Baked Apple With Dried Fruit




An easy autumn dessert that we love to indulge after a busy day . Baked apples make  comforting  & satisfying dessert especially served with ice-cream .  For this recipe I’ve used Granny Smith apples & some leftover dried fruits from my pantry .  The tartness of the apples  blended perfectly with the delicious syrupy filling …. YUM

Baked Apple With Dried Fruit
Recipe adapted from Canadian Living

Ingredients for 4:
1 cup of apple cider
¼ cup brown sugar (I’ve used light brown sugar)
¼  Tsp ground cinnamon
¼  Tsp ground nutmeg
1 Tbsp butter
4 apples (Golden , Gala or Granny Smith )
½ cup mixed chopped dried fruits ( I’ve used raisins, apricots , figs & cranberries)

Method:

1)      Preheat oven to 190°C .  In a small saucepan , combine cider, cinnamon, nutmeg & sugar . Bring to a boil & stir in butter . Remove from heat & set aside .

2)      Core apples almost to the bottom , leaving base intact . Pare off 2 cm wide strip around core at the top ; trim base to level if necessary .

3)      Stuff mixed dried fruit into each apple . Place in a square baking dish & pour cider mixture over the top . Bake for about 35 – 40 mins  . Bake till apples are tender & the sauce is syrupy.
