  • 2 medium apples (such as Gala, Jonagold, Fuji or Honeycrisp)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1/4 cup boiling water


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Rinse and dry the apples. Using a sharp knife or an apple corer, cut out the cores, leaving the bottom 1/2-inch of the apples intact and creating a well roughly 1-inch wide.
  • Mix the brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Divide this mixture between the two apples, packing the mixture into the wells firmly.
  • Arrange the apples in a small baking dish, and top each apple with 1/4 tablespoon of butter.
  • Pour the hot water into the bottom of the dish.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the apples are cooked through and tender.
  • Remove the apples from the oven and spoon the juices from the dish over the apples.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.


Expert Tips
  • Use a spoon or an apple corer to remove the seeds from the middle of the apples.
  • Baking time might be a little longer if you use large apples. To test for doneness, stick a fork into the thickest part of the apple and if it's not firm any longer, the apples are ready.
