Baked Apples


This is quick pudding you can make when you think there is literally nothing in the fridge.

One reader tells me she is a baked apple purist, rubbing the skin with a little coconut oil and baking them with nothing but a cinnamon stick inside the core. These are slightly more decadent using butter, coconut sugar, dried fruit and spices. Delicious served with ice-cream, cream or yoghurt and leftovers work well with y0ghurt for breakfast.

What you need:

4 apples

80g butter

2 tbls coconut sugar

1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruits e.g. dates or apricots

1/2 teaspoon allspice/cinnamon

Method:

Preheat the oven to 190C.

Core your apples and insert small knob of butter into the bottom of each.

Mix some raisins (and/or other dried fruits) with a little coconut sugar, cinnamon/mixed spice and stuff the cores with the mixture.

Add another little knob of butter on top and bake for 20-40 minutes at 190c depending on the apple size.

These were smallish organic apples from Eat FRESH so only took 20 mins (and frankly felt a bit wasteful cooking them as they are soooo good raw...) but baked apples were my family's order...

Serve with cream or ice-cream.

Anyone do theirs differently in an interesting way? Let me know!

Serves 4.
