Baked Apple


  • 2-3 tablespoon sliced almonds, or chopped walnuts
  • 4 tart eating apples, cored
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries or raisins
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon butter
  • 1-2 tablespoon water


1. Preheat the broiler to 375 degrees.

2. Dry meal the cut almonds in a substantial skillet just until they start to shade. Put aside in a dish.

3. With a sharp blade, cut an opening in the skin the distance around the waist of each one cored fruit. This will permit them to grow as they cook.

4. Place the fruits in a heating dish sufficiently huge to hold them. Stuff them with the dried foods grown from the ground. Shower them with the maple syrup, verifying that it gets into the emptied out center, and afterward put a nut of margarine on top of every one. Add the water to the base of the dish.

5. Heat in the focal point of the stove for 30-40 minutes or until the pieces of fruit are puffed up, delicate and caramelized on top. Give them a chance to cool for no less than 10 prior minutes serving. The pieces of fruit will crumple as they cool.

6. Serve sprinkled with the toasted almonds and with thick yogurt or dessert as an afterthought.

Modern culinary recipes normally consist of several components
The name (and often the locale or provenance) of the dish
How much time it will take to prepare the dish
The required ingredients along with their quantities or proportions
Necessary equipment and environment needed to prepare the dish
An ordered list of preparation steps
The number of servings that the recipe will provide (the "yield")
The texture and flavour
A photograph of the finished dish
Some recipes will note how long the dish will keep and its suitability for freezing. Nutritional information, such as calories per serving and grams of protein, fat, and carbohydrates per serving, may also be given.
Earlier recipes often included much less information, serving more as a reminder of ingredients and proportions for someone who already knew how to prepare the dish.
Recipe writers sometimes also list variations of a traditional dish, to give different tastes of the same recipes.
