Maple Baked Apple

A lightning-quick dessert for times when you're on your own and want something with just the right amount of sweet.
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp raisins, dried cranberries, or dried currants
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 medium tart apple
 1.  In a small bowl, combine first six ingredients.  Core apple and peel the top third.  Place in a small microwave-safe dish.  Fill apple with walnut mixture.  Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3-4 minutes or until apple is tender.  Serve warm.

 Robyn's notes: I used a Jonagold apple--they're good for baking because they hold their shape well.  This was really quite good, except that I can't eat a couple of the ingredients.  Watch me demonstrate this recipe--and how to core an apple without a corer--on youtube!

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
