What are Hasselback Apples?
Have you heard of hasselback apples? They’re like hasselback potatoes but a baked fall treat. Hasselback potatoes are a Swedish side dish gets its name from Hasselbacken, the Stockholm restaurant where it was first served. The seasoned potatoes turn out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
Top Hasselback Apples with Butter and Brown Sugar to Create a Caramel Sauce as it Bakes
Sweet hasselback apples are made just like their potato predecessors, the apples are cut into thin, delicate layers. Then a topping of butter, brown sugar and cinnamon are sprinkled over the top. The apples are baked until the topping melts and coats the apple layers with a rich, thick caramel sauce.
Toast Coconut Flakes for a Crunchy Topping
While the apples are baking, you can toast sweet coconut on a baking sheet and combine the toasted coconut with more brown sugar and butter. Then add that streusel onto the top of the apples and bake them a bit longer until the streusel has melted.

Hasselback Apples with toasted Coconut Streusel Topping
. Delicate apple layers are filled with a rich, cinnamon caramel sauce and topped with crunchy coconut streusel topping in this easy recipe!
- 2 large apples (firm variety such as gala, granny smith, fuji, etc.)
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, divided in half
- 4 Tbsp. butter, divided in half
- 1 tsp. cinnamon, divided in half
- 1/3 cup flaked coconut
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 cups vanilla bean ice cream
Pre-heat oven to 400-degrees.
Peel and core the apples. Then cut the apples in half. Place the apples, cut side down on a cutting board. Cut 1/8" slices half way through the apple halves.
Place the apples in a square baking dish, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Put half the butter in a bowl and melt it in the microwave, then add half of the cinnamon and half of the brown sugar and mix well. Then brush the apples with the butter mixture.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
While apples are baking, toast the coconut. Place 1/3 cup flaked coconut on a baking sheet. Set oven to broil and broil for 5 minutes, or until coconut flakes are browned. You can also do this step ahead. In a small bowl, combine the remaining butter, cinnamon and brown sugar.
Take apples out of the oven. Remove aluminum foil. The butter, cinnamon and brown sugar will have melted and combined with the apple juices to make a caramel sauce. You can take the sauce and spoon it back over the apples.
Cut the remaining butter into 4 slices. Place a slice of butter on each apple half, then sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar and cinnamon and top each apple with toasted coconut. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Take apples out of the oven and let them cool for 5-10 minutes. Then serve, topped with a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
