Stuffed Baked Apples Recipe

I love plain baked apples. Stuffing apples with mix of dried apricots, raisins, apple pieces, seasoned with sugar and lemon juice and then baking them is a step up to plain baked apples.

Depending on apples, baking time will differ, you want to get apples soft but not too soft to lose their form.

Serve stuffed baked apples warm from the oven, reheated in microwave or cooled down as a dessert or snack. They also work nicely as a breakfast.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: if apricots or raisins are very dry, you can soak them in hot water for few minutes and drain water before proceeding:
