Sweet and Tangy Baked Apples

As this blog has clearly illustrated, I love baking with apples – today, I decided to bake some apples!

I do like sweets, but I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, so I often like to mix sweet and tangy. For this recipe, I decided to use some apple cider vinegar (if you want more sweet, and no tang – just substitute the apple cider vinegar with apple juice or apple cider).

I’m home, mostly (I think a teenager holed up, upstairs, doesn’t really count as being home when me. I barely see her!), alone, so I decided to just bake 2 apples. If you choose to do more, just double, triple, whatever the ‘stuffing’ ingredients.

I started by coring two apples (by the way, I just got this apple corer and I LOVE it!).

Then I worked on the ‘filling’ or ‘stuffing’. I kept it pretty simple – I just used butter, nuts (I only had walnuts, but would like to try pecans!), raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup.

I mixed everything, except the maple syrup, to get it all incorporated, first. Then I mixed in the syrup.

I put the cored apples in a small baking dish, with some apple cider vinegar in the bottom.

I filled the centers of the apples with the filling.

I, then, cooked the apples in a 400 degree oven for one hour.

The filling mixes in with the apple cider and makes a wonderful ‘sauce’ of sorts. When serving, feel free to spoon it over the apples.
