You know what? I don't care that the calendar still says August. I'm over this summer and am ready to indulge in all things fall. While they aren't quite in season yet, I gave myself permission to spend a little more on apples at the grocers this week. And if pumpkins were available, I would have bought some of those, too. Alas, I was only able to leave with two bags of apples and the promise of the scent of autumn baked goodness wafting through my house as soon as I possibly could get my hands on a must try recipe. You know with my trusty Golden Blossom Honey, I didn't have to look too hard to find a recipe to salivate over because once I pulled up this Baked Apples with Caramel Crunch Topping, it was on. The oven, that is.


The instructions said to bake these in a shallow baking dish, but it seems like these days I can't find half of my kitchenware, so I used a cast iron skillet instead. I'm sure one works as well as the other, but there's also something about cast iron cooking that makes me get more into an autumn mood. Add in the warmth from the oven and the scent of apples and cinnamon filling the house.... who needs scented candles for fall ambiance when you've got this recipe on hand? And if you're still one that's clinging onto the last dregs of summer, it's okay to add a scoop of ice cream on the side to help ease you from one season to the next.
 

Ingredients

3 large apples, cored and cut in halves
6 teaspoons plus 3 Tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2/3 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup raisin bran flakes

  1. That looks very nom very Autumny! I usually cut the apple like mango into smaller hedgehog cubes, that way cinnamon, honey and walnuts get deeper into their system. One of our producers has new apple cinnamon wafers and I like them, although they're a bit too sweet. We also have another type of new biscuits with that flavour and also with lemon, very nice.

    1. I usually make myself an apple crisp with the wedges cut like that. It's my all time favorite autumn dessert.
      I don't like too sweet wafers, but the lemon sounds like it would be lovely.

  3. Looks yummy, but I’d have to remove the peel first!

    Fall? I’m a summer gal, so I guess I look forward to Indian Summer! But maybe we can’t use that term anymore?? Ugh!

  6. Oh yes, count me in for the scoop of ice cream to help transition from one season to the next. The smell of apples and cinnamon baking is like no other, and def. gets you in the mood for sweaters, boots and crisp walks outside looking at the leaves changing colors. I do love Fall!

    1. Fall is so short lived in FL, no? I mean, I was wearing shorts and tee shirts when we visited during October/November! Though, I am sure you don't miss the northern winters LOL!

  7. I’ve sliced them in circle slices, spread peanut butter on them, and put dried fruit, coconut, sometimes seeds, and chocolate chips. This reminds me of that. It’s good.

    1. Not in Indiana. It's stifling. I feel like I hit a brick wall every time I walk outside. Fingers crossed autumn hurries along soon!

  10. Apples sure are a win. Hopefully Fall is nicer than summer weather wise, been blah here all around.

    1. But you've enjoyed the giant litter box frequently with the twins, so it couldn't be all that blah, right?

  11. These look DELICIOUS! Despite, Fall being my favorite season, I'm not quite ready for the Summer to end yet. I do have a confession though. I made a trip to Homegoods and spent WAY too much money on new Fall decorations. My favorite purchase so far has been these two ceramic garden gnomes that light up. One is dressed as a witch and the other is dressed as a mummy. LOL!

    1. You better share pics of them! I was at Home Goods today. I had to refrain from dropping all of my money on their Halloween items. It was a real test of self restraint, but I made it out without one single Halloween item.

    2. You deserve some serious kudos because I may have went back for a few more things that I convinced myself I needed after the fact.. To be fair, we finally did our den/office area so I need stuff to decorate that room. :) I'll definitely share some pics.

      P.S. My pig cookie jar broke and I'm DEVASTATED! That's the reason I went to Homegoods in the first place, but couldn't find a single decent replacement.
