Baked Foil Apples

Baked foil apples are a camping must. Whether cooked in the campfire, a Dutch oven, or a camp oven there are no reasons not to eat this tasty outdoor dessert.

One of the most common ways to make baked apples is in foil. The campfire is burned down to a bed of coals then that apple is placed directly in them to cook. Although it may be a fear that they will burn, this is not the case.

Baking apples in coals is a great idea to use apples that may otherwise go off while camping. Just don’t underestimate how long they take to cook, hanging around waiting for them to finish after the main course can be a real drag.

Ingredients

  • 1 apple
  • 2 tablespoons dried fruit such as sultanas, raisins, craisins and/or apricots
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 knob butter
  • cinnamon, pumpkin spice, or mixed spice, to taste

Equipment

  • foil

Directions

  • Layout two sheets of foil big enough to fully wrap the apple.
  • Core the apple and place it in the middle of the foil.
  • Combine the dried fruit, sugar, butter, and seasoning in a bowl, then stuff into the apple. Alternatively add into the apple's core in the order of fruit, butter then spice.
  • Wrap the apple with the foil: ball and chain style with the remaining foil twisted to create a handle or smooth ball style that will require tongs to position and remove it from the heat.
  • Place the apple in the heat source of choice and cook for 50 minutes, or until soft. Place directly in the coals, then cover with additional coals; place in a Dutch oven, then cover with coals to create a baking temperature of about 350 degrees F (180 degrees C), or place in a camp oven or stove preheated to 350 degrees F (180 degrees).
