Fall is my favourite time of year for a number of reasons: the weather, the colours, the clothes, and the food. Oh, the food! What is it about fall foods that makes it so comforting? Apple cider, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, my mom’s homemade apple sauce (speaking of which, mom if you’re reading this I wouldn’t be opposed to some appearing in the fridge!) and roasted squash.. it all just makes me feel so cozy. Right now, its apple season, so I thought that I would celebrate by sharing this delicious fall treat – stuffed baked apples.

Every fall we go to our favourite local farmer’s market, Pingle’s Farm to get all of our seasonal fruits and veggies for Thanksgiving and baking. If you’re local, they also have the most amazing fudge, a pumpkin patch, corn maze and pick your own seasonal fruit/veggies. If pick your own isn’t your thing, they also sell their produce in their market.

We always pick up a few different kinds of apples from their for our seasonal baking, I haven’t been apple picking in a few years but it’s definitely something I would love to make time for this year. One thing that is so great about apples, especially if you’re picking buckets full, is that they stay fresh for so long! Seriously, when you go strawberry picking I feel like you have to use them up so quickly otherwise they will go bad.

Apple crisp has always been of my favourite sweet treats of the season – aside from pumpkin pie of course! For this recipe, I was inspired by one of our favourite fall dinner recipes, stuffed green peppers.  Anyways, let’s get on to the recipe! Below are a few more photos to help you visualize the process!

Ingredients
  1. 4 Apples
  2. 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  3. 1 Tsp ground cinnamon
  4. 1 Tsp Butter
  5. 1 Cup oats
  6. 1/4 Cup apple cider
  7. Caramel sauce
  8. Maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Cut the top off the apples and hollow them out. I found it was easiest with a cantaloupe spoon.
  2. In a large bowl mix together mix together the chopped apple, butter, cinnamon, oats, and brown sugar together.
  3. Pour in as much apple cider, caramel sauce and maple syrup as you'd like.
  4. Stuff the apples with the mix, and preheat the oven to 320F.
  5. Place the apples in a casserole dish and pour the rest of the apple cider in - it's okay if it is in the bottom of the pan.
  6. Bake them for 40 minutes – 1 hour. You may need to adjust baking times depending on how many you are making.
  7. Garnish with ice-cream, caramel sauce, and maple syrup if desired! Serve warm & enjoy :)

And there you have it! These are best served when they are fresh, I found that they can go a little soggy over night so it’s generally a good idea to make these the same day you intend to serve them. Just something to keep in mind!

PS – you know that saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Well, it’s totally legit. Did you know that apples are high in antioxidants, fiber and can aid in reducing your risk for various diseases such as cancer, reducing the risk of strokes, promoting good heart health and lowering your cholesterol? If you don’t believe me then check out this blog post from Well Being Secrets. I was seriously shocked at all the health benefits apples have I was researching them! #EatAllTheApples.

    These look so good!  I may just have to forget making coffee cake tomorrow and opt for this instead.  Yeowzers!

  • This sounds so good and I love the idea of baking them in apples.

  • this looks super yummy!! I’ll have to try this soon, my Mister would love it!

  • Hahahahaha, we used to do a version of this at a campfire! Cut the core out of apples, fill with sugar, cinnamon and anything else, wrap in tinfoil, toss it in the hot parts of the fire for a little while. Take out, be super careful unwrapping and getting it on a plate and you have super easy no crust apple pie basically! Although this oven version looks good too… Must get job… so I can make these excessively!
