Lemon Baked Apples

Categories: Entertaining, Sweet
Type: Desserts and Baked Goods

Rome apples are a slightly softer apple than what's commonly used for baking. Their mild flavor is enhanced by the lemon and maple syrup!

Serves: One apple per serving.


  • 4 Rome apples
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup mixed dried figs and apricots
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Grated rind of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Pat of butter
  • 1 cup boiling water

  1. Core the apples, being careful not to pierce the bottoms.
  2. Mix the walnuts, dried fruit, lemon juice, and rind together. Pour enough maple syrup over this to moisten well, about 2 tablespoons.
  3. Fill the apples with this, but don't pack the filling in too tightly. If the filling mounds at the top of the apple, that's okay. Put a generous pat of butter on top of the filling, place apples in a glass baking dish, and pour 1 cup boiling water into the dish, around the apples.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the apples are tender. During the baking time, you can baste the apples with the pan juices.
  5. When the apples are done, remove to a serving dish, transfer the liquid to a small skillet, and reduce. Spoon over the apples before serving.
