Nearly all leaves have already fallen from trees and the temperature goes often below zero at night. The season of fresh food is almost over, but apples are still good. We don’t usually make desserts, but now we lots of apples that have to be eaten. So we had baked apples after the dinner.
Wash the apples and remove the cores with apple corer. Mix some cinnamon with sugar (1-2tsp cinnamon with 1 dl sugar). Put the apples into a lightly greased oven proof dish and fill the holes with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Drizzle some molasses/syrup on the apples, if you use it. Put few tablespoons of water to the dish and bake in 200 Celsius degrees 30-45 minutes or until apples are very soft. Spoon some liquid from the dish on the apples once or twice during the baking. Serve with vanilla sauce or ice cream.
You can also put some crushed nuts or almonds, raisins or coconut flakes inside the apples.
