Mom’s Baked Apple Slices

2013 May 22

Super Easy Baked Apple Recipe


Hello friends,

I made some baked apple slices today and I thought I would share the recipe with you.

These baked apples are so quick and easy to make. They cook in the microwave in only 2 minutes. They are perfect for an afternoon snack, my daughter loves them. If you want the apples really mushy then just cook a bit longer. I like mine to have a teeny tiny bit of firmness.

This recipe makes one serving, but you could easily increase the amounts to make more. From start to finish it only took me 5 minutes to make, and that included taking pictures. I hope you enjoy!

    I tried these with honeycrisps and the result was watery mush. Anyone else have this issue?

      Hi Rachel,
      Sorry you ended up with watery mush. The problem is most likely the type of apple you used. Honeycrisp is known to make watery applesauce. I have used gala and golden delicious with excellent results. If you ever try again I hope you have better luck. Thanks for leaving a comment, it might help someone else.

    I’m going to try this but with Granny Smith (my favorite apple and typically used for apple pie)!

    Can this be made in the crock pot instead? I want to try this out in my classroom, and a crock pot would be easier to use in the classroom.

      Yes you can make in a crock pot. Adjust the amount of apples you will need for the class size. Here is an example
      12 golden delicious apples or apples of choice
      ½ cup brown sugar
      ½ tsp. cinnamon
      ½ cup water
      1 Tbsp. lemon juice
      Butter optional

      Wash, Peel, Core, Slice the apples. Toss with the lemon juice. Add all to the crock pot. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or until the apples are soft.

      Good luck and thank you for the question!

    I’m going to try this today. Can this be baked in the oven instead of the microwave. Thank you.

      Hello Tanya,

      I’ve never tried cooking in the oven, but I don’t see why you can’t. I would try at 350 degrees until the apples are soft and bubbling. Good luck!

    I just tried these with Granny Smith apples using your exact instructions and they came out tender crisp, delicious
    and so easy! I’m going to use them in apple, walnut overnight oats.

      What a great idea to use them in apple overnight oats. Thanks for your comment I’m going to have to try that myself.

    I just made this recipe and spooned it around a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt. It was delish! So easy. I will be making this again!

      We are so happy you liked it. Adding a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt sounds delicious!

    Wait, the picture shows the Apple cut up but with the skins on. I thought it mentioned to peel the apples? Unless that photo was taken and used because it just looks better like that? Confusing. Thanks.

      Hello Patti,

      I’m sorry for the confusion. I peeled the apples after I used the slicer on them. I did use the picture because I thought it looked good. Thank you for the comment and question. -Tamara
