How to Bake Apples

Learn how to make baked apples for a delicious, healthy dessert. You'll love the smell, too. Baking apples in the oven gives your kitchen a wonderfully warm, crisp scent. We'll show you how easy it is to create a baked apples dessert!

The heavenly aroma of baked apples is matched only by the amazingly sweet, caramel-like flavor of these easy treats. You can bake apples in four simple steps. We've also created a video on how to make a delicious recipe for baked apples so you can ensure success every time.

Step 1: Core the apples

Coring an apple before baking.

Start by cutting a slice from the stem end of the apple. Using an apple corer or a melon baller, remove the apple core, leaving the basin intact so it can contain the filling. Then peel a strip around the top of each apple.

Editor's Tip: Be sure to choose a good baking apple variety, such as Braeburn, Jonagold, Granny Smith, or Jonathan. They hold up best during cooking. Look for them at the supermarket or your local apple orchard.

Step 2: Set apples in baking dish

Place apples in a baking dish or in individual custard cups. (If necessary, remove a thin slice from the bottom of each apple so it sits flat.)

Step 3: Spoon mixture into apples

Spoon cooked fruit or your favorite filling into the center of each apple. Remember to pour a liquid such as apple juice, orange juice, or fruit nectar around the apples to help soak up flavor during baking. Don't have juice? Water will do. See our baked apples recipes, below, if you need a jump start.

Step 4: Bake apples

Stuffed Baked Apples

Bake until apples are tender (about 40 minutes at 350 degrees F), basting occasionally with juice or water from baking dish. Cool slightly. Serve apples warm with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
