This is a great winter dessert for the family. You can use frozen blueberries when fresh berries are out of season or too expensive.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 medium apples, washed and cored
4 dates, pitted
1 orange, juiced
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1/4 star anise
1/3 vanilla pod, split lengthwise
300g blueberries

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to about 180°C. Make a cut 1 mm deep around the middle of each apple.
  2. Place the apples in a small baking dish and place a pitted date in the hole of each cored apple. Spoon the orange and lemon juice over the apples and sprinkle with sugar. Add the star anise and vanilla pod to the dish. Transfer to the oven and bake for 30 minutes, basting now and then with the juices.
  3. After 30 minutes, scatter the blueberries into the dish and stir gently with the pan juices. Cover the dish with aluminium foil and bake for a further 20 minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  4. Serve the apples warm, with a spoonful of blueberries and juice.
