Baked Apples

One of my favorite things to see cooking when I was growing up were baked apples.  Contrary to their name, they're not actually baked - they're cooked in a frying pan!  When I was little I would sneak into the kitchen while these were cooking and steal the apples with the most brown sugar on them.  In all honestly, that's half the fun of making these - the snacking.

5 large apples (I used gala)
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Peel, core, and slice apples.  Add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a large pan and stir until apples are coated.

Cook on medium for 15 or so minutes, stirring every few minutes, until apples are cooked through.

They're seriously good.  I especially like them served with pork.  Mmmmm...


  1. Girrrrrl how do you have the time to make such a spread for dinner?! It took me 2 hours last night to make CHICKEN NUGGETS. Gah!

  2. Oh yum! Those look so good. I always used to want them from Cracker Barrel and you just made me crave them again!

    1. Oh my gosh...I'd forgotten about them at Cracker Barrel. That's one of the things I miss the most up here in Boston. The closest one is 40 minutes away. These taste just like them, but are probably 10 times better for you. No butter needed. :)

  3. WOW Lauren. You make food look soooo good. I can't wait to try this. Bill really likes baked apples and pork. I never have made apple to go with pork. Sounds so very good. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Faye! They're sooooo good! I have an Honey Mustard/Apple marinade for a pork tenderloin that I bet Bill would LOVE then!
