I love all my galley gear, especially my little Omnia stove top oven.  Even though our boat is out of the water for this season, I still use it in our land galley.  And because of our recent packin-up-and-movin-out, it’s been the one appliance I haven’t packed.  Our land oven was scrubbedd clean for the future owner so it became a no cook zone before moving out of our condo (catch up with that story here)

With apples in season, I decided to bake us some sweet goodness bringing memories of my Mom’s baked apples flooding back.  I also remember as a child (uncertain of how old I was at that time), digging a small hole in the forest floor, lining the hole with rocks, then starting a fire.  When the fire was hot enough I would place foiled wrapped apples in the hole and roast them for several minutes.  Oh the flavours and those memories!  Luckily I never burned anything down and I can remember it as if it were yesterday.

Back to baking apples.  I stirred up some butter, sugar, seasoning and nuts into a pasty mixture.

…then stuffed it into each apple cavity.

Trying to keep this boat-galley-authentic I served the apples with a drizzle of cream (no freezer onboard for the ultimate ice cream experience)

Captain devoured his indicating to me that maybe ice cream wasn’t necessary.

But then I broke down and bought some French vanilla ice cream for him.  Oh my!  It’s a good thing I can’t keep ice cream in our little boat cooler, otherwise….well you can understand why can’t you? Oink!

Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 baking apples
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp butter (1/2 stick)
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • Cream, icecream, or whipped cream for serving
  1. Core apples making the hole about ¾ of the way into each.
  2. The hole I made was about 1.5” in diameter, just enough to accomodate the filling.
  3. Add the cinnamon to the brown sugar them cream in the soften butter.
  4. Stir in the walnuts.
  5. Divide the ‘stuffing’ evening amongst the 4 apples, pressing down firmly into each cavity.
  6. Heat the Omnia base plate on high for 5 minutes,
  7. Place apples in Omina cook pan, cover and put on the heated based plate.
  8. Cook on high for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat to meium low and continue to cook until apples are cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.
