Ingredients

  • 50g natural dried breadcrumbs
  • 8 dried apricots , roughly chopped
  • 75g cinnamon sugar (see below)
  • 75g butter , chopped
  • zest and juice 1 orange
  • 6 large Bramley apples
  • custard or vanilla ice cream, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

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

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKE YOUR OWN CINNAMON SUGAR

Mix together golden granulated sugar and ground cinnamon at a ratio of 100g/4oz sugar to 1 tsp cinnamon. If you want the flavour without the colour, bury a couple of whole cinnamon sticks in a jar of sugar and leave for at least 3 months before using.
