Michigan apples make great baked apples

A favorite of our bed and breakfast guests has always been our baked apples.  With Cranes u-pick orchards and many other orchards and farm stands in the surrounding Saugatuck, South Haven and Holland area, it is only natural that we feature the local produce on our breakfast buffet.  Making baked apples is simple:  Just halve each apple, scope the seeds out with a mellon baller and place cut side up in a baking dish.  Then drizzle butter on them and top with a mixture of 1/2 cup sugar, 2 TBSP flour and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Drizzle a little more butter on top of them and put about 1/2 cup water in the bottom of the pan.  Bake at 350 for approximately 45 minutes.  A yummy treat that our bed and breakfast guests enjoy and a true Michigan fruit indeed.
