Sweet cooked apples are great for breakfast as a topping over pancakes, waffles, or even over oatmeal. They also work great on their own, as a simple dessert, served warm with vanilla ice cream: it’s like having an apple pie without a crust.

The smell of apples cooking in brown sugar with all the spices made it impossible to resist taking little bites as I was cooking. Beware! These sweet cooked apples are super addictive!

Total Time: 30 minutes

Sweet cooked apples recipe


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 large sweet apples such as Fuji, cored, peeled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1/3 cup water


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet, add sliced apples and cook for a couple of minutes to soften them up. Add 1/3 cup of water, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract and stir really well, while on low-medium heat, to combine with apples.
  2. Dissolve corn starch in the remaining 1/3 cup of water. Add to the apple mixture in the skillet and bring to boil. Boil for about a minute until mixture thickens to the desired thickness. Remove from heat (do not overcook apples). Ready to serve!
