Baked Stuffed Apples
You can serve these baked apples as a warm dessert with some vanilla ice cream or along with some coffee cake for breakfast.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- 4 large tart baking apples
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- Optional: 4 teaspoons orange zest, grated
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ cup golden seedless raisins
- 4 teaspoons frozen orange juice concentrate
- 4 teaspoons butter
- ½ cup apple cider or juice
Wash the apples and remove the core and the stem, but don't peel them. Add the brown sugar, orange zest if using, and cinnamon to a small bowl; stir to mix.
Fill each apple with a tablespoon of raisins, a teaspoon of orange juice concentrate, and a generous tablespoon of the brown sugar mixture. Top the filling in each apple with a teaspoon of butter.
Pour the cider or juice into the slow cooker. Carefully place the apples upright in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours or until the apples are cooked through and tender.
Use tongs and a spatula to remove the apples to dessert plates. Serve warm.
