25 minutes prep time Serves 6

What You Need

  • 1/2 c honey
  • 1/2 c apple cider
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 4 baking apples (we used Fuji)
  • 1 c chopped walnuts
  • 1 c golden raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 375º. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine honey, apple cider, and spices. Bring to a simmer and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Set aside. 
  2. Cut each apple into quarters, removing cores and seeds with a knife. Cut each quarter into approximately 1/2-inch slices.
  3. Place 1/3 of the apples slices in the bottom of a deep baking dish. Sprinkle 1/3 of the walnuts and 1/3 of the raisins over the apples. Continue layering apples, walnuts, and raisins, ending with a layer of walnuts and raisins. Pour honey and cider mixture over. 
  4. Cover baking dish tightly with foil. Bake for 30 minutes, or until apples are soft. Serve warm apples and their sauce topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
