  • Preparation Time:



  • 8 Apples -- Red or Golden Delicious
  • 6 ounces Raisins
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Orange zest
  • 4 ounces Brown sugar


  • Rinse and core each apple.
  • The peels should be scored or partially removed to allow the pulp to expand without bursting the skin during baking.
  • Plump the raisins by soaking them in boiling water for 10 minutes.
  • Drain the raisins thoroughly.
  • Combine the raisins, orange zest and brown sugar. Fill the cavity of each apple with this mixture.
  • Stand the apples in a shallow baking dish.
  • Add enough water to measure about 1/2 inch (1.2 centimeters) deep.
  • Bake the apples at 375°F (190°C) for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 300°F (150°C) and continue baking until the apples are tender but still hold their shape, approximately 1 hour. Occasionally, baste the apples with liquid from the baking dish.
