1 9x13-inch baking dish


  • cooking spray

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 6 apples - peeled, cored, and chopped, or more to taste

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • ¼ cup butter, cut into small cubes

  • ½ cup whole milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together in a large bowl; add apples and toss to coat. Stir raisins, walnuts, and butter into apple mixture. Spread apple mixture evenly in prepared baking dish. Combine milk and vanilla extract together in a bowl; pour evenly over apple mixture. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until apples are easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes.

  4. Remove foil and stir apples. Bake until apples are very soft and mixture is bubbly, about 30 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

I prefer Honeycrisp apples, but you can use Granny Smith, or really any of your favorites.

I also use this recipe as a base for my apple crisp desserts. At the 20 minute mark, I pull it out of oven, turn it up to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), stir, add my favorite oat crumb topping, and cook uncovered until oat topping is crisp and browned, 20 to 30 minutes.

I prefer my apples to be crisp, but they were on the verge of soft in this case, so I cooked at a higher temperature for less time to preserve the crispness.
