Method

  1. Halve each apple through the circumference and dig out the core with a dessert spoon from both halves, leaving bowl-shaped hollows behind.
  2. Mix together all the remaining ingredients except for the orange juice and fill the apples with the mixture. Fit them into a microwaveable dish and pour the orange juice on top. Cover and cook on Medium (500w) for 5-7 mins until soft. Cool for a few mins before serving with the yogurt or fromage frais.

Lovely flavours - I made with dried figs as I had some that needed using but I found cooking them in the microwave tricky - cooking time seemed insufficient but when I extended it some apples exploded! I'm not a microwave expert so it could just be down to me! However, as a last minute Sunday lunch pudding it was a winner - could have been healthy and served with low fat yoghurt but a dribble of cream is lovely! Had some left overs so scooped out apple flesh and date mixture and topped our morning porridge with it. Yum!

Made this as a last minute pudding, really delicious and warming in the winter months.

So easy and quick, I've made these several times, change the filling to sultanas and chopped dried apricots and a hand full of nuts if you haven't got dates or prunes.

I omitted the prunes and served with vanilla ice cream - very quick and easy
