Baked Apple Sundae

I love ice cream.  I really love vanilla ice cream with toppings.  Toppings just seem fun to me.  Maybe it is why I jumped with both feet into the frozen yogurt scene.  I love the toppings as much if not more than the frozen yogurt itself.  (Please tell me I am not alone in this.)  So I know what you are probably thinking…the ice cream is inside the apple, it is not a topping.  Well, technically the ice cream is inside and the apple is not on top at all.  But because the apples are baked they are soft enough to cut through with a spoon.  So, you can eat the entire thing here!!  Eat the apple right along with the ice cream.  It is delicious-I promise!!

This is a super simple dessert with a fun wow factor!  You are going to want to try this one.

Baked Apple Sundae


4 Apples (honey crisp work really well)

4 tsp. brown sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

vanilla ice cream

caramel sauce

chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350.  Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in small bowel and set aside.

Wash each apple and pat dry.  Using a small paring knife core the apple.  Be sure to not cut all the way through the apple.  You should have a hole at the top that is about an inch in diameter.  Place apples in a square baking dish.  Divide the brown sugar among the apples.  Be sure to cover the entire inside of each apple.

Bake apples 40-50 minutes.  Apples should still hold their shape but be cooked through.  You will hear popping and the juices will leak out of the apple-this is okay!

Place apples in serving dishes and fill with ice cream.  It works best to use a small scoop, like you would use for cookie dough.  Drizzle caramel and nuts over the top.  Serve immediately.

**Note: Be sure to use apples that can hold up to baking and that you like the flavor of.  In my experimenting I really prefer the honey crisp apple for this, but there are countless varieties of apples out there so find your favorite!!
