Slow-Baked Apples Recipe

Slow-Baked Apples Recipe

This is one of my favorite dishes to make, primarily because it is so versatile! There’s nothing quite like the comfort of cinnamon buttered apples in the fall.

Cozy up on the couch with your favorite rom-com, that giant chunky-knit blanket, and a bowl of homemade vanilla ice-cream with these slow-baked apples spooned on top and you’re all set for a relaxing fall evening!

It’s an easy dish to make for a quick addition to a meal, and it’s even easy to make in bulk and freeze for later. I like to make them in bulk and freeze them, so that I can serve them as a side dish or dessert when delivering meals to friends and families in our church during good times (like having babies and bringing adopted kiddos home) and during hard times too (post surgeries, or during grief and loss).

If you have a large family, definitely consider making these in bulk during apple season and storing up for the year ahead!


Slow-Baked Apples

350 degrees | 30-45 minutes | yields: 4-6 servings

  • 6 Medium Apples (cored/peeled/sliced)

  • 1/4 C Brown Sugar

  • 1 TSP Cinnamon

  • 1/4 TSP Nutmeg

  • 3-4 TBSP Butter

  • Pinch of Salt

Set oven temperature to 350 degrees. Core, peel, and slice your apples. Add all ingredients except butter to a bowl and combine. Pour contents of bowl into a baking dish. Cut each TBSP of butter and lay on top of the apples in the dish. Cover the dish (glass lid or aluminum foil will do) and bake for 30-45 minutes, until apples can be cut with a spoon. Enjoy!
