Bratapfel (German Baked Apples)

By Nikki Sheriff

It doesn't matter that you can't pronounce this wonderful German dessert. The flavor will win you over from the first bite.

Bratapfel (German Baked Apples)
  • 4 medium Braeburn apples

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  • 2 TBS raisins

  • 3 TBS coconut oil, melted

  • 1 1/2 TBS honey

  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Grease the bottom of a 8x8 baking dish.

  3. Cut a circle in the top of the apples about 1 1/2 inches wide. Scoop out the top circle and continue scooping down only 3/4 the way of the apple, trying to keep the 1 1/2 inch measurement the whole way.

  4. Mix the remaining ingredients, and scoop them equally between the 4 apples.

  5. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes, or until the apples are at the desired tenderness. Do not over cook or the apples will be mushy.

  6. Cut apples in half and serve.

This looks very similar to something my mother made for us when we were little. Can't wait to try this!

There are 4 apples but they are cut in half before serving.
Each person gets half and apple = 8 servings.
