Date and walnut baked apples

Scoring the apples will prevent the skins from exploding during baking.

ingredients

serves 4
4 large cooking apples
6 tablespoons natural unsweetened apple juice
whipped double cream, to serve

filling

50 g (2 oz) dates, stoned and coarsely chopped
15 g (1/2 oz) shelled walnuts, chopped
25 g (1 oz) Demerara sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

method

1. Heat the oven to 180°C (350°F) Gas 4.

2. Using an apple corer or a small sharp knife, remove the core from each apple. Score the skin around the middle of each apple with a sharp knife.

3. Make the filling: mix together the dates, walnuts, sugar and ground cinnamon in a bowl. Use to fill cavities, pressing down firmly with the back of a teaspoon.

4. Place in an ovenproof dish, then pour apple juice around apples.

5. Bake in oven for 50-60 minutes, basting occasionally with the apple juice, until the apples are soft when pierced through the centre with a sharp knife.

6. Serve at once, accompanied by whipped double cream.
