Baked Cinnamon Apples

"A PRETTY DISH to have with any meal or for guests. Cinnamon, brown sugar and butter enhance these apples and make a good autumn harvest side dish. To give color use craisins instead of raisins. Kids enjoy eating apples this way."

Ready In:




  • Remove core and seed from each apple. Cut top peeling off each apple. Poke a knife in the side of each apple several times. As the apples bake this keeps the apples from breaking apart and gives an air vent.
  • Arrange apples in a baking dish and stuff each core with raisins.
  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon and spoon over raisins. Dot each with a teaspoon of butter.
  • Cover with a foil "tent" and bake in a 375 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Note: Before baking a teaspoon of maple syrup (breakfast type) could be added to each core and let ooze down.

  1. Wonderful! Such an easy and healthy dessert! I wasn't sure what type of apple to use, but I had Golden Delicious so I used that and it turned out great!
  2. A nice and healthy evening snack for us as we diet. I cut my apples in half to core them more easily (with a melon baller). Mine were cooked perfectly after 30 minutes. I used dried cherries which I highly recommend. THANKS! Made for AUS/NZ recipe swap.
  3. Lovely flavors. Was out of maple syrup, so used some honey instead, and it worked great. You are right about this dish being a hit with the kids, as compared to plain apples. Thanks and cheerio!
