Each apple is one serving, but most people will want more than one serving of this one!


  • 6–8 medium green apples, peeled
  • 1½ cup crushed walnuts or almonds, or a mix of both
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 packet vanilla sugar
  • oil, as needed
  • white raisins, optional


Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.

Peel and core each apple. In a bowl, mix together the crushed nuts, sugar, and vanilla sugar. Brush each apple gently with a bit of oil. Roll each apple into the nut mixture. Line a small baking pan with baking paper. Stand up the coated apples in the pan. When they are all ready, spoon a bit of the nut mixture into the center of each apple's hole. You may choose to add several golden raisins to each apple's center as well. Place the pan into the oven and bake for about 45–55 minutes, checking them after the first 45 minutes. They are done when they are soft.
