  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 apples medium
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla optional
  • 1 teaspoon dark rum optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350℉. Position rack to middle.
  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • Wash the apples.
  • Cut apples in half (see note). Remove seeds and core with melon baller or spoon.
  • Pour hot water, vanilla (if using) and rhum (if using) in bottom of the pan.
  • Place apple halves in a baking dish and sprinkle tops with the mixture.
  • Top each apple with 1/6 tablespoon of butter.
  • Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until you can pierce the apples easily with a fork. Baste occasionally with infused water.
  • Serve hot.


Alternately, you can core the apples and spoon the mixture in the hollowed out cavity. Increase bake time to 45 minutes. Remember to score apples 1/4 inch from the top. Make one complete incision around the apple. (This allows the apple to expand while baking.
