Baked Apples

There are many fancy ways to bake apples, but I find all of them too much and not like my mother used to bake. This should be really simple. I make these at the last minute when I have apples and remember that the kids love them. You can core the apples but I don’t bother.

Makes 4


  • 4 Fuji Apples (or whatever you have)
  • 2 Tablespoons Cloves
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon and/or Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1/2 Cup Light Red Wine or Apple Juice
  • Vanilla Ice Cream (preferable homemade)


  • Baking Dish
  1. Pre Heat the oven to 375.
  2. Stick cloves in the apples, arranging about 12 evenly in each.
  3. Place in baking dish. I try to use a dish that just holds them.
  4. Dust with cinnamon. If you have cinnamon sticks, wedge one each in the top of the apples.
  5. Pour the wine or apple juice around the base of the apples.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the apples are soft.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.
  8. Remove the cloves and serve with a scoop of ice cream.
