Baked Apple

This is definitely tasty. It’s healthy enough for breakfast but sweet enough as a dessert as well. I tried this out with oatmeal and it was great. Couple that with Eggs Benedict and my husband’s tongue was elated and his belly stuffed.
Not the best picture.

I found this recipe floating around on Pinterest and was taken to HollyandRose blog. Below I included, from her website, a better picture of this delicious dessert… I mean breakfast.

The recipe follows:

Baked Apples

Ingredients:

2 red delicious apples (I used whatever apple I had on hand)
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp butter
A dash of cinnamon (ha-like 10 dashes)
2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
4 tbsp water
Tool: apple corer (I don’t have one so I just used a paring knife to cut out the guts and my apple broke into two halves. No big deal.)

Directions:

1. Place walnuts on a small baking sheet and bake in the oven at 350°C for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove from oven and set aside.

2. Peel and core apples placing them on the same baking sheet. Combine melted butter, cinnamon and brown sugar with walnuts. Fill the centre of each apple with the mixture. Add water to the bottom of the baking sheet. Place in the oven at 350°C for 30 minutes or until soft.

(I don’t really like buying special tools to make one recipe so I just adapted it to what I had on hand. Because my apples were broken into two halves, I used some ramekins to pin the apple together on a small baking sheet and then added the water. They turned out just dandy.)

I served it on top of bowl of already prepared oatmeal and it was deliciously sweet breakfast.

Good Luck!

Introduction

Hello fellow good-food lovers,

Glad you made it to my page. I wanted to make a food blog to consolidate all the tasty recipes that I have had the joy to prepare. I was inspired by the idea because I just love looking at other people’s food blogs and thought what a better way to be able to share great recipes! I have collected an assorted variety of recipes mostly from other websites. I just love the internet! Also, at our church the potlucks are usually fantastic…if you know whose food to eat. 😉  So, I have asked my friends on Facebook that have been to our potlucks whose recipes they would like to know and mixed with a bunch of my tried and true recipes, this blog was created.
I’m not trying to eliminate conversations between these ‘fans-of-your-food’ and you, actually I’m hoping quite the opposite.  We need to stop making excuses for buying boxed, already prepared food and get back in the kitchen. (I do understand if it’s quick and easy and you don’t have time, I just hope that you see it’s not that hard to put a little effort in this area.) Invite some people over and enjoy the pleasant looks on their faces at your mad cooking skills. Now, get cooking!
