Baked Apples

 

Baked Apples

Baked apples are a lovely way to enjoy apples, you can add in different flavours into the mix to suit your taste.

  • 4-6 Apples (depending on size)
  • Handful of dried fruit (Sultanas, apricots, cranberries, dates etc), chopped
  • 1 Tsp cinnamon 
  • 2 Tbsp chopped nuts (Pecans work really well!)
  • 1 Tbsp  soft butter
  • 1 Tbsp Maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC
  2. Use an apple corer to remove the centre of the apple.
  3. Use a knife to score a thin line all the way around the middle of the apple. ( This will stop it bursting in the oven!).
  4. In a bowl, mix together the fruit, cinnamon and nuts.
  5. Place the apples into a baking dish.
  6. Use your finger to press the fruit & nut mixture into the middle of the apple.
  7. Put a small blob of butter on top of each apple and drizzle a little maple syrup on.
  8. Place in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the apple is soft, but not collapsed.

Serve these with natural yogurt, for a really yummy pud!!
