Baked Apples with Rum!

This recipe is a win win for us! Murray ( my husband) loves Baked Apples & Rum so when I saw this recipe on the Bon Appetit site I knew I had to make this!

The recipe on Bon Appetite is Baked Apples with Dates, Almonds and Rum

I only baked 2 apples so I just reduced the recipe ingredients accordingly & made a couple changes to the ingredients since I didn’t have


3 tbsp melted butter, you will use 2 tbsp first hen set theater aside

2 tbsp orange juice

2 tbsp rum

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg yolk

1 tbsp milk

1/2 tsp powdered ginger

1 tsp flour

1/4 cup almonds… I used slivered almonds but you can chop up almonds

3 dates, chopped

2 apples


Preheat oven to 350f

and I used one loaf pan for 2 apples

  1. Mix the butter, juice & rum together in the baking dish, stir well
  2. Mix the egg yolk, milk, ginger, flour, 2 tsp melted butter together. Add the almonds and dates and combine well
  3. Use a melon baller or small spoon if you don’t have a melon baller & scoop out the core of the apple but do not go all the way through the bottom of the apple. Take a vegetable peeler or paring knife and remove about one inch of the peel around the top of the apple. set aside
  4. Stuff the nut mixture into the cavity of the apple packing it down
  5. Put the apples into the baking dish
  6. Brush the top of the apples with the reserved melted butter
  7. Bake in the pre-heated oven until the apples are soft, I like apples really soft so I cooked these for a long time! Baste the apples with the juice from the pan often!
  8. You can cover the pan with foil if it is browning before the apples are cooked

Let cool before serving, I served these apples with a bit of whipped cream on the side

going in the oven
finished baking !
