The hardest part in making baked apples with walnuts and honey is waiting for it to be out of the oven while your kitchen smells of apples and cinnamon. 🙂

- Apples - red apples are excellent for making this baked apple recipe. Skip the green ones because they are too tangy for this treat.
- Honey - I suggest using mild-flavored honey so it does not overpower the taste of the apples.
- Cinnamon powder - just use your favorite brand.
- Butter - I usually use unsalted butter when making baked apples, but you can use salted butter if that's what you have on hand.
- Walnuts - chopped roughly.
- Raisins - you can skip it if you're not a fan, but feel free to add a bit more if you want to use them for serving.
Start preparing your baked apples by preheating the oven to 200°C (375°F).
Combine the melted butter with honey.
Add cinnamon powder and mix with a whisk.
Peel, core, and slice the apples thinly. For reference, I typically slice a medium-sized apple into fourteen portions.
Place the apple slices in a bowl and pour the honey and butter mixture.
Add the raisins.
Mix everything gently while trying to coat all apple slices.
Transfer everything into a baking dish.
Add some crushed walnuts on top.
Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
Place the apples with walnuts in the middle of the oven for thirty minutes.
Remove the aluminum foil and continue baking the apples for about ten more minutes.
Take the baking dish out of the oven and cool for ten minutes.
Transfer your baked apples with walnuts into plates.
If preferred, serve with some whipped cream, plus more walnuts or raisins on top of the baked apples.
- Other dried fruits. Sultanas and dried cranberries can also be used instead of raisins.
- Molasses. If you cannot find any honey, molasses is an excellent substitute; it will not overpower the natural sweetneess of the baked apples.
How do I serve these baked apples?
Serve it with some whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
Even better, when the baked apples are still warm --- you'll see the cream starting to melt. Just yum.
Oh! Make sure you pour that buttery-syrup goodness from the bottom of the baking dish into the apples when serving!
Looks so easy, right? So, try this apples with walnuts and honey recipe one of these days --- you will not regret it. 🙂
