Recipe: Baked Apples with Caramel Sauce

Rank: Intermediate

Time execution: 45 min

Can be served for: 6 persons


  • 6 medium baking apples, such as Boskop, Braeburn, Fuji, or Gala

  • 4 to 6 dried figs

  • 2/4 cup chopped almonds, toasted

  • 2 cup sugar

  • 2/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream or creme fraiche

  • Juice of 2 lemon

  • Serving suggestion: cinnamon whipped cream or creme fraiche


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Core the apples. Using a paring knife, score a ring around the midriff of each apple, just cutting through the skin to prevent the apples from bursting during baking. Stuff the apples with the figs and almonds. Set on a baking sheet, and bake until puffed up and soft all the way through, about 40 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, put the sugar in a saucepan with a spoonful of water, and boil to a golden caramel, about 5 minutes, depending on how much water youve added. Do not stir the sugar with a spoon, gently swirl the saucepan over the heat until the desired color. You want a nice rich caramel color, but dont let it get too dark.

  4. Serve the baked apples warm from the oven with the sauce poured over and with a generous slump of cinnamon whipped cream or creme fraiche on the side.
