This month I’m showcasing fall favourites. It’s harvest season, and perhaps the most beautiful time of the year. Leaves are changing colour, apples are ready to be picked and pumpkins ready for carving. It also happens to be my birthday month 😉
This month the blog will be filled with seasonal recipes that feature all the quintessential fall flavours. Cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, cranberry, apple and so much more. Not to mention all of the recipes featured will be baked goods! Yes, I am venturing into unfamiliar territory and exploring the baker in me. I typically prepare savoury dishes, but decided to challenge myself for October. Recipes will range from simple to complex. Feel free to comment and share your own recipes as well!
Today’s recipe is extremely simple and fool-proof. Soft, warm baked apples. A childhood favourite of mine and makes for the perfect, after dinner snack.
4 Macintosh or Golden Delicious apples
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup Australian Lexia Raisins
1/4 cup brown sugar
teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1. Core apples about a 1/2 each deep and make 3/4 inch wide opening in each. Make sure seeds are removed.
2. In a bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, pecans and raisins. Incorporate well and stuff each apple with mixture. Add a dollop of butter on top of each apple.
3. Add apples to a glass baking pan with boiling water bath. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Apples should be tender but not applesauce.
Serve these babies with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
