Baked Apple Dessert Recipe

Baked apples look a lot more difficult to make than they actually are, so they are a great dinner party dessert.  And as they have apples in them, you know you are helping your guests/family/friends to be that much healthier - remember the adage an apple a day keeps the doctor away!  Perfect for a autumn or winter pudding, kids and adults alike will love this - and it's a great way to combine a few of your five a day. We use cranberries and pecans for our filling but feel free to experiment with other ingredients. 

Ingredients 

  • 4 apples
  • 50g dried cranberries/craisins
  • 50g fresh cranberries 
  • 50g chopped pecans
  • 125ml maple syrup 
  • 150ml cider 

Method 

  • Preheat oven to 180c/gas mark 4
  • Cut the lid from the top of the apple, core it and then cut around the equator of the apple. 
  • Combine the cranberries, pecans, and the maple syrup together until thorughly mixed. 
  • Place the bottom half of the apples on an oven-safe tin/dish and stuff with cranberry/pecan mixture.
  • Replace apple lids, top off with some more of the cranberry mixture and pour cider over the stuffed apples.
  • Drizzle with any remaining syrup.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, basting the apples with cider every 10 minutes.
