now this is clever.
I wonder if you could do something similar by quartering a slightly underripe peach/nectarine.
I really like the idea of precutting the fuit, coring it and droping a suprise in the middle.
Might you be able to do something with cold fruits as well? Such as cutting an apple in half, gutting it with a mellon baller and filling it with ice cream. (maybe some gummy worms?)
Actually what I may do, for this passover, is to cut an apple across it's width, twoards the top, and hollow it out, then fill it with charoset (or alternatively a waldorf)
In general it seems like a nice way to serve chutneys and salads.
Interesting. I've seen this done before by coring the apple, but never by cutting it first.
Use apple corer fill with mix of brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins.
microwave for 5 mins more or less depending on the size & density of apple. serve with vanilla ice cream.
add raisins to filling, very yummy
to make in microwave use applecorer and fill hole
microwave until bubbly serve over vanilla ice cream
What about the BUTTER?! You MUST have butter with it! :):)
so simple...i think i might even be able to do this...maybe
Looks delicious, ill be expetcing more articles on this so good blog
Maybe you can't try whit a fruit salad over this apples :D
I must say, the way you diagram the recipies in a table is awesome!
mmmmmmm. those apples look good.
question: am I the only person who read the title of this blog at first as "cooking for foreigners"? : )
This post took me right back into my childhood...mmn...cinnamon apples!
Made this tonite and my gang at home loved it. I would recommend it Just for the wonderful smell.
I can't wait to try this. I love this site so much!
simple and delicious.
i made three for a BBQ at my flat and they were popular. it would be nice if they were a little cleaner to eat, i got all stickey fingered, but i think ill make them again next BBQ around.
One thing I'd like to try is a pear hollowed out and filled with gorgonzola and walnuts and pecans.
With a Port.
Even faster and easier - core a whole apple - put a tsp of butter, a T of sugar and a 1/2tsp of sugar into the core with apples in a shallow baking dish (like a pie plate) bake at 325 for 30 min. serve and eat.
I have an apple tree in my backyard full of tart apples, wondering what to do with them. I am not an engineer but I love to cook. My finace loves to grill things, and I think I will try this today.
To the author of this site.... you are a very creative person- kodos-
thanks for helpin'. B)
quick oats work well in them too.
This is a delicious and easy-to-prepare treat!
By the way, I love your blog.
the boy scout handbook has a similar recipe, with a cored apple filled with Redhot candies, cooked over a campfire.
As a variation on the baked apple theme,
1. Slice the top off the apples.
2. Hollow out core and some flesh with the small end of a melon baller. Do not break out at the bottom of the apple - leave a good half-inch. Make sure you get all the pips and hard bits.
3. Fill with butter, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, brown sugar, butter, raisins, sugared chopped dates, etc. be inventive.
4. Spray aerosol butter on the top and on the sides of apple,
5. Roll lid and apple carefully in white granulated sugar.
6. Bake at 375F.
7. When the outside of the apple has caramelised, remove and serve with English custard.
Pardon my slurps!
For a twist: try sauteeing some really good sausage, dfrain well mix with brown sugar or whatever spices you prefer.
cover with foil, bake, and serve with cheese available as an added topping if desired by individual tastes.
Tastey and incredibly easy. My father used to make the same thing when I was a kid, but he used the cored apple technique (mentioned by several others).
I am unusually slow when it comes to prep work, but I almost had the entire dessert ready for the oven before it even finished pre-heating! A definite do-again.
a little lemon wouldn't hurt!
I've done something similar with pears, and with a pastry crust instead of foil. Very nice with a scoop of ice cream.
Man my kids and wife loved it. So I used it at my block party and it went faster than any other desert brought to the event. So delicous :P yet so minimalist, and easy. two thumbs up
For camping trips, each person puts a stick into an apple. Hold the apple over the fire to cook until the peel comes off easily. Remove the peel (keeping the apple on the stick) and roll the apple in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. The cinnamon and brown sugar will stick to the warmed and juicy apple. Cook over the fire, let cool a bit, and enjoy.
I think this is a great site. Thank you for all the good ideas.
I was looking for a simple apple dessert, and stumbled upon this. I tried it, having everything necessary in the house, and I must say, it is absolutely delicious.
I did have to bake it a bit longer, about 25 minutes before the apple was cooked through, but this was probably just because I got bigger apples. =)
Love your site, and will definitely be back for other recipe ideas!
Is there a way to BBQ the apples? Perhaps wrapped in foil?? Has anyone tried it this way?
Yes, to BBQ/GRILL you wrap them in foil, just as suggested in the directions, and cook for ten minutes, or until slightly soft. I suggest rotating/flipping them once. I also add just a 1/8" slice of butter into the center of each when I grill them, as I find they come out a bit richer. Personal choice though.
If I am baking more than one apple, should I increase the time I bake them? If so, how many minutes would I increase bake time per apple?
I'm now officially in an Autumnal mood. Thanks for the baked apple recipe!
