Filling the apple.
The most basic recipe is prepared with butter and sugar as the filling of the apples. However, you can substitute the sugar with any other sweetener you like, either liquid or granulated, such as maple sugar, brown sugar, honey or even cacao. In addition, you can also add a pinch of your favourite dried fruit or nut.
Serve with something else.
Serve warm with a splash of cold vanila ice cream or a natural yogurt.
Pour another type of liquid.
In this recipe, we add some water in the baking dish before putting the apples in the oven. This helps during the baking process to achieve a more soften texture and avoids the apple to stick to the bowl. However, you can substitute the water with another liquid like apple cider or apple juice if you prefer to achive a sweeter sauce.
