This is a slight adaptation of a wonderful recipe from the chef Simon Rimmer. Baked apples are a lovely desert in the chilly weather, but the addition of exotic fruit and brandy lends them a bit of summer! Quantities are for 2 and prep time does not include soaking the fruit.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Soak the dried fruit in the brandy (or rum if you're using that) overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 300°F and core the cooking apples, leaving them whole and unpeeled.
  3. Mix the sugar, butter and allspice in to the fruit and brandy mixture then stuff the cavity of the apples with it.
  4. Put the apples in a dish, cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for a further 10 minutes or until apples are soft.
  5. Serve with heavy cream or ice cream.
