Roasted Apples SRC

Pin It

When I decided to make this roasted apple dessert recipe,  I had a large bowl of apples sitting on my kitchen table starring me in the face. Because we were getting ready to go away for a week, I decided that I needed to use up the apples somehow.        

While looking at my Secret Recipe Club assignment for March, The Bitchin' Kitchin' authored by of Hoboken, New Jersey (  Ellie, I live nearby in Bucks County, Pa.), I was immediately attracted to her apple recipe to solve my problem.

I love The Secret Recipe Club because it gives me and my readers an opportunity to be introduced to other bloggers.

I really enjoyed looking through Ellie's blog . I found lots of wonderful recipes that use real food and fresh vegetables. I liked her relaxed writing style, excellent photos, and easy to follow step by step tutorials.
It's a blog worth visiting. I know I'll be regular.

Roasted apples might be a simple and easu recipe, but it was an absolutely delicious choice.  As Ellie said on her blog, " It's like apple pie without the crust" . Another plus  was the  fragrance of apples, cinnamon and allspice that permeated the entire house for the better part of the afternoon. It smelled so good.

This is Ellie's recipe .

 I substituted palm sugar for the brown sugar, left out the salt and didn't peel the apples ( they were organic).

I was pleased with the results and my husband was thrilled. He polished off a bowl before I finished this post.

  • 4 organic apples of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons palm sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • pinch ground allspice  
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Core and slice the apples. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Then mix with the palm sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, allspice . Dot with butter cubes and bake for 15-25 minutes depending on how you like your apples. I did 25 minutes . Serve warm or cold.

  1. Oh, how fabulous! There is nothing like the scent of spicy apples ... :)

  2. I can't believe it's SRC time again! I love simple apple dishes like this - it sounds just perfect.

  3. Yummy! I do something similar on the stove top! Try adding in some pears next time. YUM

  4. Hi Judee! Thanks for making my recipe. I loved these roasted apples and I'm so happy you did too!


  5. I can almost smell the deliciousness.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my Group 'A' SRC entry: Broiled Sushi.

  6. These are the most tempting apples, I have ever seen.

  7. I just might make these today. It would be nice to have a dessert that I don't feel guilty about :)

  8. those look great! I thought you'd end up with apple sauce, but that's clearly not the case. I'll need to remember this recipe.

  9. What a great idea! You could scoop them into a bowl and top with a dollop of yogurt and some granola, too. That would be a delicious breakfast!

  10. Somehow I always forget about baked apples as a side dish. I love them, as do my boys, so thanks for the reminder! Great choice!

  11. My Grandma used to make this for us when we were little. Total blast from the past! Yay SRC! I hope you'll stop by this month. Its artichoke month, and I'd love if you'd link up your artichoke recipes!

  12. anything with apples makes my mouth sing. i've done this same thing (sans cornstarch) more or less and put em on a pizza recently - love me some baked apples!

    happy src reveal from a group D member!

  13. Thanks for visiting Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. I'm so excited to be co-hosting this week! This looks awesome! I love apples. :)

  14. Found you through Katherines corner! Your newest follower!! Can you please post this lovely recipe on my Taste This Thursday party!?

  15. Thank you so much for sharing your great recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great Spring week end and come back to see me real soon!
