We make this at least once per month. Very good! Kids love it!We don’t add any sugar or syrup because our apples are already sweet. We add only cinnamon. It makes the kitchen smell of apple pie. Thank you, Elise!
I made these and they are awesomely tasty and cooked just right!! Am definitely going to make these for when I have the munchies! Thank you for the recipe and I will try some of the others that I like too!
Great, Jeanie, I’m so glad you like them!
Made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious and I will definitely make it again.
Did you cover this at all? I have done something like this but covered it with plastic wrap and left the corner up to release the steam.
Hi Rosie, great question! I asked my mother how she does it and sometimes she doesn’t cover it, but mostly she covers it with plastic wrap, either leaving up a corner as you described, or poking holes into the plastic wrap to release the steam.
Made this in the oven, but will definitely be trying in the microwave tomorrow!!!
I love this recipe. Very easy to make. Thank you.
I am not a cook at all, I get that from my mother, lol! My mother loves baked apples and I wanted to attempt to make them. This looks like a recipe I may could handle. I know this is a dumb question, but I am one that needs exact measurements or I can even mess up this recipe! What would you consider a sprinkle of cinnamon? Like a pinch? Or like a teaspoon, tablesoon, ect.?
Hi Leslie, I would start with just a pinch, taste it, and add more to taste if you think it needs more.
We heap ours on top of our steel cut oats for breakfast! SO GOOD.
For all of you asking about the oven, I used the recipe shown above, the oven at 350° for 10-12 minutes and they came out great!
I wasn’t expecting a recipe this simple to work, but it DOES and these apples are DELICIOUS! I used Gala apples and some brown sugar, and they taste AMAZING!! Much quicker than baking them, and they taste just as good!
I got a bag of pink lady apples in my CSA box this week and I was looking for something unique to do with them. I saw this recipe and it wasn’t quite right. I saw your apple crisp recipe and that was closer but I’m out of rolled oats. I’ve made your baked apples and while they were very good I didn’t feel like fussing with coring and stuffing. Then it occurred to me. Sliced apples, maple syrup, and spiced as above but tossed with chopped pecans, dried cherries, and a bit of butter. Baked at 375f for 45 minutes. Thanks for the inspiration!
How do you cook this in oven [temp and time] if you choose to not micro wave?
Good question. No idea. Your guess is as good as mine. It’s a microwave recipe. ~Elise
I added a banana and some dried cranberries to it and served it over a waffle. It was great, simple to make and did the trick for a quick but nice desert.
I don’t have a microwave, how would I do them stovetop? They look sooooo good!
Good question. Steam them? That’s essentially what you are doing when you microwave them anyway. ~Elise
Hannah, this is a microwave search for apples. Try stove top search for cooked/steame apples and there will be a ton of variations. Good luck. FYI: the same goes for oven(baked) options. Tons of replies in the search. Hope you find one that works for you. Don’t be afraid to add things you like and have lime dried cranberries, blueberries, walnuts, ect.
This is SO good plain, with pouring cream or ice cream! Made either in mwo or on the stove. Play around with the sweetener and cinnamon and butter to your taste. Wonderful if you have excess fruit and don’t know what to do with them apples! Make lots; can be frozen. Also can be used in upside down cakes, or chopped roughly or finer depending if for use in cakes or muffins. Love. Thanks so much Elise; I even shared this on fb.
This was wonderful! I left the peels on our golden delicious and drizzled with sweetened condensed milk and a splash of almond extract. Delicious!
I used a Gala apple (left the peel on), 2 tsps NY pure maple syrup, a generous dusting of cinnamon, coarsely chopped pecans, and raisins. Five minutes in the microwave. Delicious over oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, or alone with a sprinkle of granola. I love this idea… Fast, easy, and delicious.
I have an 8 year old son and I am always looking for ways to making eating fruit fun. I had Red Delicious Apples sitting on my counter and thought I wonder if there is a way to make a nice sweet dish with them. I am so glad I found this site, we made them today for the first time. I cooked them in a non stick pan in the oven and it made our house smell so yummy. We are going to have them tonight with either Redi Wip or Vanilla Ice Cream…Can’t wait :)
I tried it this morning with a tablespoon of real maple syrup, cinnamon, sweet nutmeg and walnuts. I put it in the microwave for 5 minutes and it was amazing! We had it for breakfast but with some vanilla ice cream it would make a perfect dessert!
My husband loves my apple+cranberry crumble, but for my waistline, I don’t want to make it as often as he wishes. so this was a perfect compromise, at least for me.
I used to microwave apples chunks without any added sugar for healthy snack/dessert for my little children (and for me), but this is great. Still light and very tasty!
This time I used gala, and I added a splash of white wine (since I was out of my usual brandy) and a few tbsp of caramel (instead of maple syrup) which made lovely light syrup to coat apples. I had to cook much longer, but it came out gorgeous.
I love simple and delicious food. I became an instant fan of your site. Thanks for sharing the great collection of your recipes!
