How to Make an Easy Baked Apples Recipe

This recipe calls for:

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (plus extra for greasing)
  • 2 large large apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup, divided
  • 3/4 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a small baking dish with a little butter. Set aside.

In a large bowl, give the apple slices, cinnamon and a tablespoon of maple syrup a good stir.

Pour the sliced apples into the prepared baking dish.

Spread the apple mixture into an even layer and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, soft butter, and remaining maple syrup. Stir to combine thoroughly, then evenly spread the mixture on top of the apples.

Place in the pre-heated oven for a bake time of about 25 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender.

Remove the baked apple slices from the oven and cool for a couple minutes before serving.

To make this dessert extra special you might want to serve them warm and top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce or whipped cream

This does sound delish! I have almond flour and apples, I've been looking for a recipe and hadn't thought of using these ingredients together, along with maple syrup. Yum!

This sounds delicious. Cut a few strips of store-bought pie crust and cook over it and it would be like a little apple pie!
