This fall, turn a sweet and juicy apple into a bowl that you can fill with your favorite fall ice cream flavor. Then, turn the inside of the apple and create a delicious topping to go on top for a complete baked apple sundae!
The weather is changing pretty earlier here in Cincinnati. That means it’s still warm, but the fall weather is definitely upon us! I come alive when the fall comes because I get into a fall baking mood! It all starts with football season and the tailgating parties. The next thing you know is I am making pumpkin and apple recipes and baking up a storm!
Have you noticed that apples are in abundance at this time of year? And there are all types of apples too! There are Washington apples, Honeycrisp apples, Pink Lady apples, Fiji apples, Pink Lady apples, etc. With all of those apples, you are going to need some apple recipes. This baked apple recipe is one of the easiest apple recipes you will come across on my blog.
How to make baked apples ice cream bowls?
The method of making these bowls are a bit time-consuming yet very simple.
You start with an apple (I would use Honeycrisp) and cut a hole in the top of the apple with a pairing knife. As you cut the apple, you will pull some of the apple fruit out of the apple, making a bowl.
Once you have completed that part, you will rub the outside of the apple with butter and the inside. Then, you will coat the apple with some light brown sugar and bake. Once they’ve baked, they will be a little soft, and that coating on the outside of the apple is just going to make you go crazy. Not to mention, have your house smelling amazing.
Don’t throw away the inside of the apples because we will use that to make a quick apple topping. Once you have your bowls filled with your favorite ice cream or maybe Pumpkin Ice Cream, you can add the apple topping on top of the ice cream along with some chopped candied pecans or walnuts.
These Baked Apple Ice Cream Bowls are perfect for fall! They are a delicious fall treat and a great dish to make with the entire family.
Commonly Asked Questions
You can use any kind of apple you prefer. However, I do not recommend using Washington apples as they are already kind of mushy. That is just my opinion.
You don’t have to, but I do recommend letting them cool down slightly just to the point where they are still warm but not piping hot.
