Readers, Digest: Cinnamon baked apples

Enjoy an apple stuffed with apples for dessert. Photo credit: Christina Saschin

Baking a whole apple pie just for your roommate and yourself is not practical. This apple dessert works great as a single serving and gives you the ability to play with different flavors.

I got the idea for making individual baked apples because I like miniaturizing desserts, like with cupcakes. All you need for this recipe is an apple, brown sugar and cinnamon.

Do not let the fact that you are baking for a small number of people deter you. Just use your creativity.

Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 1 serving
1 apple
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar


Heat oven to 375 F.

Using a sharp knife, carefully cut off the top of the apple. Use a spoon to remove the core. Continue to scoop out the apple and create a hollow space in the middle.

Once you have hollowed out the apple, separate the pieces that can be eaten from the core.

Chop the usable pieces and put them in a small bowl. Add cinnamon and brown sugar, then mix together.

Transfer the apple coated in cinnamon and brown sugar into the hollowed apple.

Put the filled apple on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Cover the apple lightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
