Baked Apples







After a day of long flight delays, all I want to do is eat a bowl of ice cream topped with warm baked apples. Something about freshly baked apples just comforts the soul– and that’s exactly what I need. San Francisco’s weather has been kicking my butt lately. All I wanted to do was get home in time so that I can visit my bestie tomorrow, but nope… apparently mother nature had other plans for me.

I’m really bummed that I won’t be going to Utah since I’m long overdue for a visit and I miss my BFF so ┬ádarn much. Plus, I had a bunch of baked goods to bring with me. Bahhh excuse my ranting. A 5 hour work day turned into 16 and I’m a bit tired.

I’ll get right to the point: Baked Apples. Warm. Cinnamon-y. Simple. Just as good eaten with a fork as it is served with ice cream. Bam.

Baked Apples


  • 3 fuji apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 420 degrees.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients (except for the last) together in a bowl until apples are evenly coated. Cube the butter and scatter on top of the apples.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
