Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Lightly butter a loaf pan or square baking pan large enough to hold all the apples.
In a bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, and red hot candies. Spoon this mixture into the cores of the apples.
Place the apples in the prepared pan. Pour the maple syrup over the apples. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
Baking time can vary slightly with the variety and size of the apples.
Makes 6 servings.
