Baked fruit is often overlooked for dessert. Fruit is sweet as is, but when baked the natural sweetness intensifies. Baked apples are a delicious dessert. Simply remove the core, stuff with your favorite filling, and bake!

Using a dry-cook method, like baking, will break down the cell walls of the fruit and result in water loss from being exposed to heat. Be mindful of the cooking time. Too long, the fruit will become too mushy and mealy.

When creating a recipe for a single serving, there is no need to complicate the cooking technique with too many ingredients. If cooking for one, keep it simple!

Add water to a small oven-safe baking dish and place the stuffed apple on top.
