Simple Baked Apple: a Recipe by quornflour

Yesterday, at work we were talking about apple strudel, which then lead to a conversation about how easy it is to make. There are a number of ways to make them; one of my favorite ways is super simple and simply delicious. It is also a great recipe because you can easily make it for one person and for many.

Listed below is for one large apple but can easily also be used for two small apples.

You will need:

  • 1 large apple
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of butter
  • 1/8th teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ¼ cup of “old fashioned” oats

If you are making this for just one or two people you can bake them in an oven safe mug, ramekin or other small oven safe dish. Here I used a small glass oven safe Pyrex dish. If you are making this for a larger number of people you can also put them together in a baking pan.

  1. Heat your oven to 400°
  2. In a bowl combine butter, sugar and cinnamon until completely mixed

  1. Add oats

  1. Core your apple, if you do not have an apple corer you can use a basic peeler if it does not have a guard on it
  2. Place your apple in the baking dish

  1. Pack the sugar, butter, oat mix into the hole, any remainder can go around it

  1. Bake for about 45 minutes to an hour (it will depend on the size of the apple) – basically you want to bake it until the apple is soft enough to poke with a bamboo skewer without much force

Enjoy warm. You can also top with ice cream or brie cheese.
