Sliced open baked apple topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce

Cider Baked Apples for Fall

To help usher in fall and commemorate the launch of our brand new MULLING SPICE GIFT BOX, we have created an easy and delicious baked apple recipe featuring our award-winning mulling spice.

If you're looking for ways to use fresh apples, look no further than this easy apple dessert. Baked apples are a delightful twist on your standard apple pie - and come together so quickly.

To prepare your apples, you'll want to core them while leaving just a bit at the bottom to hold all the yummy goodness. We found that a melon baller worked great for this! You may also simply slice your apples in half and scoop out the core creating a cavity for the filling. 

No need to open up the spice drawer on this one - simply mix 1/2 cup of our mulling spice with some butter and a few other pantry staples, stuff your apples, and let the sweet smell of fall fill your home as they bake. 

Slice them open and serve with a generous helping of vanilla ice cream (of course!) and a drizzle of caramel for the perfect fall dessert.

Happy fall, y'all!

Cider Baked Apples Recipe

Package of Raven's Nest Mulling Spice in a red plaid holiday gift box next to fresh apples, cinnamon sticks, and a baking dish with baked apples

Makes 4 apples


  • 4 medium apples
  • 1/2 cup Raven’s Nest Mulling Spice
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
  • 2/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 4 T butter, softened
  • Caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream to serve


Preheat oven to 350*

Core each apple, leaving the bottom of the apple intact (a melon baller works great for this). Alternately, you may cut the apples in half and scoop out the core creating a cavity for the filling. Set aside.

Combine mulling spice, salt, flour, nuts, and oats in a medium bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the mixture, using a fork to incorporate it. The mixture should hold together if you gather clumps and press together.

Divide filling between the prepared apples then place apples in baking dish. Pour about 3/4 cup of water in bottom of the dish.

Bake until the apples are soft and filling is browned, about 1 hour.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
