Stuffed & Baked Apples

   

This is a sinfully delightful way to eat apples. It’s rich and juicy and warm and cozy. Also, it’s apples and hence predominantly guilt free! 
 
The best part was I could get almost one apple along with some raisins and walnuts into the little one’s stomach. Makes it a favorite right away! Also, it’s a quick and easy desert to serve while having people over. The recipe is from here.

Serves 2

So here goes –

WHAT WE NEED

Apples                             2

Brown sugar                  3 tbsp

Butter                              1 tbsp

Walnuts, chopped       4 tbsp

Raisins                            4 tbsp

Cinnamon powder       1/2 tsp

Nutmeg powder            1/4 tsp

Ginger powder              1/2 tsp

Orange Juice                  4 tbsp

WHAT TO DO

  • Preheat the oven to 190C
  • Mix brown sugar, walnuts,raisins, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder and ginger powder
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and add to this mixture and combine.
  • Cut off the top of the apple and scoop out the flesh with a small spoon.
  • Ensure that the walls and base of the apple are intact.
  • Stuff the sugar mixture into the apples and sprinkle the balance mixture on top.
  • Arrange the apples in a baking dish and pour the orange juice on and around the apples.

NOTES

  1. Other options for stuffing are cooked rolled oats, other dried fruits, candied fruits or ginger, etc.
  2. If you are baking more than 3 apples then it is advisable to rotate the baking tray once after 15 minutes of baking.
