Bratapfeln – German Baked Apples are a traditional treat when the weather starts to cool off. This easy recipe features all the delicious flavors of a classic apple pie but in a single-serving, healthy-ish style. Crisp apples stuffed with butter, sugar, raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon, then baked in the oven until the apples are cooked through and tender. Serve this easy comforting dessert warm with a homemade vanilla sauce (recipe included) for a decadent upgrade.

To start off this recipe, wash and pat dry the apples. Use a sharp paring knife or an apple corer to cut out the cores, leaving the bottom of the apples intact. In a bowl, stir together the butter, sugar, raisins, and cinnamon. Divide the prepared filling evenly between the apples. Bake the apples in a buttered baking dish, covered with aluminum foil, about 1 hour. In the meantime, make the vanilla sauce. Once the apples are tender, serve them warm, drizzled with the prepared sauce. Guten appetit!
