Warm your hands and toes by the campfire while you prepare campfire-baked stuffed apples. Tart apples are stuffed with a sweet oat and raisin mixture. They are then roasted in the fire to give them a slightly smoky aroma.
This is the perfect recipe to prepare when you have plenty of hot coals at your campfire. Throw the apples in the coals while you eat dinner, and you’ll have a warm dessert waiting for you.
Try adding other flavors and ingredients to play around with the recipe. You can substitute dried cranberries or currents, or a spice like nutmeg. Or add a handful of toasted nuts, like pecans or walnuts.
Campfire-Baked Stuffed Apples Recipe
- 4 Granny Smith apples or apples you have available
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup apple cider
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup salted butter melted
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- hickory wood
- heavy duty aluminum foil
- Start a campfire using hickory wood or available hardwood.
- Generously hollow out the top of each apple using a paring knife or melon baller.
- Using a fork, mix together the raisins, oats, apple cider, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a bowl.
- Stuff the mixture into the hollowed-out apples.
- Double-wrap each apple in foil, then place it directly on the hot campfire coals. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the apples are just tender.
- Carefully remove the apples from the coals, unwrap (being careful of the steam), and serve.
