Simply Baked Apples

Here’s a nice simple warming pudding for this time of year, we’ve been blessed with an abundance of Bramleys, which are perfect, though quickly turn into a lovely fluffy mess if you overcook, or if you have available one of the other lovely cookers, such as Orleans Reinette use them, but just about any apple will be delicious.

Baked Apples

1 apple per person, and for each apple the following ingredients

1 tsp unsalted butter

1 tbsp soft brown or muscovado sugar

1 tbsp dried cranberries or raisins

1 tsp orange zest

a pinch of mixed spice

and a walnut half

Multiply the above for however many apples you use. Mix together all the ingredients except the walnut.

Scoop out the core of the apple using a thin knife, leaving the base of the apple in tact, this helps prevent the contents leaking straight out, and then score a line around the outside of the apple 2/3rds of the way up, this stops the apple exploding!

Fill the hole in the apple with the mix, to with the walnut half and sprinkle with some more sugar.

Bake in a preheated oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4 for 30/35  minutes until the apple is cooked and the top is starting to caramelise, serve with cream/ice cream/clotted cream (or if you’re being healthy low fat greek yoghurt).
