Sweet Spiced Apples (Secret Recipe Club)

It’s time for Secret Recipe Club, November version – and a blog that I had a tough time picking a recipe from! Love and Flour has a ton of great ones. After debating between several, I settled on this, which was a great (and EASY!) dessert after a comforting dinner.


Not the easiest dish to get a decent photograph of, but take my word for it…you should make this.


I could have fit more apples in my crockpot…obviously it depends on the size of yours…definitely a great option when feeding a group. The house smelled delicious, too…even though I busted a few of them up…oops!

Don’t forget to check out the other delicious creations from everyone participating in SRC this month!

Sweet Spiced Apples
barely adapted from Love and Flour

5 apples
1/3 cup cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespooons chopped walnuts
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, optional

Hollow out each apple, making sure bottom stays intact. Combine cranberries, sugar, nuts, and spices in a bowl. Stuff each apple with mixture.

Place apples in crockpot and cook on low for about 4 hours. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

    They look amazing! Can you send one or two over? It is gray and cold outside and I don’t own a crock pot….

  4. At first I thought those were grapes in there, but cranberries sound even better. Yummy!

    How good is the smell of baked apples in the air!

    The cranberries are a really interesting idea– I’ve certainly mixed apples and cranberries in things like crisps, but it would have never occurred to me to stuff them in baked apples. Great choice!
