Baked Apples (With Chopped Hazelnuts)

Recipe by Jubes
READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat oven to 180°C ( 350°F ).
  • Core the apples, using an apple corer. If you dont have a corer, use a sharp knife leaving a wider opening at the top than at the bottom. There is no need to remove the apple skins.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, butter, hazelnuts, raisins, cinnamon and zest.
  • Stuff the apples firmly with the fruit mixture. Pack the apples as much as possible and then pile any leftover mix into mounds on top of the apples.
  • Place the apples into a baking dish, casserole or cake tin. Use a dish that fits them as snugly as possible-this will stop them from falling over. I usually use a pyrex pie/tart baking dish.
  • Spoon 1 teaspoon of honey/syrup over each apple. I usually just guess the amount for each apple and use a pouring top bottle of honey. Pour the water into the bottom of the dish.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  • Serve drizzled with any syrup remaining in the bottom of the dish.
  • Serve with cream, ice-cream or custard if desired.
