Baked Apple

Recently Mark and I went camping. Only for a weekend, but we had a nice time. Mark bought me a new Lodge Dutch Oven for the quick trip and I just love it. We used this beautiful cast iron oven to prepare our dinner of Kentucky Burgoo and Beer Bread. Then I used it to make baked apples for dessert. Everything turned out awesome… awesome that we are now considering adding a fire ring to our back yard for cookouts. Here’s my recipe for our baked apples.


  • a couple of Honey Crisp Apples
  • a handful of white chocolate chips
  • a handful of milk chocolate chip
  • a handful of shredded coconut
  • 2 TB light brown sugar
  • a couple of dashes of cinnamon

Core your apples. While coring enlarge the tops a bit so that you can stuff the sweet mixture in them. In a zip lock baggy combine the chocolate chips, coconut, brown sugar and cinnamon and shake until well mixed. Stuff this sweet mixture into the cored out area of the apples. Double wrap in foil, place in your Cast Iron Dutch Oven. Cover with the lid and place directly into the fire. Bake there for about 30 minutes. Remove from fire and carefully unwrapped the foil, now enjoy this wonderful campfire dessert.

    Brings back good memories of my camping days with Gene. These apples look good, especially with Honey Crisp šŸ™‚
