Weekend DIY: Baked apples

This weekend’s DIY was inspired by the baked apple recipe I saw back in September on Jessie’s blog, Kitchen Chronicles. I tried my first baked apple in the winter of 2010. As someone who is allergic to raw apples (one of the many fruit allergies I managed to develop in my early twenties), I’m usually weary about eating fruits that have a slight chance of not being fully cooked. Baked apples stay in the oven for what feels like an eternity so I wasn’t too worried about biting into a raw apple.


You’ll need:
2 Fuji apples
Brown sugar
Honey (optional)
Maple & brown sugar instant oatmeal
Vanilla ice cream (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven’s heating up, take two fresh apples and make sure that they’re thoroughly washed. Begin to core the apples with a knife. If needed, use a spoon to help scoop out the apple centers. You’ll want to leave about 0.5″ to 1″ of the bottom of the apple in tact.


Once the apples have been cored, take the cinnamon and sprinkle a thin layer of cinnamon all around the flesh of the apple. With a teaspoon, fill the apple by alternating between a spoon of sugar and a spoon of oatmeal. Continue alternating spoons of sugar and oatmeal until the apple has been filled 3/4 of the way.


Drizzle honey over the top of the apple and fillings (optional). Place the apples on a baking tray and pop them in the oven for 45 minutes. Once they’re done baking, pull the apples out of the oven and let them sit for 5 minutes before serving.

If your sweet tooth is calling, top each apple with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (optional) and serve! :)
Let me know if you end up trying the recipe. Hope you all have a great weekend!
