Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 large granny smith or other cooking apples, cored
110g sugar
250ml water
1 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg

Method

  1. Make a slit around the centre of each apple to prevent splitting. Arrange close together in a shallow baking dish. Boil sugar and water together for 2–3 minutes and stir in spice. Pour over apples and bake in a preheated moderate oven for 50–60 minutes, basting often with syrup. Serve warm with custard, cream or ice cream.

Note

  • Cavities of apples may be filled with chopped dates or raisins if wished. Brown sugar may replace white for a caramel flavour, and grated lemon zest added to the syrup instead of spice.
