History

Infdev
February 23, 2010 A player named JTE put a crafting recipe for golden apples as a joke at the bottom of a crafting guide he made. The recipe used gold ingots instead of gold blocks, like the golden apple recipe introduced in 1.6.[1]
February 27, 2010 Golden apples added. They healed a full 20 (Heart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svg) health points, making them the single best food in the entire game. They are crafted with an apple and eight blocks of gold.
Seecret Friday 2 Golden apples can now be rarely found in dungeons.
Beta
1.8 Due to the addition of hunger, golden apples were changed so that they restored 10 (Hunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svg) instead of 20 (Heart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svg) health points, but also gave Regeneration for 30 seconds.
Official release
1.0 Beta 1.9-pre2 Golden apples gained a purple glow when viewed from the player's inventory, and its tooltip was changed from the standard white to a magenta color.
Beta 1.9-pre3 Golden apples can now be found in the new stronghold altar chests.
1.1 11w48a Golden apples became easier to craft. Standard apples became able to very rarely drop from oak leaves, meaning that players no longer have to venture into strongholds/dungeons to find one. This caused the golden apple to decrease in value but also made them easier to obtain.
? Golden apples were changed so that they restored 4 (Hunger.svgHunger.svg) and only gave 4 seconds of Regeneration. Their crafting recipe was also modified, requiring 8 gold nuggets instead of 8 blocks of gold to craft. Although its natural spawn is rare, it is easier to obtain through crafting.
1.3.1 12w21a Added enchanted golden apples. Highly resembling the golden apple prior to 1.1, it has Regeneration IV (30 seconds), Resistance (5 minutes), and Fire Resistance (5 minutes). Crafted with 8 blocks of gold, it shines like an enchanted item and has a purple tooltip instead of the standard golden apple's blue one. The standard golden apple remained unchanged.
1.4.2 12w32a Golden apples can be fed to a zombie villager with the Weakness debuff causing them to revert to villagers after a delay of about 3 minutes.
1.6.1 13w23a Normal golden apples use 8 gold ingots instead of 8 gold nuggets, and the Regeneration effect was slowed down.
13w23b Normal golden apples give the player Health Boost for 1:30 and Regeneration II for 0:10. This temporarily gives the player 4 extra base health points, and it heals a total of 4 (Heart.svgHeart.svg) health points.
13w24b The Health Boost effect was replaced with Absorption, lasting 1:30. Enchanted golden apples gave the player Absorption as well, and Regeneration IV was increased to Regeneration V.
? Absorption now lasts 2:00.
1.8 14w06a Crafting an enchanted golden apple will give you the achievement "Overpowered".
1.9 15w37a The Regeneration effect from normal golden apples has been reduced to Regeneration I (from II in 1.8).
Enchanted golden apples give Regeneration II (down from V) and Absorption IV (up from I), in addition to the unchanged Resistance and Fire Resistance effects. The duration of the Regeneration effect has also been decreased to 20 seconds.
15w43a A single golden apple can sometimes be found in igloo chests.
15w43b This golden apple is now always found in igloo chests.
15w44a Enchanted golden apples are now uncraftable, making them no longer renewable.
The Regeneration effect from normal golden apples has been returned to Regeneration II, as it had been in 1.8.
Increased average yield of normal golden apples from dungeon chests.
Added normal golden apples to desert temple and mineshaft chests.
