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!

    My only complaint about this recipe is that it does not specify an oven temperature. I set my oven to 350 and after baking the apple for 40 minutes it was still not tender. So I stuck it in the microwave for 2 minutes and then it was perfect. I had mine with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Wonderful!
