Baked Apples (With Chopped Hazelnuts)

Baked Apples (With Chopped Hazelnuts) created by mailbelle

Good old-fashioned baked apples. A great winter dessert and also gluten free. This recipe makes 6 baked apples. You can substitute different fruit and nut combinations, eg sultanas and sliced almonds. These are extremely hot when removed from the oven I usually allow them to sit for about 10 minutes. Any extra apples can be stored in the fridge and reheated in the microwave.

ingredients

directions

  • 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.

    Made these with 2 tablespoons honey, 2 teaspoons apple pie spice, the raisins, pecans for the hazelnuts, the lemon zest, and the cinnamon. Baking time was close to what was written. Ending result was a fabulous dessert. Made for Fall Pick a Chef 2012.

    I made 3 granny smith apples and used sultanas and toasted almonds as that is what I had and needed to use and only used half the amount of recommended brown sugar and a sugar free maple syrups and we had a delcious dessert that was friendly to our blood sugar readings. Thank you Jubes, made for Make My Recipe - Spring Edition.

    Enjoyed these! Reduced recipe to only make 2 since there were just 2 of us here. Popped them in the oven as soon as we sat down to dinner and they were ready as soon as we finished dinner. Made as written except I used dried cranberries instead of raisins. And since DH is a bigger fan of hazelnuts than raisins/cranberries, I switched the amounts, using more hazelnuts than cranberries. Thanks for posting! Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #34.
