 "House" Baked Apples

There is nothing my dear husband likes better than a tasty apple dessert.  His favourite is apple pie, but well . . .  you don't always have the time to bake a pie do you?

 "House" Baked Apples

Sometimes you just want something apple-like and tasty without all the faffing about of rolling out pastry and then there is the wait . . .  for it to bake, to cool down enough to cut, etc.  

Have I ever told you patience isn't one of my virtues?  Well, you know it now . . .


"House" Baked Apples 

 Enter  "House" baked apples.  One of my favourite go to quick apple desserts. 

 "House" Baked Apples

Simple and quick to throw together and oh so very delicious to eat . . . with all of the comforts of a crumble minus all of the work of having to rub a topping together, and in truth, you don't really miss it.  

 You get succulent  baked sliced of apple, all  sweet and buttery and nicely spiced . . . mixed with the moreish crunch of toasted flaked almonds . . . not to mention the additional textures and flavours of sweet sultana raisins and coconut! 

"House" Baked Apples

The smell when it's baking is almost more than you can bear . . . it smells so wonderfully homey and comforting . . . It's a good thing it cooks rather quickly!   

You can have this on the table in less than half an hour and I can assure you all will be smacking their lips in anticipation!   

We like to call them "House" baked apples . . . coz that's just the way we do them in this house!  Enjoy!!

  3. I do these all the time, nothing more simple and tasty! At the moment I'm doing a whole 30 (paleo eating) and this has just reminded me to make this tasty treat. All I do to make it whole 30 compliant is use ghee instead of butter and leave out the sugar : )
