Baked Stuffed McIntosh Apples

Say good-bye to summer and hello to fall with these baked apples stuffed with granola cereal and nuts and topped with vanilla ice cream.


  • 6 large McIntosh apples
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup muesli cereal with nuts
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Vanilla bean ice cream, for topping


Pre-heat the oven to 375°F.

Peel the skin from the top third of the apples. Using a melon baller, scoop out a cavity for stuffing and remove the cores. Dress the apples with a little lemon juice and trim up the bottoms if necessary so that the apples sit upright.

Combine the stuffing ingredients in a small bowl, then overfill the apples, mounding the cereal mixture up a bit. Bake until bubbly and tender but not mushy, about 20 minutes. Top with small scoops of vanilla ice cream.
