Baked Apples For Two

This is a nostalgic recipe for me. It is one that my husband and I would make when it was just the two of us. Just starting out with our first apartment, we were so excited to cook together.

I am not sure how we started to make this, but it has stayed in our autumn dessert rotation over the years. I remember not long after the first time we made these, I went thrifting and found the cutest pair of apple baking dishes (I show them further down). I’ve kept them all these years and we still use them.

Of course you can double up the ingredients if you need to make more than just two. If you use large apples, you can split one. I share one with my son and it is just enough, especially after adding vanilla ice cream on the side!

Oh, and I have included more fall inspiration at the end of this post! You will love what my fellow bloggers have to share for this Fall Blog Hop.

Gather Ingredients

Remove Apple Cores

After you remove the cores, place in a baking dish. A Pyrex casserole dish works well, especially when you need to make enough for a group.

Fill Apples With Ingredients

Bake for at least 30 minutes. Depending on your oven and apple size, this may take longer.

Serve With Vanilla Ice Cream

So yummy and easy. A perfect last minute dish for company.


2 Large apples

1/8 Cup brown sugar to split between apples

1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon to split between apples

2 Teaspoons butter to split between apples

A few walnuts to sprinkle inside ( I use candied walnuts from Trader Joe’s)


  1. Remove cores from apples. I used a paring knife and spoon but you can use an apple corer if you like.
  2. Place apples in baking dish.
  3. Fill apples with ingredients. The butter should melt down and make pan greased. Some recipes have you leave the bottoms intact and add about 3/4 cup of boiling water to the pan.
  4. Bake at preheated 375 for 30 to 45 minutes.
  5. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whip cream if you like.

  1. Oh my gosh, these sound so yummy. I was going to buy apples at the supermarket today but opted for oranges. I just might have to go back tomorrow and buy some to make these.

  2. So yummy! My mom always made baked apples when I was a kid. That’s what this reminds me of. I will have to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing and bringing back a sweet memory. ๐Ÿ™‚
