Blooming Baked Apples

This is a delicious fall dessert that tastes like apple pie, but is really super easy to prepare. It’s one of my favourite desserts.

Prep Time: approximately 15 minutes          Yields: 2 servings


  • 2 crisp red apples (your choice)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 caramel candies


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut off the top of the apples.
  3. Scoop out the apple core.
  4. With a small knife, cut slits around the apple to create two, deep circles.
  5. Turn the apple over and cut sections all around on the apple’s skin; a blooming flower petal effect.
  6. Place apple in upright position.
  7. In a small bowl, microwave the brown sugar and butter until butter melts (about 10-15 seconds).
  8. Remove the bowl from the microwave.
  9. Add the flour and cinnamon to the mixture and stir well.
  10. Place apples in an ovenproof bake ware dish.
  11. Drop a caramel in each apple’s center.
  12. Spread the microwave mixture over the top of both apples.
  13. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
  14. Remove the baked apples onto individual small plates.
  15. Immediately top the blooming apples with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
