This Vegan Bourbon Baked Apple recipe is a great way to get that ridiculously good apple flavor without resorting to the time intensive sport of pie making. It’s kind of like an apple pie but without all the crust drama.
4 large tart, green apples
¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
¼ cup chopped raisins
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp maple syrup
4 tsp vegan margarine
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ cup water
⅓ cup bourbon
Preheat oven to 190° C
Wash the apples. Using a paring knife, remove the cores almost, but not completely to the bottom. If you have an apple corer you can cut the core out all the way through but be sure to cut off the bottom ½ inch of the core and put it back in the bottom of the apples. Be sure to dig out any seeds. The holes should be about ¾ – 1 inch wide.
In a small bowl whisk together the pecans or walnuts, raisins, brown sugar, maple syrup, vegan margarine, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stuff the apples with this mixture.
Place the apples in a 8 x 8 inch square baking dish. Add the water and bourbon to the baking dish. Bake for about 35 minutes, until tender when poked with a fork, but not mushy.
Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices. Serve warm with vanilla non-dairy ice cream or whipped vegan cream.
