How to Bake Apples

Detailed instructions and a list of ingredients are included in the recipe that is provided below; however, before we get into the specifics, let’s go over the fundamentals:


Baked Apple Ingredients

You’ll need just four ingredients to make this easy baked apple recipe:

  • Apples: Choose a crisp, firm apple variety, such as Golden Delicious, Pink Lady, or Honeycrisp.
  • Brown sugar: Dark brown sugar lends warmth and sweetness to each baked apple.
  • Butter: Butter adds richness and flavor.
  • Cinnamon: The warm and cozy baked apples are spiced with ground cinnamon.
  • Salt: A pinch of salt takes the flavor up a notch, but it won’t make the baked apples taste salty.


How Do You Bake Apples? 

Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect when you make homemade baked apples:

  1. Remove the core of each apple, leaving a well.
  2. Stuff each apple with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Place the apples in a baking dish and top with butter.
  4. Bake until the sugar begins to caramelize and the apples are tender.


How Long Do You Bake Apples? 

In an oven preheated to 350 degrees F, the apples should be perfectly baked after 40-45 minutes (20 minutes covered with foil, 20-25 minutes uncovered). You’ll know they’re ready to remove from the oven when the sugar is caramelized and the apples are tender.


Serving Tip

These baked apples are the perfect dessert as-is. However, a scoop of vanilla ice cream is never a bad idea.


How to Store Baked Apples

Baked apples that have been left over can be kept in the refrigerator for up to four days if they are stored in an airtight container. Reheat in the oven in a light manner.

“Wonderful dessert,” raves Tomohiro Nakagawa. “I added white wine and raisins!”

“This recipe was delicious,” according to ladywillpower01. “I only had Cortland apples, so I cut down on the brown sugar to two teaspoons. This is now my go-to baked Apple recipe!”

“This recipe is very similar to how my mother used to make it,” says Lauren. “I used Granny Smith apples and the ingredients as written. I did, however, add an extra 10 minutes to the cooking time because I like a softer apple.”

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Using an apple corer, a melon baller, or a teaspoon, remove core from the top of each apple, making sure not to go all the way to the bottom, leaving about 1 ½ inches from the bottom of the apple.

Step 3

Put the sugar, cinnamon, and salt into a small bowl and stir them together until they are evenly distributed. Put the apples in a square baking dish that is 8 inches in diameter, and stuff each apple with two tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture.


Step 4

  1. Place one piece of butter on top of each apple, and then pour boiling water into the bottom of the dish until it reaches a depth of one quarter of an inch. Wrap in aluminum foil.


Step 5

Bake for twenty minutes in an oven that has been preheated. The sugar should begin to caramelize and the apples should be soft when poked with a paring knife, which should take another 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking the apples uncovered. Serve when still heated.
