Made this with soya milk and it was amazing! Thanks for posting-30 Aug 2013
Love it, now make it regularly. Use slightly less sugar-30 Sep 2016
I made a few changes but what an easy and comforting dish! I used my crockpot and just loaded it full of sliced apples ( I think I used 8-10), peels on, mixed in the other ingredients and then added about 1/4 cup of apple cider in place of the milk. I figured the 1/2 cup might be too much! I put it on high and in a few hours I had a fantastic dessert that the whole family loved! We ate it warm with some cool whip on top, since I didn't have any ice cream! I will make this again!-25 Sep 2007
Low-Calorie Baked Apples
You cannot have enough ways to enjoy fresh apples when autumn hits. It's the best fruit of the season and they're everywhere. If you're looking for an easy way to use up your apple stash or just in need of a quick and tasty dessert, this baked apple recipe is perfect.
This isn't a recipe for baked apple crisp with a crunchy sweet topping. It's actually much easier than that. These are simply baked apples that are cored and filled with a bit of a sweet mixture of raisins, brown sugar, and warm cinnamon. It's a healthy dessert with very little sugar and it will fill your home with the most inviting aroma.
Granny Smith apples are the best baking apples and recommended for this recipe. They will hold their shape, remain firm, and won't get mushy when baked. Plus, their tart flavor is a nice complement to the sweet filling. If you don't have them on hand, use whatever apples you have. If you have a choice, lean toward a tarter baking apple rather than a super sweet apple.
Finally, this is a great dessert for just one or two people. At one apple per person, the baked apple mixture amounts can easily be reduced (or increased) to the number of people you are planning on serving. If you like, feel free to add crushed walnuts to the raisin and sugar mixture. They will lend some protein and texture to the filling.

How to Make Baked Apples
This recipe takes only a few minutes to prep. Here’s all you need to do:
Choose Your Apples: For this recipe, I used small organic Gala apples. During the baking process, they baked down perfectly soft on the inside but still kept their shape. Fuji apples would work well, too. Granny Smith (green) apples are tart and work, too, but you may want to add another tablespoon of maple syrup to balance the flavors. There are hundreds of varieties of apples available, feel free to sub in your favorite variety. A fun thing to do with kids (and adults!) is buy a few varieties, some sweet, some more tart, and do a “baked apple taste test” to taste them side-by-side to start to understand the different flavors of different varieties.
Core the Apples: You’ll need to core your apples so they can hold all the yummy filling. To do this, cut off the very top of your apple. Then use a small melon baller or a pairing knife to carefully remove the seeds and the core while keeping the apple’s outside (and bottom) intact.
Stuff the Apples: Spoon the oatmeal filling into the apples and then add them to a dish. As I mentioned above, if you happen to have some healthy homemade granola on hand, you can use 1/2 cup of that to subsitute the filling as it’s almost the same thing. For the liquid, use ¾ cup of filtered water or unprocessed natural apple cider if you have some on hand that you need to use up. The liquid will prevent the apples from drying out and sticking to the pan.
Bake the Apples: Bake the apples for 45 minutes. Halfway through, baste them with their pan juices to keep them juicy and tender.
Top and Serve the Apples: These beauties taste best warm from the oven. I like to top them off with a dollop of my delicious homemade coconut whipped cream and a small sprinkle of cinnamon. Your favorite vanilla ice cream would also be wonderful on top. Vegan ice cream has come a long way in the past few years and you can easily find some at your local natural grocery store if you want to keep this vegan and/or dairy-free.

Baked Apples Recipe & Video
You don't see many recipes these days for Baked Apples. Maybe it's considered an old fashioned dessert, but it is so good and so easy to make, that I think it deserves more attention. A Baked Apple is just that. An unpeeled apple with its cavity filled with a mixture of brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and chopped nuts. It is baked until its skin has become soft and wrinkled, while inside its flesh is wonderfully tender. Pour a little of the juices that have accumulated in the bottom of the pan over the apple and serve hot from the oven, at room temperature, or even cold. Lovely with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, custard, or lightly sweetened yogurt.
All you need for Baked Apples are apples, any firm textured type will do. Don't peel the apples, just remove the core. You can do this with a knife, but an apple corer makes the job much easier. Then fill the cavity with a mixture of brown sugar and ground cinnamon. I like to also add some chopped nuts, or you could add other things like raisins, currants, dried cranberries, dried dates, or even figs. Then place the apples in a pan, pour enough apple juice (or cider), water, or even wine to cover the bottom of the pan, and bake until the apples are soft, puffed, and the skins look a little shriveled. Insert a sharp knife or toothpick into the flesh of the apple to make sure it is tender. Then remove from oven, place the apple on a plate, pour a little of the juices from the bottom of the pan over the apple, and serve. Enjoy.
Baked Apples: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). You will need a 9 inch (23 cm) square or round pie pan.
Core the apples and place in your pan.
In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, ground cinnamon, and chopped nuts. With a small spoon, evenly fill the cavity of each apple with the sugar mixture. Pour enough apple juice (or water) into the bottom of the pan until it is about 1/4 inch (.5 cm) deep.
Bake in preheated oven for about 3 0 to 60 minutes or until the apples are tender when pierced with a toothpick. Add more apple juice or water to the bottom of the pan if needed. While still warm, place the baked apples on your serving plate. Pour some of the syrup from the bottom of the pan over each apple. Serve with vanilla ice cream or softly whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate leftovers. Reheat before serving.

I was in New England a few weeks ago, at the height of apple picking season. I'm guessing they're all down now, but our apples here in Northern California are at their peak. There are so many great varieties in the market to choose from!
We first posted this recipe in 2006, during another trip east to visit my goddaughter and her family. A gang of us went apple picking and came home with so many we spent a week cooking them into pies, crisps, and these fabulous baked apples.
The girls and I used Rome Beauties, a variety of apple that is particularly well suited for baking this way. We based our recipe on one from the Joy of Cooking, with butter and brown sugar, and we fancied it up a bit with chopped pecans and raisins.
Growing up we always had baked apples served with a generous portion of vanilla ice cream, a combination I highly recommend.

my friend really enjoyed this recipe even though they aren't dessert people
This is a nice light dessert for winter. I didn't include any ice cream or whipped cream, but I think this stands on its own. The cloves and lemon give the dish some nice layers of flavor.
I didn't think this recipe tasted as remarkable as it sounds. It might be better with some doctoring to the sauce.
Nice baked apples. I used brandy instead of rum and they were lovely. Vanilla ice-cream is not a must, but my husband likes them with it.
Very yummy and simple! A scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side and it was the perfect light dessert to a big meal.
Made this last night-cooked it in the microwave for 10 minutes. Great-especially on a cold, damp evening. I added a few chopped nuts and raisins in the filling and doubled the syrup mixture. Will def. make again
