I’m going to go ahead and apologize right now for the lack of pictures of this bread. It deserves much more. Trust me. I’m not going to lie. This bread was time consuming, difficult, and unpredictable. It also had yeast in it, which we all know I love. Not.

Growing up our neighbor behind us had an apple tree. Cute, right?
Not really. Its apples were disgusting.
The neighbor’s apples would always fall over the fence and into our yard, so finally one day I took a bite out of one. It was so bitter and distasteful. I chucked that thing to the other side of the neighbor’s yard and vowed never to eat one again.
The apples never stopped falling on our side of the yard though. And it really ticked me off because our yard was getting littered with bitter apples that no one was going to eat.
I wish I knew about this recipe when I was a kid, because maybe this recipe would have made those apples worth eating.
This recipe is too good to keep a secret.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) I was the only one home on the day I made this. And we happen to have only one apple left in our kitchen. So I did what any sensible hungry girl would do with a few extra minutes on her hands. I made something sweet.
And then, as soon as it came out of the oven, I dumped a bunch of ice cream and caramel syrup on top to make it even sweeter.
My hasty decisions were good ones. The combination tasted great together.
Single Baked Caramel Apple Recipe
By May 22, 2013
- Yield: 1 filled apple (1 Servings)
- Prep: 5 mins
- Cook: 30 mins
- Ready In: 35 mins
Adapted from The Pastry Affair
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Core the middle of the apple and place one caramel at the bottom.
- Combine brown sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, salt and granola. Spoon mixture into the apple and place caramel on top.
- Put enough water in a baking dish to fill the bottom. Place apple in the middle of the dish.
- Bake for 30 minutes, allow to cool a bit, top with ice cream and caramel syrup and ENJOY!
And I’ve decided that when I have kids someday, it will be an annual (or maybe monthly…daily?) tradition to have baked apples together as a family.
This is the very first chicken pot pie I’ve ever made. I’m happy to say that it wasn’t difficult. But, of course, that’s because I used jiffy all-purpose mix and frozen vegetables, which made the recipe really easy to make. The first time I made this was back in Marsh when I was taking my CNA course. That was a busy time. I had to be able to make dinners really quickly. I was gone from 7:15am – 3:00pm and Mr. Pribs was flying at nights, so he was usually gone from 5pm to 1am. It was a weird schedule…one I don’t want to return to.
