Baking with apples can be tricky, since there are so many varieties out there, and so many delicious desserts to bake. We’ve got a handy guide to coach you through apple baking season.

So why is baking with apples so amazing?
Well, a few reasons. First, they provide a lot of moisture to any baked good, which means that your cakes, cupcakes, and loaves will be wonderfully fresh and moist. Next, they are naturally sweet, which means you have to add less “real” sugar to your recipes. Finally, they’re healthy! Apples have heaping doses of vitamin C, potassium, fiber, and are just great for our hearts. All this makes you want to get baking, right? It sure does for us!
