The simplest apple "recipe" this fall. I had a few lonely apples, not enough for a pie or a tart.

Chunky spiced apples
{chunky spiced apples}

Cored and roughly chopped, tossed in a saucepan with a few glugs of apple cider, a healthy dash of cinnamon and pinches of nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Covered and cooked over low heat until apples are soft, approximately 15 minutes.

To be enjoyed on a chilly fall afternoon, while curled under an afghan. Bonus points for eating it hot and adding a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream.


  1. Mmm. One of my favorites as well. Love the way that the smell permeates the whole house while these are on the stove.

  2. Perfect for a fall day! And oh so simple.

  3. Delicious and simple in its pleasure! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. i can almost smell it dad used to make this for me when i was little and now that i know his secret, i have to try it myself!

  5. oooh yum yum! i love baked whole apples, but this sounds easier to eat and yummy too - especially with the ice cream on top!

  6. sounds delicious! wonder if you could use pumpkin pie spice with everything combined?

  7. Now this is a recipe even I can't fudge! Thanks for sharing this. Here's to cozy days!

  8. Oh how delicious. Perfect for a chilly afternoon.

  9. Anything that's good enough for ice cream is good enough for me. Mmmm.

  10. oh, and that makes the house smell so good too!

  11. never tasted pumpkin, but that does look inviting and worth a try, Lisa x.

  12. I have to chime in to give you another simple option if you only have one apple.

    faux apple pie -

    thinly sliced apple
    buttered bread slices
    slice of cheese

    stack it all up, cheese on top and bake in oven or even a toaster oven until the cheese melts and the apples start to get soft.
