With Autumn around the corner, and an abundance of seasonal fruit and vegetables, it’s time we got baking and cooking. I know that the humble apple is available in any shop all year round nowadays, but don’t you think it tastes better in Autumn? I think it does.

Every season has its own magic, but there is something about Autumn that makes is so special. I wish l were in the countryside at this time of the year so l can hand pick myself all these beauties. There are lots of different apple varieties to choose from, so just choose the ones you like best. Baked in the oven, they all taste so good.

It’s a cheap treat that is super easy to make, and you don’t need to worry much about calorie intake. If your sweet tooth is craving some yummy stuff, these simple baked apples are all you need.

This is the kind of treat kids used to enjoy in past, when posh baking was not quite an option, either because the ingredients might not have been available, or maybe because some people could not afford much. But, you know what, you don’t need anything fancy, a little treat can mean so much. It’s enough to smell the aroma of the baked apples to understand that less can be more sometimes.

I mean, apples can be cheap when they are in season, and you don’t need to buy the biggest and the most beautiful apples in the supermarket. The truth is, those perfectly beautiful apples are actually the least healthy.

As someone who grew up in the countryside, I can tell that those little ugly apples no one wants are actually the tastiest and the healthiest. So, really, no need for perfection here. Another Autumn dessert that I absolutely love is the Apple Pie, again, a great Autumn dessert not to be missed.

    Oh my I haven’t had baked apples in years! Have you tried them with honey? That’s what I remember from my childhood and they were always amazing.
