We have been so enjoying our baked apples, so I decided to do a little experimentation. Basically that’s what cooking is all about, isn’t it? I never cook oatmeal with milk, buy I decided to give it a go for some added richness.
Basically, I followed the instructions on the side of the Old Fashioned Oatmeal box. Normally, I prefer the steel ground oats, but when I get a bee in my bonnet and want to try something new, I want to try it now. So, in under 10 minutes, I was ready to go.
Next I made baked apples. I basically followed Grandma O’s recipe except:
2 large baking apples, such as Honeycrisp or Fuji
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oatmeal or granola
drizzle with honey
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Wash and halve apples. Core out the center of the apple.
Place a tablespoon of butter in each center.
Sprinkle with brown sugar
Sprinkle with granola.
Drizzle with honey.
Bake until the apples are soft and the filling is browned, 1 hour.
