Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Mix together the breadcrumbs, apricots, cinnamon sugar, butter and zest.

  2. Using an apple corer, remove the centre of each apple, then score the skin across the equator so they don’t collapse during roasting.

  3. Pack the filling into the apples, then sit them snugly into an ovenproof dish. Mix together the orange juice and 150ml water and pour round the apples. Roast for 40-50 mins until nicely browned and very soft, but still just holding their shape. Serve with the sticky pan juices and custard or ice cream.

Overall we enjoyed this pudding but the apples I used for this were very large and tart so it spoiled the overall taste somewhat especially for the children. The filling was lovely and a nice change to use breadcrumbs. I used used slightly more cinnamon and still felt that to our taste it could have taken more. I will try this again, but with a different apple next time such as Pink Lady maybe.
