Baked Caramel Apples

Many of our most popular recipes are from Janelle Nehrenz at Comfy in the Kitchen. When we discovered that she had a free Thanksgiving eCookbook, we wanted to share it with you.

While it's a little early to cook our turkey and stuffing, we decided to try out one of the Janelle's Thanksgiving eCookbook recipes that's great for autumn too. Here is her excellent recipe for Baked Caramel Apples that is included in the eCookbook.

Baked Caramel Apples

Start with beautiful apples. These are Gala, but it would be just as good with Granny Smith or other baking apples.

Remove the apple peels and cores. Cut into medium-sized pieces.

These baked caramel apples were served over vanilla ice cream. We prepared 1/3 of the full recipe.

Baked Caramel Apples

Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Serves: 20


  • 24 apples peeled, cored, cut into chunks
  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp flour
  • extra butter for dotting
  • sprinkle of cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put all sauce ingredients into a saucepan and bring to soft boil-it will thicken and turn into a caramel/gravy texture.
  3. Divide apples evenly into two 9x13 dishes, then pour equal amounts of caramel sauce over top.
  4. Dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  5. Cover and bake for 1 hour stirring at the 30 minute mark.

A note from Janelle:
You can use any kind of apple you wish. I like to use a mixture of green/red apples for a sweet and tangy combo.
