Baked apples with prunes, cinnamon & ginger
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
A simple, classic low-fat pudding to use up seasonal Bramleys
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Using a sharp knife, score a line around the equator of each apple. Put them into a baking dish with a small splash of water in the bottom.
- STEP 2
In a bowl, combine the ginger, cinnamon, prunes and sugar. Stuff the mixture into the apples so that they are well packed. Top each with a knob of butter and bake for 35-40 mins, or until cooked through. To test, pierce with a sharp knife – it should slide straight through. The apples can be cooked up to a day ahead, then warmed through in the oven or microwave before eating.
- STEP 3
Remove from the oven and baste the apples with the liquid left in the dish. Serve hot or warm with the ice cream.
