Baked Apples With Red Currant Jelly

Today we made a very easy and quick dessert: baked apples with red currant jelly!

We used red apples, but green apples would be an excellent choice as well thanks to the flavors contrast (sweet-sour).

If you like dried fruits, feel free to add them inside the apples!

This dessert is also a lovely idea for festive occasions such as Christmas or New Year lunch or dinner. It requires minimal time and effort and will certainly impress with its wonderful and bright colors.

  • Fill each apple with 1 full tsp. red currant jelly, ½ tsp. vegan butter and on top, add another 1 full tsp. jelly. You can sprinkle some cinnamon too!
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 175°C/347°F for about 30 minutes (baking time depends on the oven).
  • Serve while they are hot and add cinnamon on top.


1. You can use green apples, if you don’t like very sweet flavors.
2. Alternatives: If you want to replace the butter and jelly, you can put 1½ tsp. agave or maple syrup or sugar and ½ tsp cinnamon (adjust the quantity to your personal taste).
