  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4/fan 160C. Core the apples so you have a hole the size of a pound coin in each one. Make a cut just into the skin around the middle of each apple.

  2. Stand the apples in a shallow baking dish large enough to take all four. Mix together the honey, cinnamon and orange zest, put an equal amount into the cavity of each apple, then pour the orange juice into the dish.

  3. Roast the apples for about 40 minutes, spooning the juices over them occasionally. Then, when the apples are almost ready, spoon the blackberries around and over the top of each apple. Return to the oven for 10 minutes or until the juices start to run. Spoon the blackberries and juices over the apples to serve.

Fabulous, very easy to make, delicious and reasonably healthy. the addition of orange is genius. I made mine in the slow cooker- just left on low for a couple of hours. I added a splash of white wine to the orange juice and pushed a few chopped up apricots into the centre of the apples before pouring the juice mix in.

This is so straightforward but the result is so delicious. The orange and cinnamon is such a good addition to the apple and blackberries, and the honey is a nice sweetener.

Really delicious and not too sweet!

Delicious! We didn't have any oranges so I used apple juice and filled the apples with a mixture of sultanas and dried apricots. Will definitely make again - guilt free dessert, until I served them up with homemade cinnamon icecream! Perfect combination.

We all found this too bitter I'm afraid. I think if I make it again I will substitute apple juice for the orange juice omit the orange zest and add raisins.

Made this last weekend and as it was so nice making it again just now. Timing it so that the ice cream van arrives just as they come out of the oven.

Super scrummie and really easy too! Amazing how the humble Bramley can turn into something so special. Will definitely make again. I served mine with vanilla ice cream, bit naughty but very nice!
