Baked Apple with Maple Yogurt Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by DoubletheGarlic

Thumbs up for a healthy, boldly spiced treat! On the note of the spices, it certainly took the maple-yoghurt sauce to take the edge off that quantity of cinnamon, but the overall effect had the nuanced qualities of a top rate restaurant. Some of my brown sugar topping didn't carmalize -- next time I would drop a few drops of water on top. And presoaking the raisins (in brandy?) would prevent the hardening/burning of exposed raisins (and take the whole thing up _another_ notch!). Thanks a lot!
