Ingredients

  • 6 British dessert apples or 6 small Bramley cooking apples
  • 6 tbsp chopped dried apricots
  • 6 tbsp roughly chopped hazelnuts
  • zest of 1 large lemon
  • 4 rounded tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp apple juice
  • 225g blackberries
For the sauce:
  • 100g butter
  • 175g light muscovado sugar
  • 100ml double cream

Step by step

Get ahead

Bake the apples a few hours ahead and reheat to serve.

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Core the apples or use a small sharp knife to make a nice wide hole in the middle of each apple. Put the apples in a shallow baking dish.

  2. Mix the apricots, nuts, most of the lemon zest and sugar. Fill each apple with the mixture – sprinkle any left over into the dish. Drizzle with the apple juice and bake for 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small pan bring the sauce ingredients to simmering point. Stir until smooth; set aside.

    Tip

    Here's something a bit different for Bonfire Night, or just whenever you fancy a sweet treat. When cobnuts come into season, try them in place of the hazelnuts.

  4. After the 20 minutes, pour the sauce over the apples and into the dish; top the apples with the blackberries and the remaining lemon zest. Bake for a further 15-20 minutes or until tender.
