Classic Baked Apple

You will Need:

1 large cooking apple, washed and cored
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons raisins
1 tablespoon butter

* Preheat oven to 375 degrees
* Cut a 1 1/2-inch circle of skin off the top of the apple, and also
    slit the skin around the apple for expansion while baking.
* Mix the brown sugar and raisins.
* Place apple in a small ovenproof dish.
* Fill cored opening with the sugar and raisin mixture, then top with butter.
*  Pour enough water into the pan to come halfway up the side of the apple.
*  Bake the apple for around 45 minutes, or until soft.

The weather's been cool today, and I've been craving apple pie.
So, I'm going to bake some apples instead. 
I think I'll use some brown sugar subsitute in place of the real brown sugar.

We finally got nice cool weather today. Dare I say there is even a chill in the air? It's been so hot here that I didn't think Fall was ever going to show up. I'm hoping it stays this way.

If so, baking yummy things like your apples will surely be in the picture.

Hi Mumzie - baked goodies make welcome treats at the office, or when given to neighbors. Some shelters or food banks happily accept them as well.

Take care and Happy Baking,

Hi Yvonne, How simple this sounds, and yet is probably sooooo good. I bought apples this week and may have one tomorrow. I am craving sweets. Again! hugs, Sue
