Baked apples


  • 4 apples (1 per person)
  • 4 tsp demerara sugar (1 per person)
  • 4 tbsp dried fruit (sultanas, raisins or anything else you fancy)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (or mixed spice)


  1. Preheat oven 175’C/350’F/Gas mark 4
  2. Scoop out the core from the top of the apple, leaving a well – do not cut all the way through
  3. Score the skin around the centre of the apple, to stop the skin bursting as it cooks
  4. Stuff each apple with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of dried fruit
  5. Place in a shallow baking dish and sprinkle with cinnamon or mixed spice
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 15-30 minutes, until sugar begins to caramelize and apples are soft
